It’s Panic Day.
It really is. And I told my husband I’d forgotten to schedule a post for it, and he did a quick, sharp intake of breath, and looked all concerned. Piss taking bugger.
But the point of Panic Day is to recognise how bad it is for us, and that stress can knock years off your life; it’s a genuine reason to practice self care, and generally being a bit nicer to ourselves. In a world where we are constantly available and switched on, this seems impossible, but I’ve just had a radical idea. Put your phone down, in another room, and ignore it. You’ll be fine. *twitch*
No one is born feeling bad about themselves.
And yet, every day I see clients that have such a downer on themselves, it’s no wonder their confidence is rocked to its core.
Before we knew anything about other people’s opinions, judgements, thoughts and feelings, we were pretty much ok with ourselves. Unless, like me, you’re born with something like Autism that makes you feel apart and separate, you’re pretty much at one with everyone else.
Did you know it’s Be Heard Day?
It made me wonder. Do you listen to everything you hear? And do you believe everything you are told? Do you believe everything you tell yourself? Just because you think it doesn’t make it true
Anxiety – Is it a #firstworldproblem or a real life problem?
For some people in the workplace, there is nothing more likely to provoke the dramatic ermahgerd eye-roll than to hear about someone’s issues with anxieties. Particularly if you were born in the 80’s to early 2000s.
It’s Ditch your New Years resolutions day!
Rejoice all you quitters!
Research has shown that January 1 is absolutely NOT the best time to start making changes, and resolutions so firmly set in place on December 31st will already be wavering by January 1 (well, it’s almost still Christmas innit), and by January 17th, we’ve all had enough.
