Being Outside

Being Outside

If you're anxious or feeling low, it can be really easy to slowly spend more and more time indoors and at home. We’ve all been there! Some people find the simple act of forcing yourself to get out of the house, whether to a café to people watch or to the park for a walk, can be a good way to change up your mental state by changing the environment you’re in. 

If this is something you really struggle with and it feels like a big step, why not just try to get to the end of your road or give yourself a set amount of time, such as 5 minutes, to stay outside? It may feel tricky, but you may also find that once you’ve made that first step of getting out the house, the times goes by without too much effort. 

I spend so much time worrying what I’ll do when out of the house, what I’ll think about and what I’ll say if there’s someone with me. It can get to the point I have panic attacks and dread it. But usually once I’m actually out those things aren’t a problem and it helps me take my mind off of things.
