Needing a little air?

Have you ever felt like all four walls around you are caving in? Or that the world just keeps spinning and spinning with nowhere to go? Well, hang in there, reader- you’re surely not alone.

The best thing for myself when I feel “out of funk” is to get out! Sometimes the environment that you’re in can be a main trigger. Try moving yourself outdoors.

Once outside, now you can settle into a new place; One that’s more easy and peaceful. Walk around, breathe. In and out.  Focus on the nature around you.

Instead of just forgetting what you might be upset about or overwhelmed with, you’re going to come up with a PLAN OF ACTION for when you walk back to “home base.”  Use the time to give thought to how and what you feel, why you feel that way, and how you can change it for yourself.

Particularly, I’ve been struggling with stress around preparing for university in the fall — placement exams, packing, settling in, going to appointments, financial aid, and everything in between. Every now and again I find the stress of having to manage all these things overwhelming.  So much so that I may forget to take a step back for myself.

But when I remember to get out, change my surroundings and breathe I once again feel a sense of renewal.  So start learning to appreciate what you can do when you put your mind, energy, and WILL to it.  You’ll be glad you did!
