This month has sucked.
September was amazing. I was riding high on the best month my business has ever had by exponential numbers. I was feeling secure in a romantic relationship. I was feeling on top of the world.
But that was September, and this is not. Personally, professionally, financially, and spiritually, I have been wrecked. Symbolized by an actual wreck. And since I didn’t listen to that. I ended up with a whack on the head and concussion.
What is the recommended activity when one has a concussion? Sitting in a dark room doing nothing. Not even sleeping.
What is the one thing you should not do when you battle with depression? Sit in a dark room and do nothing.
I have a “depression protocol” ritual I do. When I feel the blues coming on I make certain I am out of bed every day by 8:00 am. I drink water, I take vitamins, I go for a walk. After my walk, I drink more water, do pushups, make my bed, and take a shower. ( Don’t wait to make the bed after the shower, you will end up, back in bed).
This usually keeps me from ruminating all day. Which is part of the depression cycle. Get up, get out, get going. Surround yourself with people who love you and want the very best for you.
I know I haven’t taken good care of this blog, but I miss the connection of blogging. I hope that if you find this you will join me, and encourage me through this journey back to awesomer.
