Do you ever feel stuck in a rut? Like no matter what you're doing, you just can't seem to shake off that nagging feeling of depression or anxiety, and you really don't want it to get worse?
We've all been there at one point or other. So, what can we do to zap that sinking feeling of depression, and that heart-palpitating nervousness quickly, before they get overwhelming?
1. Free write.
That's right, I'm giving you something to do instead of sitting in your misery. Motivate yourself, and grab your journal. It may seem hard at first, but tell yourself that the way you'll feel after doing this exercise is going to be the most rewarding thing you've felt in a while, so it's totally worth it.
If you're new to free writing, that's perfect! If you've done it before, even better! You know how groovy and rewarding it can be.
Here's how it works: I give you a word, and you immediately start to build on that word in your journal. You write anything that comes to mind, either in order, in doodles, in sentences or in random sequence. The goal is to pour everything that's going on in your mind onto that paper. Basically, it's a way to let all your demons, your anger and your resentment out.
Some people choose to do free write every day until that nagging depression or anxiety fades, while others do it when they're lacking inspiration or motivation in their lives to really kick those energy blocks out of their system.
Today, I'm giving you four word choices. You can do as many as you'd like.
