In my last post, I wrote about my recent break up. I’m still experiencing varied moods due to the end of that romantic relationship. I have good days and bad ones.
I’m happy to say I’m using the tools I have, and they help a great deal.
My most important tool is meditation. I am able to release a lot of difficult emotions very quickly and thoroughly by doing some simple meditative techniques I’ve learned over the years. I wrote about one technique in that last post.
I’ve used medication, too. I have some medicine I can take for anxiety. I have used them occasionally. I used them daily just after the break up.
I’ve spoken to my therapist often, and that helps give me clarity.
I’ve chatted with my best friend multiple times each day. He’s a rock in this situation, and I’m grateful for his love and support.
I’ve exercised a lot, too. I’ve walked and walked. I enjoy speed walking, so I do it daily these days.
I’ve been careful with what I eat. I allow myself some junk every once in a while, but I’m careful. I eat an almost completely vegetarian diet. It feels like the right thing for me to do.
I’ve been getting good sleep most nights, which is an enormous help. Sleep resets me, so I can start fresh every morning.
Yesterday was a rough day, but I used the tools, and I survived. Today feels better except for the fact I didn’t get enough sleep for some unknown reason. I’ll be fine.
I can see light at the end of the tunnel.
