Accepting Anxiety

Accepting Anxiety

I legit struggled with this. It was almost as if I was giving up, by accepting that I had anxiety. I didn’t want to have anxiety and I for sure didn’t want to be judged by others. Many nights i’ve cried, why me? Why is this happening to me? Where did this come from? All questions that I’m still trying to unpack.

I remember having internal battles with myself and feeling embarrassed because “I’m suppose to have it ALL together.” Guess what, I don’t...

Operation Wellness

Recently, I've dealt with some extremely stressful situations that caused tension and anxiety. I was faced with deciding how to navigate this thing called stress and still live my best life. For me, I decided to really focus on me. I ditched social media for a few weeks and was "selfish" to my own needs. I decided to implement some new Self-Care Practices. I'm no expert in either, but both have been extremely helpful in my journey to a less stressful life (aka Operation Wellness). The first self-care practice that I implemented was Yoga. WHOOO-hoooo I'm a Yogi! Okay, maybe...
