I got up early this morning - but for some reason - and I will investigate this - if it's too early - I go back to bed. I feel if it is before 7am, nope - it's back under the warm covers. But I was awake. Then when I fall back asleep - I go into a deeper sleep - sending me into weird dreams - and I wake up feeling a little disoriented. Why do I do this? I don't know. I know I'm not lazy. This is an old habit.
Well, I have decided I will use self care and self love to figure this out. I don't want to overthink it and overstress about it. But I am curious as to why I don't just get up and use the time to myself. The house is quiet. I can do stuff. I know once I'm up and moving around I feel better. As I nod and write this - I feel - interested in myself. I like that. Lovingly, kindly, and respectfully interested in myself.
That's the way to be! You are YOU! YOU are important. So why not take the time to get to know YOU? The real YOU. The YOU who wants to check things out, improve, heal, love and delight in life. Yes - we all have that person inside of us. Habits form - things happen - and we fall hard on our mental butts. But that's OK. There is a large mental health community out there willing and ready to help out. There are tons of people in the world doing and feeling the same way we are - we just have to open our eyes and ears. We aren't alone!
All right - so I did a podcast:
I also did a little short video and posted it on Instagram:
