Anxiety is closely related to depression. You tend to feel extremely negative about situations. You worry unnecessarily. So much so that it interferes with anything that you wish to do. You fear. Fear for life – and that is exactly the reason why I have given up driving. I just fear that I might die at any moment if I take on the wheels. And that is the story of how I lost my independence.
I completely understand that you must have tried to do some of these things and maybe pushed yourself really hard at times. Being there, I understand that it is not an easy task. The struggle is real. And now I will talk about this wonderful app, Thrive, which will help you in a way, even if the help is small!
Plug in your headphones, install this app and then you will be in for a ride – ride towards calmness. The first set of evaluation is about your current state. My current state is not very pleasant and aahh, I have finally come to terms with it (you see, talking about it here!). But I at least know that I have to take special care of myself. Trust me, when you get to know about it, it might be disturbing but relaxing in some way. You know you have a problem which has a solution! And then as you dig deep into the app, you come across various things like a mood tracker which over a period of time, helps you feel good each day.
There are different exercises too, for which if you take 10 to 15 minutes out of your life, they work wonders in bringing some peace at the end of the day. This has worked well for me and thus, I want to suggest it to people out there, if they are struggling in the same way as me.
I have achieved a different level of calmness and come to terms with a lot of things. Having said that, I don’t mean that I have become ignorant about my current state – I am just gathering all of it that takes to get up and go out and do something about it. And I am sure I am going to get things in place for myself. I am already on it. That positivity, my friends, is the first step towards feeling right.
Every morning I get up, I am not at all motivated to live through the day. And that is an issue to worry about if it is a perpetual feeling. My job is suffering because of it, my blog is suffering and above all, my personal life is suffering too. Living life should be an effortless process, which is not in my case. I know I can do better than what I am doing today at work. If you have been following my posts lately, they lack the emotional connect which they used to have earlier. And I know I am far better than this!
That is why I have decided to listen to anyone who tries to reach out in their times of distress. I might not take them out of the sadness but the sense of being heard is priceless and I know it – the hard way!
Let’s talk. 🙂
PS: This is a very personal and heartfelt post. If this helped even a single reader, I know my purpose is solved!
