You might get away with this one if it’s a weekend and you need a day just to unwind. But on weekdays (or your working days) beware of starting without a plan. If you struggle with your mood or anxiety, especially in the mornings, make sure you lay down a plan for the next day. Just write down five things you want to achieve that day then, when you wake up, just go ahead and do them. Don’t ask yourself how you feel because it will take you down a rabbit hole and — once you’re there — it can be hard to climb back out.
Great advice all around. Thank you for this article.
