When anxiety is at its worst for me..I detest mornings!
Here's how it is for me sometimes lol. (I am shakin my head in disbelief that the mind can do this to u sometimes!)
I lay in bed and listen to the birds chirping and am at peace...then reality kicks in - the clock radio bursts into life..uggh..another day at the 'saltmine' (already a negative thought grrr)..
Struggle out of bed..rip into the shower...gulp down some brekky coz I know I should (good grief I am a grumpy old bat! lol)..jump in the car and off down the driveway...sheesh no wonder I have a bad day!
But wait, it gets better lol...I work with someone who sometimes arrives on her 'broomstick' and on other days arrives in her 'charriot' and couldn't be nicer.
On my way to work I do all the breathing exercises and the positive talk possible..
I get to work and scan the carpark...yup her car is already here..drat!
Oh well...deep breathing Maree..I get out of the car with 'lead' feet and shakey knees...and off I go!
Thank goodness it's not like this everyday! And now I have written it all down I am going to have a change in morning strategy..I dunno what it's gonna be yet..but I'm thinking lol.
How are mornings for you?
