It was a lazy Sunday and I was at home alone. I had work to catch up, emails to write back, and a recipe to make but somehow I couldn’t stop watching Big Love on HBO Go. Also I couldn’t psychically get up because I was surrounded by my crew, you know, the furry cuddly ones.

Lately I’ve been dealing with some afternoon anxiety, the kind that creeps up on you suddenly when you’re working too hard, multitasking between jobs forgetting to breathe. I’ve always done too much for work, and too little for me, so I’m trying to learn a little bit at a time why it’s really important to take a minute and chill.
Last year after coming to the full realization that life isn’t about purely about work (hard to believe, I still struggle with this) I started to try to make more time for myself, even if it meant 5 minutes of sitting in the quiet section of the studio staring at the wall, while doing some simple breathing exercises. Eventually I started to get to into meditation, where I even participated in a group setting. I started to explore meditation more, and even though I fell off the wagon for a few months, I’m trying to get back on as it was super successful in helping me deal with stress.
