It’s 6:30, it’s a Tuesday morning as I’m writing this, I have so much to do today, and already I have realised today is a complete write off. I had some plans for things to do today, I had blog posts to write, a recipe to perfect, a list of things a mile long to do, and honestly is there nothing that is going to make it all get done today.
I literally sat in bed, watched the ceiling, wondering if it was slowly going to fall in on me. It didn’t happen but you know, swings and roundabouts.
I didn’t get up and check my phone which is a regular occurrence in the morning. The ritual goes phone, tea, breakfast, phone and attempt to look like some semblance of a human being.
Instead this morning I just couldn’t, I didn’t want to get out of bed, I didn’t want to move, I didn’t want to do anything.
Now I know my mental health isn’t in the greatest place right now, but it’s a rollercoaster with mental health.
Sobbing on my bed first thing in the morning isn’t the best way to start my day, I’ve actually had better surprisingly enough. After I’ve had that crying session, getting it all out my system, I’ve decided that what might be a good option is to write a bit of a post about it.
It probably sounds weird to write a post, but if I can do something productive with my pain, get my emotions out and maybe help someone else, then it’s a good thing to be honest!
Some days are going to be write off, there are going to be days when your emotions are so overwhelming that even doing the basic tasks are a struggle.
As someone who might be reading this, you might have a full time job, it’s a week day and having a day where you just need to take time out and to just focus on yourself is impossible. On those days though, when you’re struggling so much, you can’t take a day off, you need to earn the money to pay for your things here are some things you can do – it won’t solve all of your problems but they can make the day a little better.
Take a deep breath, in through the nose, make yourself a cuppa and write down all your feelings.
When I manage to write down my feelings it honestly makes everything so much better. I feel like I am able to express how I feel and just put my heart and soul into something.
After that and you’ve had to go to work, or if you can take the day off, please do – once you’ve finished, go to the shop, buy snacks, run a lovely hot bath, put some music on, get a book or watch a movie. Have a total self care night, take time away from everything.
I’m the kind of person that is always on the go, always trying to do something, always on the go. Doesn’t matter if it is social media, blogging or just life in general I’m always trying to do something, and lately I’ve just completely forgotten how to chill out.
This post is a reminder that even when you’re struggling, you feel like the world is caving in on you and all you want to do is hide, it will be okay, it will get better.
Bad days happen, it’s actually very natural, but as long as you accept that you will have bad days and you take steps to make sure that you deal with it in the best way possible, it will make your days easier.
You will get through this, you’re strong as hell, and not only that I believe in you and your strength.
Stay strong. You’ve got this.
