What I’ve managed, in spite of my body.
Today, my intention to clean up my apartment has been going really well. I started with meditation and journaling, as well as biofeedback and I feel like I’m getting all of my once-insurmountable tasks and coming up with ways that I have to change so that I’m not ever swamped with the tasks that really stress me out because they’re connected to deeply traumatic experiences and every time I wash my meal dishes, I think I can tell myself that I’m going to be really relieved to have done them before they started to pile up.
A few dishes, even cooking dishes, is far more manageable than my using all of the major ones and running out of essentials like plates, bowls (I need to replace the broken ones), and silverware.
I can do this for myself to regulate my overwhelming stress about all of these things.
