My thoughts are hanging heavily at the back of my mind again tonight.
No specific thoughts, actually. Just a very real heaviness encompassing my entire body.
Focus on your breathing. See the darkness. Follow the motion. You’re spinning. A never ending abyss.
It’s peaceful to a certain extent. The breathing is easy. Thoughts are no longer racing.
Then the moment passes; you’re lying in your bed again, staring at the ceiling, your heart pounding in your chest.
“Anxiety my old friend, it’s been a while.” It’s real again. So, make a conscious effort to breathe slowly, eat well, sleep a lot, read, drink tea. Listen deeper. Take the sounds in; feel the emotions.
This too shall pass.
