31 days: slow down and enjoy life {goodbye anxiety}

31 days to a better me. 

ok, so maybe I won't blog for 31 days straight, but I think spending the 31 days in October focusing on being a better me is just what I need, and blogging about it will not only help me achieve the goal, but also to help sort my thoughts, share my progress and gain support from others. 

Today after I got up and poured myself a cup of coffee I realized it was going to take us much longer to unpack this house than I thought. I really thought it would come together rather quickly. 

I started to get a little panic-y.

I started to feel my anxiety go through the roof. 

You see anxiety tends to get the best of me in many situations. 

I let it take control.

On my quest to being a better me I need to learn to tell my anxiety to take a hike. 

I need to stop trying to hurry up through everything. I tend to rush to get things done only to rush through the next task.

Today instead of letting my anxiety get me frazzled I took my coffee sat on my lovely couch I've been without for 3 months and watched a bit of TV. 

It was glorious.

And you know what? I still got a ton of things unpacked today, without rushing and feeling anxious. 

I'd say day 1 was a big success.

i hate when my anxiety takes the best of me. i still have to figure out how to tackle it. there are some days i can get away from it completely, while others, it gets the best of me.

good for you for kicking anxiety out! can't wait to read more of your 31 days!

I can totally relate to the anxiety issues. I get panic attacks all the time...for what seems like no reason. It's always nice to take a break and relax! :) Take some time and enjoy your new surroundings. xoxo

Fantastic!!! I just wrote my own post about anxiety! I am all for kicking it in the tuckus with a nice cup of coffee, a deep and easy breath, and a little perspective. Everything that needs to get done always gets done. I'm glad you found this to be true, as well. Isn't peace such a gift!?!
