At the best of times, I am feeling anxious because of the unprecedented event we are going through. Some days are great, and others not so. This emotional state ebbs and flows. When things aren’t great, I have to pick myself up and remind myself to take each day as it comes – one minute at a time, one hour at a time. How you treat yourself in these moments matters most to keep your head above water. I’ve recently started journaling – recording my mental state on each day to help me understand my thoughts better. This process helps me stay grounded and focused and connected with thought patterns.
