We live, breathe, travel, eat and communicate fast. Everything is so hectic. Sometimes we can get under so much pressure that all of this beauty of life may just lose sense for us.

Schedules, deadlines, relationships. Work, home, friends, family, significant others.

How to take care of all of this at once. Can you?

When the above happens, life can get really lonely and overwhelming. We all experience it at some point. Even the best of us get caught up in emotions, unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So how do you know you need emotional support? 

  • You have started to act differently, and you hear it from your friends, 

  • You feel odd and less like yourself,

  • You often feel angry, anxious and you become moody,

  • You isolate yourself from other people and feel better alone,

  • You poorly take care of yourself and don’t think you matter that much,

  • You feel hopeless and are overwhelmed by everyday situations and other people.

If this happens, don’t let it block you. In the modern world, it’s very common not to feel supported as you’d like. Every one of us is in a rush and this context matters. It’s just how it is, and you need to take care of yourself properly even if other people, for some reason, are not there for you. Maybe it’s temporary. And of course, it’s always good to talk with others and clear things up. Especially if it’s someone you consider your beloved and something is bothering you.

But how can you take care of yourself regularly?

  • Be mindful of yourself and your needs (eat healthily, get enough sleep and remain active),

  • Check in with people you consider important in your everyday life (family, friends, coworkers). Also, remember about health check-ins with your doctor or another specialist,

  • Engage with loved ones. Maintain healthy relationships with them. Listen actively to what they need and let them learn how to listen to you and help you),

  • Look for some activities that you will find relaxing. Maybe cooking, reading, yoga, or meditation. Whatever feels good and satisfying for you is worth considering,

  • Go outside. It may be for a short walk or a longer one, but sometimes all we need is to change our surroundings,

  • Knowing those 5 signals mentioned earlier (feeling angry, anxious but also alone, moody, frustrated all the time) might be red flags you need to take care of. Especially when it starts to be overwhelming.

If these suggestions don’t work for you, remember that therapy is always an excellent option to consider. Professional help is nothing terrible, and sometimes it’s the best we can do for ourselves. 

So, if you feel overwhelmed, lost, numb, and simply living your life feels unsatisfying, think about therapy. Don’t be afraid to ask for support. Sometimes it’s just a first step to discovering something new that is missing. And sometimes, it’s just giving something new a try. Why not now? Why not at all?
