My #Anxiety was on a level of High this past week. With an accumulation of personal worries and political #stress, i felt the acid reflux in my stomach buzzy feeling i get.
I used to get bad after that... #anxiety, #depression... not sure, was never diagnosed. But I can recognize the feeling now.
This coincided with a weekend with my parents in the #Poconos. And thank goodness. I made a work to-do list and tackled it aggressively. Worked outside past dark. And when i was done, burried my life in a hot tub. I swam as many laps as my legs could handle. After that "took off" the rest of the weekend. It helped me level out, think better, and not be borderline brat with my parents who are the most amazing people on earth. And then I stared at this lake for a while. Sharing the #lake part with you.
If this sounds like a bourgie option. HELL YES! i tapped out and tapped into myself with modern day commodities.. and then absorbed love. I recharged and I feel happy and more #balanced in #emotions. The problems will be there, but i feel better equipped to handle them.
Less bourgie options: beach, hike, staycation without any wifi at home and heavy backyard/fire escape chillen. How do you cope?
