I’m not competing with others, I’m competing with myself to be a better me.

Sounds weird... but sometimes I simply brush my teeth with the wrong hand in the morning as it forces my focus and doesn’t allow my “monkey mind” to keep spinning... 👍🏼

Well fellow fighters, today I bought some charcoal pencils and drawing supplies. It's been years since I've sat and drew. Nature is phenomenal to me, so tonight I will draw something that brings a smile to my face. Maybe my late dog or a horse in full flight. I'm looking forward to forgetting my issues for a while. Godspeed.

To stay present productive what I do is when my phone gets to 10% I have to put it on charge and not go on it till it’s above 60% and within that time I read a book, clean or finish work that needs to be done.

My husband and i both live with severe mental health problems. He lives with addiction, myself with PTSD and DID. We have made it a habit to check in with each other by asking “head and heart?” This gives us both the opportunity to really think about where we are mentally and emotionally and hold each other accountable for voicing those thoughts and feelings. Checking in with your support system can feel overwhelming, so on those days we send a simple text “H&H”

I sit down in my bed at night with a journal and write about how I feel in that moment. It helps me to focus on the physical sensations and to simply observe and describe them. For example, if I'm anxious I can feel it in my chest or if I feel lost there is a lump in my throat. I try to concentrate on these feelings and just let them be. It's helpful because I am not over-analyzing or rejecting anything.

I finally realize what effect meditation has on me. I can identify my thoughts much better. I tend to discover the thoughts when I suddenly feel down and I know why. I started to talk back to the negative voices in my head. That's a huge win for me.

I’m trying to meditate and write what I’m grateful for everyday. And sometimes it’s tough to find things I’m grateful for at the very worst of times or when I’m not feeling good, but I am going to try anyway. I’ve also been limiting my social media usage to 3 times a week and trying to read more. Even small things like that, I’m finding, helps keep me balanced and makes tasks a little more manageable.

I try to do the 5-4-3-2-1 exercise: notice five things I can see, four things I can hear, three things I can feel, two things I can smell, and one thing that I can taste (if applicable).

I try to pay attention to what I’m experiencing with each of my senses.

When my mind starts racing, I simply ask myself why is this certain topic stressing me out. Why do I have anxiety about it and can I control this situation. If I can’t find a valid reason, I remind myself that it’s not always the situation, but how I handle it.

Life is a wonderful train that takes you through many ups and downs and sometimes makes you want to throw up. Oftentimes you need to get off at some point where you thin you’ll be happy and other times you might have to get back on because you’ve realized you no longer want to stay. Sometimes you end up right back where you started and sometimes that’s where you need to be.

I usually observe the littlest of things around me. Especially with nature as I’m an artist that looks for inspiration from realistic things. Like today, I saw a ground hog when walking outside.

I stay mindful by writing down my feelings and emotions at the end of the day. It helps with reducing emotional stress, brings clarity to situations, and eases body tension.

Ever since I have started using a calendar to organize my thoughts, goals, and plans throughout the month, I feel so much more accomplished and organized :D

I stay mindful each day by taking a break when I’m feeling stressed. I pause, take a deep breath, and really focus on the breath as I inhale and exhale.

Although I wish to be good every day , I have learned to accept the bad ones and take advantage of the good ones , even if only for 5 mins.

During my shower, I review the day in whole. How did I feel in the morning? Midday? Night? It helps me be aware.

I imagine my feet are rotted in the ground like trees, or if I’m sitting I imagine my whole body being rooted to the ground. I breathe deeply and let my brain wonder where it wants to 🍃
