High Anxiety

Or the better version:

(At the 2:55 mark)

I've been struggling with anxiety BIG TIME lately.  And who can blame me?  A lot of people are!

All day long we are bombarded with the ins and outs of candidates and awful things they say.

(And, frankly, Donald Trump scares me...)

Between negativity on television, and negativity with my friends on social media, it's all a bit much to take.  (And honestly a lot of this might just be hormonal!)

And this year it's especially bad.

I've been teetering on this edge of dissolving into tears.

And I did just that last night while starting dinner.

I pulled sausage out of fridge and lost it.  I was all:
Thankfully, The Flash wasn't full of his usually stupidity and I was able to watch it.  Yes, Barry's
convenient forgetting that messing with the timeline is BAD drove me out of the room last week.  This week, he apparently got a clue.

It's been a bit of a struggle to get up every morning and exercise.  I'd much rather sleep longer.  But I know that that's not what I need.

Though, today I did 40 minutes of Yin Yoga.  I know that I need cardio, but I just couldn't.  Actually, I think it helped!  I might try to add 15 minutes of yoga in the mornings.... if I can get up for it...

I think until this passes, I need to simply do the best that I can.

I'm trying my best to work on my diet.  I know that it helps.  But sometimes the occasional glass of wine with dinner is consumed.

I'm trying my best to exercise.  I'm about to finish up Focus T25.  I'm also running.  In fact, I had a race this weekend!

As long as I get up in the morning and DO something, it'll get me through.

You know what also helps?
