Some people need stimulation from ‘other people’ and ‘things’ to be happy (group A) and some people can be happy from just being with themselves (group B). I think we have two in each group in our house. I’m in group B so have just flown out the house for some time to myself, the only message being was that I’ll be back in an hour, but really I could probably benefit from a week on my own (I’m probably overreacting).
My brain is in overload and I’m suffering as a result. I need some time alone; some silent time to recharge.
I’ll post this now in case I read it back later and delete it. It’s important for my journey that I record how I am feeling so that I can also show the steps I took to make things better.
The funny thing is that I felt better after just 20 minutes of walking and my headache miraculously disappeared.
I scanned my list of audiobooks and switched on Rangan Chatterjee’s book The Stress Solution. I’m not listening to every word (as I’m writing this and also trying to look where I am walking), but the words he’s saying are helping.
Someone just walked by me and said ‘morning’ and I said the same back. It’s actually the afternoon, so he’s obviously been out for a while.
I might post an update later, but right now I’m just going to keep walking…
I struggled to save and post this blog so it’s been over an hour now. I’m getting a bit peckish. Time to go back home.
Until next time…
