Minimise anxiety: Exercise is self-care with an increased heart rate. Take care of your body, take care of yourself.

Studies have found that exercise can combat depression more effectively than either antidepressants, taken alone or combined with exercise. Getting our bodies moving is not only good for your body, but for your mind as well.

Self-acceptance is to simplify your idea of yourself

Self-acceptance is much more than self-confidence or self-esteem. It stretches further than body positivity, so far that it touches on the divine. Because only when we truly accept ourselves, the good, the bad and the ugly, are we freeing ourselves to become what we were born to be. Only then can we grow into the divine creatures we were envisioned to become.

Anxiety and overwhelm - if you do not minimise them, they will minimise you

Today, I am keeping it real. If you have been following my blog for a while then you will know that I struggle with anxiety. Not in the “I cannot function” type of way, but unfortunately also not in the “I am only quirky at parties” way. Some days I am fine, and then others not so much. Lately, my plate has been overflowing, and my beaker of emotions as well. With all that has been going on in our lives feeling overwhelmed has kind of been inevitable, and I think it is safe to say that I am staring burnout in the face.

Simplify your life: Become part of the 5 am club - own your mornings, elevate your life! [Robin Sharma]

Why perfection increases anxiety, making it the number one enemy of a simple and satisfying life

I am by nature an anxious person. I come from a long line of worriers, and we tend to blow things out of proportion and then freak out because we cannot handle it. Yeah I know, and I am human-enough to admit it. I feel sorry for my husband, and try to hide it from my kids as I do not want to intentionally pass this on to them. I also have insignificant things that bother me, so badly that I cannot really function or pay attention to anything else until it has been fixed. For example, the volume of the radio or television need to be at specific intervals. You cannot have the volume on 11 or 9, it needs to be on 8 or 12 or 15. I don’t care if you cannot hear or if it is too loud, that is where it needs to be. Open cupboard doors. Just close them! Want me off the rails? Have a door bang, or a tap drip, or a window repeatedly creak. You will drive me nuts. I will not label myself as having an anxiety disorder, merely out of fear that the general public will associate people with a few quirks like mine with a severe mental disorder. Yes I do have mild anxiety, but there are people out there who desperately need your help and support, and they need the actual attention.

Simplify your life - Anxiety and perfection - Why the one exaggerates the other, and how perfection is the enemy of progress [Habits of well-being]

The dictionary defines perfection as: “the action or process of improving something until it is faultless”. What the dictionary doesn’t add is that perfection, or the search for perfection, can lead to anxiety and even depression.
