Take deep breathes. get cash from atm that split bills. Cut down on coffee. Meditate. Cut down eating outside to cook. And MOST IMPORTANTLY

We are human and has limit. Do one thing at a time.




I recently started behavior modification therapy. At first I thought it was just a gimmick but it really works. I’m using a workbook but doing it with my therapist. I would not be able to do this alone. And of course the meds….


Ativan and therapy

Breath, yoga, noticing I have thoughts and choosing them wisely.

Okay the caffeine thing is big, but somethings sneakily ignored. Try weening off or a lower amount, if you’re like me sleep can be rough if you had anxiety through the day and evening.

So it’s a vicious cycle.

Need caffeine cause can’t sleep.

Can’t sleep because too much caffeine.

I suggest trying to ween off on a slower work week or take some PTO to “reset” your system.

Nature, exercise, yoga, breathing, healthy food, mindless tasks like cooking, cleaning, etc, doing smth for pure pleasure, not goal/reason driven, like massage, dancing, good company etc

Weird idea. Is there a way we could set up like a virtual work room? Like one where we're logged onto something like skype/messenger/Google meet/zoom/ZooRoom/Discord or something where we can all be working at night time, but at least not alone.
