FIghting the Negativity

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Omygosh. I am feeling so incredibily negative right now! I know it's because I'm tired, but this is really hard!

Yesterday I left work and I was feeling pretty nauseaus, I had a sinus headache, and I was getting cranky. Never good. I managed to throw a pork roast in the slow cooker for today, but otherwise, I felt pretty awful. In fact, I was in bed at 6:30pm, but my headache wasnt helping me sleep, so around 8pm I finally took a sleeping pill and fell asleep. Needlss to say, I missed dance class last night. But with the headache I was having, I dont think I could have tolerated the loud music, or the spinning or anything else. Plus, our teacher wasnt there so we werent learning anything new. I still felt a little bad, but the headache obviously won out.

This morning I woke up to no headache, but I felt exhausted. My jaw is hurting so I must have been clenching my jaw while sleeping last night. And I am super cranky - probably because I am tired.

And now I feel like my brain keeps wanting to focus on negatives. I dont want to feel negative today! I am trying extremely hard to steer my brain in the opposite direction. I dont know what has come over me! Does anyone else ever get this way? I need to turn this ship around quickly!

Planning to get in a run today after work and hopefully that will help me feel better. I need to make a huge dent on my quilting tonight, too. At least it is Wednesday, right?

  Yes, I get this way too. Today, as a matter of fact. Maybe it was the full moon last night:-) Can't beat exercise, always helps. Only two more days . . .

    A run sounds like a good plan! We all have our off days, it is like they say, this too shall pass.

    Get some sunlight...this time of year and through winter less sun means more negativity. You might want to replace your bulbs with full spectrum light bulbs as well. And of course running will certainly help.

    A run and some quilting should turn you around!

    Write down 10 things you are grateful for and that should kick that negativity demon right in the rear!! I know exactly how you feel. It's nudging me on my shoulder as well BUT NOT TODAY!! I have SOOO many things to be grateful for and I'm sure you do too!!

    yes we are at HUMP Day baby! See there is a positive! Runs always help my mood and surprisingly if I run with a headache, they go away by the time I am back home. Keep fighting those negative thoughts. If they do pop up, make a positive out of it somehow. Hope your day gets better!
