My OCD tendencies make me disorganized and sometimes late. Of course I didn't turn out to be obsessive over organizing or cleanliness. I obsess over stuff like locking the door and making sure the oven is off even if I haven't used it a couple of days. And then there is my health. A little bump on my skin or a headache send my into a tailspin sometimes. If I miss a day of using my juicer I obsess over that too not realizing that all the obsessing is bad for my health! Sometimes I give too much weight to what I eat and not enough to the health of my mind.
I need to spend more time being creative. Aside from my writing I have dropped all the other creative activities I used to enjoy like taking pictures, beading, listening to music, reading and then there's exercising. My daily walks outside have been kyboshed by the freezing temps and I haven't been able to drag myself to a gym or even a mall to walk like I used to.
I need to take just one step. A step toward getting my mind back on track and then my body will follow.
Can anyone relate?
