When life overwhelms me, I let everything go. I put on blinders and do what has to be done, and only what has to be done. I focus. Even in there is down time in the middle of a stressful situation, I remain focused, reading a book in 2 days or watching every episode of a TV show back to back.
When life eases up a bit and I take stock of the things around me, usually the first thing I do is clean my house. I am not a good house keeper in the best of times and in the worst of times, it gets disgusting. When I have clean sheets on the bed, you know that I am in a good mental place.
There are clean sheets on my bed today. And my bathroom is sparkly, the kitchen counters have been wiped down, the floor has been vacuumed. I didn't go so far as dusting (I RARELY go that far) but for me the house is clean. And, in the process, my head is clearer.
Thank you for the comments and messages on my last post. I am still not back 100% yet, but I am feeling more myself today than I have in a long time.
