I’m back from the business retreat/theme park trip I attended in Orlando. It was so amazing and I got to connect with my friends and business partners which is always amazing.
However, now that I’m home I’ve really been struggling and I feel completely exhausted.
This season of life has shaken me and left me feeling so fragile and frail.
When I feel like this I just want to become a hermit and lock myself away in my house.
Past experiences have taught me that isolating myself is terrible for my mental health and is usually the first step in sliding into depression.
I’ve been making myself leave the house every day but I’ve been using a visualization exercise to fuel myself with good energy and then seal and protect it before I go out.
If you want to try it out I recorded myself walking through this visualization on the podcast.
It basically looks like this:
- Close your eyes and take three deep breaths
- Think about people I love and good thoughts. Imagine feelings of love and safety spreading throughout my body and growing stronger and stronger.
- Once I have a lot of good energy built up I visualize a pink bubble surrounding me and sealing it in. I imagine that no bad feelings can get in and no good feelings can get out.
You can modify this however you need to but this is what has been working for me. I find that being really intentional about how I feel when I leave the house is helping refuel me and I’m slowly starting to feel less exhausted.
Have a great day,
