With no gym this week to try and help my knee I feel at a bit of a loose end in the mornings at the moment, usually, I’ve got a clear schedule of tasks that need doing in a certain order to ensure that my day runs smoothly. I’m loathed to adjust my bedtimes/wake up times for this short period of time so need to find something productive to do in the morning.
I never thought of myself as an anxious person really, yes there are times I get nervous/stressed but generally, I think I manage most situations head-on. However, a few years ago while seeing my therapist who also does cranial sacral therapy said that my nervous system was on high alert most of the time and that my body is quite anxious on the inside.
The last few nights, as it’s been quite cold here in the UK at night I’ve put an extra throw on my bed, it’s a beautiful faux fur one which I use in my reading room, it’s quite heavy and I’ve noticed that when I use it on my bed I seem to sleep a little better so thinking about investing in a weighted blanket as in the summer I’ll be far too hot for this throw.
I’ve heard friends talk about using a weighted blanket to help with their anxiety and I can now understand what they mean when they say that it helps to calm them down.
Just had notification that my supplements are on their way and hopefully my herbal tincture will arrive tomorrow too so time to really put some focus back on my health & wellbeing.
I don’t like wishing away time but can’t wait for Easter to come when I’ve got some annual leave from the Uni and also the long Easter weekend, going to use this time to reset my life & start afresh as feel a little odd at the moment, hard to describe but just a bit like I’m just going through the motion and not really engaging…
