Tools For Friday's Feelings
It's Friday and the weekend is at your fingertips, but feelings of being overwhelmed, sad, depressed, anxiousness and such are there too! Dang it! Such a buzz kill! Here are a few tips to help with the hangover so you can enjoy your Friday and the weekend:
Angry: exercise, full cardio workout or any movement that keeps you and others safe. Bike riding has been a favorite for a long time and many miles!
Jealous: focus on yourself, your qualities and uniqueness, write them down and say them out loud.
Anxiety: be more mindful. Take a inhale to the count of 6, hold it for four, and exhale for 6 and repeat.
Irritated: widen your perspective. Ask questions to learn instead of proving a point. Hard, but not impossible and one I have never regretted doing.
Tired: turn the phone off and go to sleep! A personal favorite....so much that we don't allow cell phones in our bedrooms.
Uninspired: take a shower a cold one, turn on your favorite music, DANCE like a fool! Another personal favorite.
Self-doubt: journal, allow a stream of consciousness to flow. Oh who am I kidding, I love and do this one too. Plus, a piece a paper never judges, talks back, and can hold a secret.
Depressed: walk in nature, spend time with pets and friends. Shoot! This one has never failed either. Highly recommend.
