I strongly believe that everyone needs downtime every now and then.
In fact, my counselor advises to take “me time” after a really long day, stressful experience, or during any of those outbursts of anxiety. It helps to ease the mind and distract me.
My issue now is that I’m flirting with that fine line where I crave downtime. I’m addicted to zoning out. To laying on the couch for four hours watching Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix or flipping through Pinterest for hours.
If that sounds awesome … wellll, when your time at home consists of only that and at work you find yourself on Pinterest instead of working…. it becomes an issue. ESPECIALLY since I want to workout more but I have no energy because my brain is zapped from mindlessness! Ugh.
Has anyone else experienced this? What worked to help break your “habit”?
