After a drowsy, low productive week at work, I did that very wrong thing to skip the anxiety meds two times in a row. I needed my brain back. Back it came, and it produced work, but it stayed in full tilt through the night. Join me in saying: “you dumbass!”.
Started journaling again a couple days ago. Hope I can keep it up and eventually change to a Passion Planner. The interesting thing was that reading some past entries is what motivated me. I want to keep being able to go back and check on myself, on the “days I had nothing important” but end up writing down and it turns out to be so interesting a year later.
It is also a goal of mine to do less things on the computer / electronically. I work 8 hours a day in a computer already, and feel like the actual paper, pens and pencils medium are more relaxing during my free time. Not to mention the distractions that apps and websites can be to me, I browse and look and check but don’t really do anything.
Journaling on paper feels more like “spending time with myself”, investing on myself, and not something absurd like skipping anxiety medicine to catch up at work.
