Lately, I’ve got a feeling that I’m drowning under the weight of stress. It’s like I have this invisible pressure pushing me in every direction and no matter what I do there is no escape. My emotions are all over the place and seem to be constantly fluctuating between sadness, anger, fear, and apathy.
My physical health isn’t doing so great either - my body feels tense all the time as if it’s preparing for some impending disaster. Seemingly simple tasks take twice as long to complete because my concentration is so scattered. My sleep has also been really messed up and restful nights are few and far between lately.
When things get too overwhelming, I try to make time for myself to go on walks or just sit in my room with music playing in the background. Taking deep breaths and trying to clear my mind can make a big difference when it comes to managing my stress levels but even then it only works for a short while until fresh anxieties find their way back into my headspace.
I really need to start taking better care of myself physically and emotionally if I am going to be able to reach a sense of equilibrium again.
