There will be days were just existing is your best coping mechanism and I have had a few of those in the past few months, for multiple reasons so I decided that the best way to get myself out of this lull was by giving myself fixed targets. In the past I suffered occasionally from agoraphobia so forcing myself to step a foot outside my house for my own well being was the only way and believe me its hard and I’m never one for letting myself down. I gave myself a reason for leaving the house, simple things like an hour at gym, visiting a friend or heading out to buy myself a bunch of flowers. It has progressively made me realised I now much prefer being out of my house then in it. Being among people has helped me deal with a few of my stresses the last few months.
I love taking the time out of my schedule to sit somewhere and watch the world go by, I love my journey to the gym, I enjoy sitting in a chilled cafe, drawing people and listening to their stories. Its simple things like that can give you a little boost when you’re having a down moment of just copying and existing taking yourself out of your stress and living in the moment I find has really helped me make sense of my place recently.
