This day has found me kind of blah. I have been battling the blahs coming on for about a week now. As most of you know I have a history of depression and anxiety. I do good for a while and then I have a season that will hit me. I try hard to take measures that will help me during the blahs. A balance of rest and exercise, eating more fruit and veggies, cutting back on junk, and praying more. I notice my waves of this comes after busy days or periods. I begin to get anxious and that gives me so many symptoms and then I get blah because I feel I can't do what I want/need to.
On a lighter note my husband and I started the Daniel Fast until Easter. I pray we can hold out. We always start well but due to money and flesh we give in. I will be honest it can be expensive to eat healthy and I know there is debate on it. I also know that the investment is worth it for your health. But we will leave it at that for I know first hand how hard it can be to afford healthier options.
I will share five things I need to do today because this is what helps me accomplish things when I feel blah and when I have a hard time getting motivated. A long list can cause me to be overwhelmed.
1. Pray and Read the Bible
2. Straighten Home
3. Make a menu
4. Grocery Shop
5. Take a walk
This type of list above is what I scale back to when I am dealing with what I call the "funk". I will wake up and make a small list like this and do it. Then around lunch I will make a list of 3 things small to do. This helps me stay committed to my health, spiritual walk, family, and our home running.
