Hey anxious mama.... Guess what woke me up this morning before my alarm clock??? 🤭
Nope...not a kid crying; a kid puking; or a kid with a nightmare.
Not even my 41 year old bladder needing to relieve itself for the third time during the night. 🙈
It was that freak of nature ANXIETY that punched me in the gut before my alarm clock even had a chance to smack me in the head! 😤
What I was feeling anxious about doesn’t even matter. It’s the same ol’ story no matter what the subject of it is. Usually something I have very little, to no control over, and often something that I can do more about when I’m actually awake and it’s daylight! ☀️ I did eventually get up to dress for my workout, then I ended up crawling myself right back in to bed. Definitely NOT feeling up to facing the day yet, not to mention allowing this feeling to hover over me when I’m lucid and it’s still dark out. Better to crawl back into bed and sleep it off. 🙅🏻♀️ Wanna know the problem with that? Burrowing back into bed just had me burrowing further into my stress! I tossed and turned; I tried talking myself into just sleeping; and then I tossed some more.
When I finally gave in to the clock, I felt worse getting out of bed the second time than I did the first. Because now I missed all the things that actually HELP ease my worried mind.
Gratitude, checking in with my accountability partners, and exercise. 🏃🏻♀️ Tomorrow is a new day. Let’s just hope it starts out with less pee breaks, more energy, and less overthinking!! #sweetdreamsworld #anxietysucks😔 #gottapeeagain
