My mind feels so much more at ease after meditating. It’s a very similar relationship to working out. Most people have the hardest part getting to the gym, me included. I have the hardest time carving out time in my day to meditate.
When I’m reality, I only do 10 minutes. It’s so hard for me to sit still for that long. However, it’s what my brain needs. I’m in between a rock and a hard place because I feel very depressed when I wake up. The last two days of waking up and going to work have been very lack luster and I’ve been turning to other coping mechanisms.
Finding joy in everyday can be very difficult when you wake up feeling depressed. I need to find joy in each day to survive. It is a healthy coping skill. My dog brings me a lot of joy and just taking him outside can help boost my mood.
I throw myself into other things, that is completely distracting my mind that I really have no idea what I’m doing. The only thing I know, this is temporary. The feelings I have are temporary. My current living situation is temporary. This mental distress is temporary.
