Survival Mode

April 24, 2017

Staying in bed, feeling warm in the comfort of the morning and the calm before the emotional storm. 

Feeling sleep-stricken when the time calls for productivity.

Escaping into silly movies and television programs that barely serve as a distraction.

Making lists and then lists for your lists. 

Tackling every small, trivial item you can think of. Then writing those on your list so you can cross them right off. 

Talking big and feeling small. 

Talking positively and feeling scared. 
Seeking support and encouragement. 

Reading articles about fortitude, success and dreams. 

Baby steps. Every day, baby steps. 

How does survival mode make you feel?

    when I’m in survival mode, I neglect all the things that help me feel balance – eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep all fall to the wayside. Then it clicks, and I remember, and then quite possibly forget again.

      Which is a pity, because those are all things that help retain normalcy in times of crisis.
