Just Breathe

Updated: Jul 29, 2020


Have you ever had so much shit to do that you ended up just taking a nap instead? Naps are cool and all (ok, they’re GREAT), but at some point, you realize that you need to be more proactive. Sometimes, you just need to GO. Where exactly? Who knows. Maybe you need to go for a brisk morning run on the cusp of dawn when it’s so quiet, the streets so still, it makes you wonder if you’re still dreaming. Perhaps you need to go on a road trip and just jam out to your music with the windows down, music roaring through your speakers, threatening premature hearing loss but heck, it’ll be worth it. Maybe you need to do something so terrifyingly thrilling that your palms began sweating profusely at the mere thought of it, like traveling abroad by yourself and just figuring it out as you go. I wouldn’t call it running away from your problems, per se. No, it’s not that at all. You know yourself better than anyone else. When you feel that tightness in your chest–like the world is closing in on you, you have so many items on your to-do list that it seems more like a chronicle of untold lies, and you feel like you may even unknowingly forget to breathe at times, you just know. Something’s gotta give.

This awkward pause between Christmas and the New Year can definitely amplify your feels.

On top of all the regular things we tackle on a daily basis, the holiday madness has a tendency to push us past our limits. Some of us may be missing our family, or perhaps our relationship with them is a bit strained. Maybe you’re scrambling to figure out why your bank account is so low–Weren’t all those Christmas gifts on sale?–Or maybe you’re just overwhelmed with life, period, and are preparing to kick off the new year with a bang.

Whatever you’re feeling, it’s understandable–and you’re not alone. Rather than feeling FOMO about your NYE plans or scrambling to create your annual resolutions, use this precious time for you. Allow your mind to relax and trust the process. Have faith that this new year and decade will be the absolute best of your life. Most importantly, BREATHE. You got this. You know you do!
