10 Things I Had to Give Up to Heal My Anxiety
Benjamin Foley

The biggest thing that helped me to climb the mountain that was my anxiety was to quit my job. I used to work hours upon hours more than I should have. I’d think about work all of the time, even when I was falling asleep.

Now I’m working less than 30 hours per week and it’s magic. It’s given me the time I wanted to do ‘hobby’ jobs, like teaching an art class on the side and learning new things. My life is my own again.

I did a very similar thing to you and chucked most of my stuff out. But I’m still keeping my TV because I watch it mindfully (only putting on things I actually want to watch, no keeping the tv on in the background or watching things just because I’m bored).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
