Distract (13)

Sometimes things happen that make you anxious, and all you can do it wait it out. Here are some things to do in the mean time.
Go to work
buy yourself iced coffee
make a list of all the positive things
sing songs really loudly
find music that makes you feel whole
journal, blog, write about something
read a book
watch a really enthralling TV show – get lost in someone else’s story
focus on amazing memories
read position articles online
research something
exercise
talk to people around you
see out live music
rearrange your living space
declutter and get rid of what no longer serves you
write love letters
bite your tongue
paint your nails
practice smiling
be in nature
download meditation apps and listen to those
brew tea
browse a bookstore or library
imagine new worlds
I find that talking to myself helps the most when I can’t be distracted. I usually talk to myself in the form of journal entries. I made lists and focus on what I know to be true and the positive experiences I’ve had in the past. It’s sometimes a game of self-assurance that gets you through.
xo.
