After reading about how social media increases anxiety, which is not good for PTSD sufferers, at all….I have decided I ‘have’ to implement better self care. Get over my guilt issues about it….and know I am actually worth treating myself well.
I know I have some level of self harm going on, that forces me into almost addictive behaviours, that are not in my best interests. Excessively using social media, excessively helping others, being two of these.
So, being someone who finds routines work better to ensure regular activities, I am going to have a routine.
Monday – Friday, my children are in school.
So, I am no longer opening my laptop in the mornings before school. I will get them ready, take them to school and come home and do some daily needed relaxation, prayer.
1. I will start with some guided muscle relaxation on YouTube that I enjoy.
2. Do some Christian yoga I found on Youtube also, where the woman starts with prayer to Jesus – perfect.
And regardless of the ‘issues’ some right wing Christians have with yoga – I know and believe Jesus will know my heart and that I am only interested in loving Him. I am not a legalistic, unnecessary rules led right wing Christian, as many immature stage 3’ers are. And I know God loves and protects me, from any dark, evil spiritual issues. He is pure love and loves those who love Him.
3. I also will plan set days, I will go out on my new bike. And build up some physical health.
4. Then do some housework stuff around the house each day.
