Now, Don’t get me wrong, I have had a great start to 2019. I have just returned from Bali, One of my favourite places in the world with some of my favourite people, having the time of my life, However, I returned to Manchester Airport with a bang on Monday and the holiday blues have really hit me hard. I returned to the cold, soggy grey weather and I just wasn’t prepared to feel like crap. I’m sure it was a touch of jet lag, a sniffle I had picked up on the plane & the sickness bug I picked up the day before I flew home that didn’t help my mood upon my return, however, the overwhelming feeling was very real. At the start of a new year we see Instagrams, blog posts and podcasts about amazing goals people have set themselves, diets, fitness plans & the new year, New me chat. I find it just a little too much for my brain to process. I love setting myself a couple of goals but I try not to overpower myself with total lifestyle changes all at once.
So I have the holiday Blues / January Blues so here is what I have been doing to help my anxiety?
A one size fits all concept doesn’t work when it comes to tackling anxiety & self-care so these methods are what help me, You may find they help you too, however, it’s important for you to try your own methods and see what works.
