First way to figure out how to stay sane? Admit that you’re slightly insane!
I mean think about it, instead of taking the cookie cutter route and applying for a new job like everyone else, you’re on a mission to start your own business. On top of starting a profitable business or blog, conducting research, being a social being, and working a “real life” job, you’re expected to act “civilized” and not go apeshit.
I am here to let you know, you are not alone. So many of us endure the struggles of depression and anxiety and still have to go on with life as if all is well. I do this everyday. There are times where nowhere feels better than my bed. I’m in my head, pushing myself to get up, be active, write a blog, go to work, but still, NOTHING HAPPENS. My body lay lifeless and a deep sadness takes over that nearly bring tears to my eyes, but life goes on and we are expected to just get over it.
My 5 Minute Morning Ritual to Remove Feelings of Depression and Anxiety
Fret no more, I am here to help. I am going to share my 5 minute ritual that I do everyday to bring myself out of these instances of sadness.
- Remind yourself that these moments are only “instances”. This moment is only temporary. This instance will pass. You are more than this moment. You are made for greatness and this instance will not prevent you from doing so.
- Read. I take a few minutes to read a passage from something that inspires me or I simply play my favorite audiobook on Audible. Use the link below to start your Free Trial. You can read a post from one of your favorite bloggers or whatever brings positivity and peace to your mind. I’ve listed some of my favorite reads below for you to check out!
- Meditate. Take a few moments to remind yourself of who you are. Recite positive affirmations that prompt you to feel superior. Inhale good and exhale any feelings of negativity, hopelessness or gloom. What you speak into the Universe is what the Universe brings back around to you!
I know, these seem so obvious, but I urge you to try. Trust me, I was never a believer of meditating or positive affirmations. If you had come to me years ago with this, I would have laughed you away. You have to stop and think, there is a huge market for this type of thing and there has to be a reason why.
Before I say goodbye for now, I want to just remind you to take care of yourself. Your self love and care is so vital to your mental health. Do not spread yourself so thin that you do not have the energy to accomplish your own goals and work towards your own dreams. Your future is going to be greater than your past. I’m rooting for you, babe!
