depression/anxiety

Posted by brit @brit, Feb 3, 2019

Today if feel so anxious and depressed. I say that because I feel that every day. Nothing changes and you know what because I am not doing anything for myself. Tomorrow I am starting a new yoga class it will be here at home alone. Its a start and I am tired of feeling this way and I must do something to
help myself instead of hoping the Lord will do it. I have to partisipate too. Wish me well and will keep you posted. God Bless Patti

@brit. Good for you Exercise of some kind ,eating right staying away from sugar as much as you can and eating good cats will help you feel better De-stress yourself ,my tool box is full of things I do to keep going The Lord gave us our minds and knowledge to help ourselves Theses a saying God helps those who help themselves ,and He does Go for it

I am going to "go for it". Tomorrow morning my husband and I will start walking on the tread mill and have planned on planting our own veggies
That would be something to do to keep your mind off of yourself. Will keep you posted. Thanks for your comments. Patti

Guess what! I went for it. We walked for about 15 mins or so and then I came in and did some yoga. I am going to try this every day and maybe I will see improvement, why did I say "maybe" think positive and that's what I plan on doing. Hope you are feeling somewhat better. One thing I have learned our Lord will help but he expects you to get "on board too". Thanks for caring God Bless Patti

I'm working on pushing them down. My husband just had a huge load of dirt brought in so now I guess tomorrow we will start spreading
it and go for it. Like you, I think gardening will help my frame of mind. My Dad always had a big garden each year and Mum would
can so many veggies for the winter time. God Bless…..and hey you did conquer something. It made you feel better about yourself/
Hope I have the same luck. Patti

@brit I’m so happy that you walked!! And being outside is medicine all by itself! At least you live in Florida, I live in Colorado and some days have to force myself to get out. But it’s gotten to be sick a habit, that go every day except when it’s icy. Do you have a smart phone? Mine came with an app that keeps track of how much I walk each day. Just keep it in my pocket. Makes a difference knowing you’ve achieved something! Keep up the good work , or should I say, good walk!

@brit, yoga is a great idea. I'm hoping to start a new class soon. It's very relaxing and helpful for anxiety

I just read an article in a Fabric Art magazine that was very good and I guess I was meant to read it today. Titled “ You Don’t have to Be Good at Art to Benefit from an Artistic Hobby” by Casey Lesser. It says everyone can benefit from the arts whether they’re talented or not. “A plethora of research studies have shown that expressing ourselves through art can help to ease a wide range of illnesses and afflictions, from anxiety and depression, to dementia and cancer. More broadly, making art—be that sketching, writing poetry, dancing or playing with clay—can make us feel happier and more relaxed, and can also help to improve our observation, motor and problem-solving skills.” How do we find the time? Set aside a portion of your time spent on electronics to doodling, knitting, painting, etc. Few people have hobbies because “we’re afraid of being bad at them.” As a result we’re missing out on the benefits that leisure activities can deliver—like making us creative, happy and calm.
So let’s get doodling, fishing, playing card, birdwatching, sewing, painting, gardening. Sure can’t hurt!

@becsbuddy Thank you for sharing this.
My input-art helps keep me sane. When we doing creative things no matter what it is it is not bad. We all need to try not to compare ourselves to others and enjoy the process. Happy creating when you can. Doodling is good for the heart.
