Crusty eyes, with chipped nails, and messy hair can leave you feeling a bit down about yourself, especially on a bright and shiny day in the midst of summer. You shouldn't have to worry about your body on top of the other daily stressors that you come in contact with on a daily basis. That's why I started following a routine that consisted of waking up earlier, doing something I love for an hour, and then enjoying my coffee before tackling my day. I started writing because it helps me clear my state of mind, but seeing as writing isn't for everyone, I wanted to take some time to share with you my daily routine of keeping my body fresh, as well as my mind.
It’s very easy to get very overwhelmed when you are a cashier. The environment in which you work is often the same and the people you come in contact with on a daily basis are almost always the same as well. It’s very easy to get caught up in the motions and stuck in routine while on the job day in and day out. Which makes it easier to get caught up in where you once were in life, how you got to where you are and also places a very heavy focus on where you would like to be. The impact that the environment, the people, customers, and co-workers that you work around all have a very strong impact on your mood while you’re on the job.
Several hours of not having anything to write about will give you such a headache. Wrong. Several hours of not writing down words or thoughts will leave you with a jumbled up mess of anxiety in your mind. This statement is very true to me. This will usually result in going insane, and/or going borderline absolutely crazy. If you are like me, you may find it just as hard to do daily tasks, as it is normally when you choose to start venting to those you love, or try therapy, or just find your own way of venting. My way of venting is writing but it's hard to find the time to write when I become so depressed that I actually start to sleep in, and create some type misconception of the time that I have been allotted to live on this earth.
We met at the mall, surrounded by many people going about their own business of spending their money on material things. Each person residing in their own minds, with their own thoughts, in their own timeline. Sometimes, in our mind, we can’t scream, everything is monotone, and there isn’t any type of punctuation. The worries just go on until they don’t anymore, and that’s when other events distract us. Even then, though, the mind won’t stop. That would be where the anxiety starts to weed its way through our thought patterns.
I started to get these weird sensations in my legs and suddenly I'll have to flail them around so that it'll stop. Okay, well, maybe not flail (that's what I used to do), but more like move them enough so that the sensations would cease. These sensations are so very different from any other sensations, so I figured it may be a bit helpful to write out and share some of my coping skills for Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). While I am at it, why not share what I have learned?
For the past couple nights, I’ve been cooking dinner (the above three are such) and it was brought my attention to the fact that I have been drinking a lot more than usual lately. Times are changing from being that young teenager I once was, and I can imagine that I am not the only person in this world going through these changes. This will apply to anyone and everyone growing up in this century.
