What You'll Need
- Just yourself
What You'll Do
- Acknowledge how you feel. Spend some time asking where in your body you’re feeling this anxiety. Tell yourself that even though you’re experiencing this issue, you love and accept yourself anyway. This will remove an extra layer of guilt or shame associated with experiencing these feelings.
- Be grateful for some of the good things that have happened over the weekend. Try a 10-finger gratitude exercise, listing 10 good things that you have achieved, noticed or that have happened. Doing this with a partner or a friend is heartening.
- Schedule three positive things over the forthcoming week. For example, see a friend who makes you feel great, plan a delicious meal or book out an evening to do something lovely for yourself such as a home-facial or a craft activity.
- Plan ahead. Plan your meals, know how many late nights you’re anticipating. Cancel anything that is causing you distress.
- Stay off social media. Seeing other peoples’ perfect lives can lead to a comparison melt-down. Don’t do that.
- 6. Meditate ahead of going to sleep. Getting a goods nights’ sleep will set you up for the week ahead and meditation can help you gain perspective on your anxieties.
