4th year socio student @Carleton_U. I love coffee, hugs, emergency blankets, and music.
I started to change my viewpoint on myself from being an anxious person to someone who was just experiencing some anxious feelings. And they weren’t that big a deal. It made a huge difference for me.
Dan Harris’ book, 10% Happier, helped me to get over myself and change my perspective. He described the voice in your head as an “asshole”, one that relentlessly spewed useless thoughts and worries for you to get entangled in.
When you make your bed in the morning, you give yourself a small win to build momentum on throughout the rest of the day.
