I wake up every morning anxious. It's just in my nature I think. Every morning since I can remember I wake up with my mind racing through the 198 things I have to get done that day. Business calls, emails waiting anxiously to be answered while I slept, laundry, grocery shopping, personal correspondence, etc. None of this is overwhelming on its own. None of it is overwhelming bundled together actually. It's just during those first moments from sleep to awake that they bombard and ridicule me.
"You'll never get all of this done."
"Look at what you could have been doing while you were sleeping!"
"You're pretty worthless when it comes to getting things done."
See? They're nasty little thoughts.
But truly, I do tend to set myself up first thing in the morning by feeling overwhelmed.
By the time I take a shower and get dressed I'm fine.
Anybody else get this way? If so (other than meds), how do you make yourself wake up pleasantly? Seriously looking for tips here. Help a sister out.
