Anxiety Journey Part 3

Hey cupcakes! Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, which means you have a whole day to celebrate self love! :) In light of this self love, I thought it would be a great time to update you all on my anxiety journey (read my last post here) and the goals I set for myself:

1. Learning deep breathing/meditation - I had some open space in my schedule this semester, so I actually decided to take a mindfulness class to help with my anxiety. Honestly, this is one of the best classes I have taken in college, just because it actually really helps me focus my energy away from my anxiety and onto being productive. I still have a long way to go with learning meditation, but this class is definitely a great start for me!

2. Finding the right smells - I have still be enjoying the scents I have found (especially the Lemon Essential Oil from Maple Holistics), but I haven't been remembering to use them as much as I'd like.... Hopefully I can start again this month!

3. Finding an artistic way to fight it - As I said in my last post, I have been enjoying my bullet journal and have been continuing with that... I also bought my first ever adult coloring book, and I can't wait for it to be delivered in the next couple of days! :) Lent starts tomorrow, and I plan on being very ambitious by giving up all social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). I think this will be a great opportunity to spend my time doing something creative!

4. Keeping you all updated - Not gonna lie, I totally forgot to post an update post last month (oops!), but I promise to continue updating you all! :)

  1. I totally relate to this post. I find guided meditations really help me clear my mind. And I also like to repeat this quote in my head whenever I feel my anxiety getting bad..."All is well in my world and I am safe."
