I'm trying a new exercise today. I've noticed that when I'm feeling anxious, it helps a good deal if I either talk to someone about it, or just write it out. Since I'm at work right now I can't talk about it, I've decided that I'm going to write out here how I'm feeling in as much detail as possible. I'm feeling tense at the moment, hands are sweaty and my mind is racing. I'm finding it hard to focus. I've been trying to take a few minutes of time out to do some breathing exercises and relax, but there's a lot going on at the office and I keep getting interrupted by coworkers wanting to chat. I would love to be able to close my eyes for about 10 minutes and just focus on breathing slowly, but here in the office I'm running the risk of getting caught doing that, and that wouldn't look good. I did go for a walk a little earlier, which helped. My anxiety is actually going down as I'm writing this, so I'm thankful that this is helping too. I need to get into the habit of taking care of myself; when my anxiety level goes up, I often put off doing something about it because I'm busy. I realize that taking care of it and getting myself into a better mindset needs to be my #1 priority, so I'll be coming here more often to write and just get stuff off my chest. Thanks for bearing with me as I ramble lol. Cheers!
