Why do I have to be mindful?
When you hit those lows you need to be clear enough to recognize what is going on.
Let’s say that the clouds are getting darker. You know the feeling. Life kinda sucks for no reason. It’s just a temporary imbalance. Just know that it will pass. Here’s a list with three bullet points for you :
Hit the gym : Keep the gym bag packed. If you have the time then go!
Go for a walk : Always have a good audioobook downloaded on your Iphone. Take a walk. Listen to something good while breathing that delicious air.
Eat a fruit : One thing that often happens when one hit a low is that we turn to food. Make sure that you have fruits in the fridge, not cookies. Sugar is a quick fix but tend to lead to even more anxiety in the long run.
