So I'm starting to realize that I feel like I'm at a point where I'm talking about my anxiety enough that I'm getting stuck trying to make sure I'm coping with it. Also, I'm feeling like I'm not always letting go of things as well as I would like to. I realize this is because I'm not making the time to relax the way I need to. I'm at a very busy point in my life with family, work, etc. that I'm having trouble fitting in time to just be at home and do nothing.
I'm working through an anxiety workbook recommended by my therapist. The section I've been working is all about relaxation. The different types of relaxation for my self personally, as well as for the activities I enjoy and time to relax with the people I care about. I started to fell my anxiety rise the other day just trying to figure out when to fit this time in. I know it will be what it will be but I consistently feel like I never have enough time for everything that needs to be done. I need to re-prioritize what is important to me, what needs to be done, and what can be put off for another day.
I frequently feel like I need help to get even the day to day tasks done because I come home from work so tired most days. It's tough being a single parent because everything seems to fall to me. My family is pretty spread out so there isn't even anyone close by me that can come help me if I need it. I'm starting to feel burned out so some re-prioritizing is mandatory. I think tomorrow I'll spend some time figuring it out in the morning.
