Feeling a little down

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

It's been an emotional day. It's been kind of rough all day, and now especially I am feeling in a midday slump. Drank some chamomile tea and ate a small piece of chocolate while listening to soothing music.

It's dangerous feeling down about one thing because sometimes for me that leads to feeling down about other things, like not yet being at the point I'd like to be at in my career/education. But I'm being mindful about my emotions and making a conscious decision not to follow the negative spiral downward into a perpetual pity-party for myself.

So here I am blogging instead!

I think a renewed commitment to my goals (diet and otherwise) will help pull me out of this slump. I can get excited about what I have accomplished so far (ran and walked today at the university for the second time!) and look forward to additional accomplishments to come.

My goal is to be able to run a mile without stopping, no matter how slowly I run.

    Thank you so much! It's a new day, and I'm hoping this mood will pass.

    We all have days like that. They can linger. Hang on, you have so much support here. Try and do something physical, a long walk, some other exercise. It will send endorphins to your brain and make you feel better! I'm rooting for you!

    Thank you for your encouragement! That phrase is something my mom always says to cheer me up. :)

    It sound like you are doing everything right. Remember "this too shall pass"
I have minor bouts of depression (my mother committed suicide, so nothing like her dark black depressions, but still based on chemistry not reality) and that little phrase has helped me a lot. Just keeping in my mind that it will pass, I will feel better in time, I will feel joy again always gives me hope
