- Lack of organization. My bedroom is a mess because I'm currently in the process cleaning/organizing everything.
- College planning. I'm starting my first year of college in about six weeks (woo!!!), but I'm not really enjoying the whole not-knowing-my-class-schedule thing. I feel so overwhelmed about gathering the dorm room things I need to buy. Ugh, isn't this supposed to be a fun time in my life?!
- Work. Enough said.
- Yesterday, my best friend left for a month long tour of Europe and I haven't been able to communicate with him that much because of the time difference (talk about me being co-dependent). He usually helps me chill out in weird times like these, so I'm missin' the love.
I have tried practically every thing in the book to dissipate the tension. Well, not every single thing, but close to it! Today consisted of me cleaning (see bullet one) since I usually don't feel as stressed when I get something done. When that didn't work, I put my creative mind to work to paint an old jewelry box I can use at school. No luck on that either. Online shopping? Negative results. It wasn't until I meditated for about twenty minutes in complete silence that I started to feel a bit more relaxed.
Tonight, I'm hoping to do a sort of "electronics blackout" where I don't touch my computer, phone, etc. for a couple hours. Maybe settling down with a good novel and lighting some candles will help my mind chill.
Anyone else have any tips for trying to ease a restless mind?
