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).
