Well, I haven’t posted much lately, but it has been a busy time – my kids were born on 6/7/05 and 6/11/07 so there were two birthdays within a week. And of course Father’s Day.
Anyway, I’ve been working on my anxiety. Tonight I tried a “de-tox” bath, which was VERY nice whether it detoxes or not. Epsom salts, baking soda, and lavender essential oil in a HOT bath for 20 minutes. I feel WONDERFUL.
I’ve also been working on gratitude. I write down five things in the morning and five things in the evening that I am grateful for, work or personal life. I think that it is helping shift my focus from the negatives, the fears, the uncertainty around me and helping me calm down. I am also eating better overall and trying to watch quantities as well, plus walking at least 2 miles every day. All of it seems to be helping. 2 days ago
