LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Maintaining Sanity with Self Care”

“Sometimes we must reset our direction and take time to sequester for self-care. The spiritual warfare in play at this time is designed to divide and conquer humanity, to stop us from progressing in our planetary ascension and divine mission, plain and simple. Everything in your body organic and inorganic, belongs to you. Don’t forget that, not for one second. The law can be commanded, that your body is fully controlled by your organic higher spiritual consciousness, your personal Christ, if and when you commit to expressing unconditional love as your highest power. I want to impart the hope and optimism of understanding the spiritual power that is available to us now is so immense. As human beings awakening to what’s happening on this planet, the ability to connect to these spiritual aspects is so much more viable. There are massive streams of higher consciousness coding and plasmic light entering our system during this time from the architecture put into place from the Krystal Star Guardian forces from the 360 God Worlds. The higher frequencies and spiritual ascension coding is so much more present, so much more possible, if a human being can stay out of this fear mongering propaganda, that is an aggravated assault against all of us. We need to do everything we can to strengthen our personal immune system with common sense, critical thinking and holistic research, and to stay away from anything that is genetically modified. That includes vaccinations. Anything created in a lab is being weaponized against the human race right now. The message being broadcast out to all of us is all about survival consciousness. We must refuse this victim victimizer survival program that they are attempting to saturate us with day in and day out, and refuse to allow ourselves to sink into despair by feeling the fear code within it. Come back into the observer, come back into center with knowing you are the eternal self. Know you are eternal, you are God Sovereign Free, and that is assured now. There’s no turning back, this ascension process is going to happen, although it may not be what you imagined or expected. The ascension is going to happen for everyone at some point in the future timelines. But the issue is now, we’ve got to walk through this pile of deep shadowy rubbish, this mind control debris and this prison planet game and spiritual warfare that is being played out. This is the rougher part that we’re seeing play out in the world.”

Dear ES Family,

It is clear to all of us in the spiritual community that these are unprecedented times in which we entered a new era in 2020. Everything we have known is progressing into something else, an entirely new game on a new playing field, the reality is being reset in the fields as we speak. A new era in which we can observe the metaphysical layers of spiritual warfare begin to manifest itself into the physical world, and that seeing, feeling and knowing that this warfare is happening in real time, is extremely disturbing and sometimes, emotionally painful and depressing. There is a saying, those that know cannot sleep, and it is a part of the energetic burden that this spiritual family shares as we watch the unraveling of the controller matrix together. Since last December, there was an event that occurred during the week of the Galactic node alignment, in which Guardian teams made note to communicate – “The Time is Now!” It can take some time to understand what the heck is happening when the worlds seem to part in the sky, and these cryptic messages from the fieldwork actually reveal themselves to be truer than true, as this was the pre-warning that we were going into spiritual battle for the end game. The end game is the timeline of the singularity into zero point which is the organic timeline of Disclosure as it is made to the earthly inhabitants. This is the God creator plan, and no matter what kind of opposition, resistance and entity tantrums rise to destroy the world for people to become consumed in the forces of chaos and violence, the infinite Creator has a benevolent plan for all, and there is no stopping it.

Yet, inside the maelstrom of the forces of tyranny and fear, the very fabric of this reality is unraveling at the seams in so we can look behind the veils. Like seeing behind the curtain hiding the Wizard of Oz, the process of witnessing and seeing the truth behind these events as it must make itself known – to each of us in its own way. This means many of us are here to witness these structures of anti-human control, to observe the actions of ancestral past and track the origins and causal events of how humanity arrived to this point of utter insanity and destruction. Despite social engineering, mind control and the rigged system of debt enslavement and consciousness slavery, how did we allow the anti-human blood sacrifice structure propped up by offering the children of earth to these pedophilic monsters actually happen? How did they hide this from us all? How did they get away with this for so long? We all have to make an accounting of how we arrived here to the process of awakening to the truth in what has happened to the human race, and what blinded us into submission to the most heinous lies ever told. Thus, waking up to see this for the first time can be emotionally devastating, and very difficult to grapple in that this has been happening on the earth for a very long time. Our reality has been a lie, a complete sham, devised as an anti-human torture chamber used as a playground for billionaire elites possessed by off planet entities. What can we learn from this revelation, and what will be our takeaway? We must awaken to co-create a new world that is loving and reverent to all life and humanity.

During these tumultuous times, there is a necessity to be the compassionate witness and hold space for the deconstruction of the corrupt system as we view the rotten core of its insides. It can be painful as heck to look at that rotten core. From the place of overwhelm things can appear to be without purpose. However, nothing truly positive, loving and humanitarian can be built upon the foundation of structures built upon rotten filth and depraved intentions. This is exactly why we need to see it and know we cannot feed into those infiltrated structures, but learn how to become a productive and awakened person that is spiritually strong and can help bring about the shift in awareness, by holding the space needed for others in the future. There will come a day when more humans will know what we know, who will rise to help guide these awakening groups? If you are a facilitator for groups at this time, how can you bring disclosure to your smaller groups to help them prepare for the time when the larger scale of disclosure comes? If we cannot face the corruption of the medical industry as the delivery system of eugenics and mind control, what happens when we are made aware of the heinous crimes of baby and child sacrifice? The heart of humanity needs trustworthy spiritual warriors who work for God and no one else.

Thus, I’d like to bring more clarity upon current events happening around us that are radically increasing the forces of chaos in the field and that for some people at this time, the Controllers strategy is to exert another level of internal and external pressures to stress us out into mass survival fears. This means that people more easily lose their center point, lose their inner balance, and then succumb to an array of ego coping mechanisms, and even control oriented tantrums. Maybe we feel sad or depressed on some days as empaths when we are feeling the despair and depression of the collective consciousness. Or it saddens us when looking at human misery and suffering and know that it does not have to be this way. Please notice and pay attention to control oriented tantrums, in your mind and others, when the ego gets unruly and starts to throw all of these curveballs into your mind. This is the content of the subconscious mind and pain body aspects that need to be witnessed, and ultimately will need to be addressed with some unconditional love, compassion and empathy along with the ethical practical qualities of the spirits of Christos.

The outer world is undergoing an aggressive psychological operation by those who are desperate to control the masses and maintain the 3D narrative to keep their power over the public. We are in unprecedented times, and from the position of expanding consciousness, becoming more self-aware and self-responsible, we believe it is important to be able to perceive what we are being exposed to in real time. This is so we are able to take better care of ourselves and our families as possible. This means we have to dive into some research with unpleasant and ugly truths, and notice the many brazen lies staring us in the face. We can no longer brush it under the rug, or pretend it’s not there, we have to become emotionally mature and spiritually mature enough to be willing to face evidence, facts, and at times be willing to process and feel pain, when we realize that we have been lied to by those who have been running the power structures in this world. Who do these people work for, who pays them?

As a result of the outer pressures, I have noticed that some newer members can reach saturation point with the ES materials, and they reach their tipping point. They cannot take any more input because the body, mind and emotional body has reached its limits of processing information in that moment. This is what I would like to direct your attention towards, the absolute necessity of being self-aware in so to listen to your body, to observe your reactions, so that you learn how to best take care of yourself. That you realize in the mass chaos we must learn how to hold peace and calm and knowing our inner calm is not dependent on outer circumstances. We all must learn to hold inner calm in the midst of the storm, our job is to take care of ourselves and this concept is key to maintaining your sanity, holding the balance point in your lives and not breaking under the stress and pressure.

Pay attention to your reactions, and realize your goal is to form patient well thought out responses, and to refrain from uncontrolled impulses, snap judgments, emotional reactions, to the level where you lose centering. When and if this happens, and you are reaching a tipping point, this means you must figure out what you personally need to take care of yourself, and this is different to each unique individual. Sometimes we need a break, we need distance, we need the space to process, and your job in taking good care of yourself is to do that at the moment you realize your body, your consciousness is talking to you, and telling you that it cannot take any more input right now, let me rest, let me integrate.

Sometimes people join the community and feel like they have to catch up and burn through the material quickly, running through meditations without a lot of reflection on deeper meanings and staying awake to the personal shifts occurring. Integration means we allow the space, we allow the time necessary to process and integrate, in such way we do not saturate ourselves with information that we are not yet equipped to handle. The information in ES has a frequency, and this has repercussions on our lives, we must prepare for this with intending to build a strong foundation, knowing we must clear our negative ego and pain body from auto pilot reactions, and with unconditional love, acceptance and compassion for ourselves, learning to observe, discern, accept and then get into neutral.

A strong spiritual foundation and core self is what is needed. When you are mentally and emotionally stronger you will have much less fear, this is a state of being when there is no fear controlling you. Instead the awareness is placed upon the inner reality first, the ability to hold neutral observer, and from this place of observer, your HSP and intuition will be much, much more accurate and stronger. When we are fearless in our connection with God-Source, our senses will not betray us. When we feel fear, we will see everything from the place of fear, and all of our perceptions will be clouded and misguided. Obviously instinctual fear can be the alarm we need to inform us we sense danger or bodily harm and need to get out of the way, but this is not the kind of fear I am talking about. It is the everyday anxiety or mental fixations which control the perception of most people on this planet. The goal is to shift out of fear and into observer mode and to work this muscle every day in order to get spiritually stronger. This alone will greatly increase your spiritual strength and clarity. It is well worth it to do the shadow clearing, the negative ego clearing work to get this beautiful spiritual reward of more inner clarity and coherent thinking. Remember fear weakens us in every way, thus to strengthen your inner spiritual power, we must clear fear and know the point of all power is in the neutral position. From the neutral space then you make your decisions whether to act or not to act, such as whether or not to be in civil disobedience to the tyranny of immoral actions or laws.

Coming back into this moment and understanding that as we hold the space in present moment and we understand the truth of who and what we truly are, as the eternal God self. We are the eternal diamond sun krystic people that have returned to witness this final conflict and to really take the accounting. Returning things back through cosmic justice into the natural laws through the compassionate witness and embodiment of the Avatar Christos. We’re enduring the most difficult stages of witnessing that spiritual warfare against the Christos consciousness as it is happening on planet Earth. While many of our brothers and sisters on this planet remain asleep to this larger agenda. That is a burden, but it is also a privilege. Knowing the value of that information and higher awareness, while being able to hold calm even in the presence of chaos, of others pain, of watching other people suffer. That is the most challenging part of these times.

I think that is important as well, is seeing the hype in motion, seeing the fear and classifications being used as a weapon, and seeing the brazen use of propaganda. The message being broadcast out to all of us is all about survival consciousness. This is the Achilles heel of where they get humans in the fear bondage loop, this is where they torment the human race by believing in the manufacturing of scarcity, and we must refuse it. We must refuse this victim victimizer survival program that they are attempting to saturate us with day in and day out, and refuse to allow ourselves to sink into despair by feeling the fear code within it. This is a survival consciousness and suicide code being spread into the world to spiritually oppress the masses and it’s important for us to do our best to stay out of that low vibration as much as possible. Come back into the observer, come back into center with knowing you are the eternal self. Know you are eternal, you are God Sovereign Free, and that is assured now. There’s no turning back, this ascension process is going to happen, although it may not be what you imagined or expected. The ascension is going to happen for everyone at some point in the future timelines. But the issue is now, we’ve got to walk through this pile of deep shadowy rubbish, this mind control debris and this prison planet game and spiritual warfare that is being played out. This is the rougher part that we’re seeing play out in the world.

I just want to make the point, how profound shadow work actually is and how important it is for all of us to recognize inner violence and clear the shadow selves. This inner work never stops. It doesn’t stop for me either. We all have to monitor and assess our behaviors, our reactions and our thoughts, to see what we put out into the world and set into energetic motion. As long as we do that self-observation and honest assessment, this is a supreme protector of our consciousness and our light body. Our organic higher heart consciousness of the inner spirit, this cannot be assimilated into AI. That’s another very important thing to understand, the negative ego frequencies can be easily assimilated into AI. When we’re using the negative ego as a means to process the outer reality, it gets assimilated into the AI. Holding the now moment presence, holding self-awareness, being consecrated and dedicated to this higher ethical system of the Kryst-Krystallah of the cosmic sovereign Law of One. Those loving principles guiding our lives and our lifestyle, is a supreme protector of the sacred crystal heart. That doesn’t mean we give up critical thinking and assessing our surroundings, we still need common sense in navigating the weaponization of people or things that are used as dark portals around us. It’s not pleasant to witness, but it is necessary to be aware that this is an anti-christ agenda, because this is factual, and this is happening globally.

I want to help our group understand why the mind control transmission works so well. Why is the mind control so effective in so many of the people around us? To the point where we’re living in the theater of the absurd. We can barely believe the surreal nature of what’s happening in the world at large and how they’re getting away with this charade. But when you understand the negative ego and the unhealed shadow body in a group consciousness easily digresses into mob hysteria, and how that shadow body can be assimilated into AI, then it really starts to make sense. The unintegrated shadow parts in this unstable and chaotic terrain lends to ascension madness. Because really freeing ourselves from this mind control transmission, is the real shadow clearing work. Really coming into the sacred crystal heart of loving kindness and compassion, is where we can feel our organic being and know that organic being. Know that we can access that zero-point connection with God-Source if we can maintain our inner stillness. Be Still and know you are with God. We can maintain our spiritual power in the now presence, even through all of this chaos and madness. Just breathing and being. Going through it, walking purposefully forward. It is what it is. Just show up, stay calm, pay attention and do the best you can in the moment, it is enough.

Many times, this ability to be fully present and aware in the moment overcomes the resistance that they’re trying to send to stop or derail your progress. But I do believe that we must stay alert to these kinds of dark portal people and organizations. To not give traumatized, scattered, broken people that are in a lot of pain power over decision making in your life, we cannot give insane and broken people power or authority over our decisions. We cannot allow fear based people to derail our spiritual progress or let them take over the direction of our projects. This is where we have to access bravery and courage to step up to that level of self-responsibility and personal integrity of actions, and have that healthy boundary. Know where that boundary is for you when you interact with others that are still asleep and enforcing immoral or tyrannical actions. It is very important that we continue our spiritual work in the world with the emphasis on individuality, personal autonomy and self-sovereignty by seeking the nature of truth above all. That we continue on this path of truth seeking to the best of our ability, taking care of ourselves and whatever else to continue to gain our personal strength, because we have an ebb and flow in showing up for the Christos mission. Sometimes we must reset our direction and take time to sequester for self-care. The spiritual warfare in play at this time is designed to divide and conquer humanity, to stop us from progressing in our planetary ascension and divine mission, plain and simple.

Everything in your body organic and inorganic, belongs to you. Don’t forget that, not for one second. The law can be commanded, that your body is fully controlled by your organic higher spiritual consciousness, your personal Christ, if and when you commit to expressing unconditional love as your highest power.

I want to impart the hope and optimism of understanding the spiritual power that is available to us now is so immense. As human beings awakening to what’s happening on this planet, the ability to connect to these spiritual aspects is so much more viable. There are massive streams of higher consciousness coding and plasmic light entering our system during this time from the architecture put into place from the Krystal Star Guardian forces from the 360 God Worlds. The higher frequencies and spiritual ascension coding is so much more present, so much more possible, if a human being can stay out of this fear mongering propaganda, that is an aggravated assault against all of us. We need to do everything we can to strengthen our personal immune system with common sense, critical thinking and holistic research, and to stay away from anything that is genetically modified. That includes vaccinations. Anything created in a lab is being weaponized against the human race right now. Understanding that to the best of our ability, we are being guided to make alterations in how we interact with the world at large. More of humanity is waking up to understand these larger agendas and the reasons behind them. I do believe we have the incredible spiritual support from the Krystal Star Guardian forces to enact the divine plan of the infinite Creator, to help benevolently guide us through that process. This is the time to heal our inner female spiritual links through moments of stillness, listening and asking the questions of our inner spirit and God-Source to help us navigate the minefield that is the 3D controlled narrative on the Earth at this time.

Peace be in your mind, body and spirit.

Much love and GSF,

Lisa

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “How To Effectively Cope With Your COVID-19 Anxiety”

As 2020 gets crazier and crazier, emotional self-care is getting more and more important. A lot of people, especially the “plugged-in” types who like to pay close attention to what’s going on in the world, are getting into some looping stress patterns over the COVID-19 pandemic that are unnecessary, unhealthy, and unhelpful.

It’s an understandable web to get tangled in; there are all these alarming news stories and statistics pouring in every single day, many of which speak of dangers which may pose a direct threat to the lives and livelihoods of ourselves and our loved ones. Some people spend hours online combing through all the latest information they can find about this thing, and as they’re doing this a tremendous amount of stress builds up in the background of their experience, ultimately culminating in depression, panic attacks, angry outbursts, substance abuse or other unpleasantness.

You see strategies for coping with this increasingly common problem everywhere online, from common healthy stress management techniques like deep breathing and meditation, to escapist claims that the virus doesn’t pose any real danger, to many people simply unplugging from their news feeds altogether. What people aren’t talking about nearly enough, in my opinion, is the simple yet highly effective practice of consciously feeling your feelings.

You wouldn’t think “feel your feelings” is something that needs to be said; it sounds not just like common sense, but like something that happens automatically without your intention or permission. We’ve all experienced emotions we’d prefer not to experience if given the choice, so we assume emotion arises unbidden like a force of nature.

While that can certainly be true, a tremendous range of our emotional spectrum is often blotted out by a basic lack of emotional attentiveness. Our culture tends to encourage us to put all but our loudest emotions on the back burner and focus on other matters, and Covid-19 happens to feed into that dynamic especially well by giving us a bunch of sparkly news headlines and statistics to focus on while this low-level background anxiety slowly builds unnoticed.

Feelings need to be felt. Not acted out on other people, but felt. They’re like small children; if you just give them a cuddle, let them cry and listen to their grievances they feel better in a few minutes, but if you deprive them of attention they’ll start acting out to get it.

At some point between childhood and adulthood, most of us consciously created strategies to stop our feelings from coming up unbidden. At some point, crying in front of your peers became embarrassing and you learned how to stop it from happening. Most of us never thought to take down those defences after they were installed. Some of us have never even re-learned how to cry again. Letting your feelings flow again will take a conscious effort from most of us.

No matter how much mantra repetition, deep breathing or positive affirmations you do, unless you’ve felt those feelings all the way through you’re just wallpapering over the actual issue. A huge percentage of the anxiety that people are currently experiencing is just a big backlog of feelings that need to be felt.

For some of you, just reminding you of that will be enough. Put down the phone and quietly meditate on it until it bubbles up. Hold your feelings like they’re a little baby newborn. Let them happen until they’re all the way done.

Others might need to try out some different strategies. Here are some of mine.

First, I always check in with my body. Am I clenching anything? Hands, bum, tummy, forehead, jaw? What else is happening? Is there background nausea, or a lump in my throat, or is my heart thumping too hard? I investigate. Close your eyes now and try it with me. Scan around for a few minutes.

Try tapping around with the tips of your fingers on one hand of the areas that you identified are tight. You’ll find spots that are a little bit sore. They feel like a light bruise. Tap on those spots for a little longer until they release. Once you’ve done that, let your fingers tap round your body and find other tight spots. Do this for at least a few minutes.

As you’re doing this, the loud buzz of anxiety releases and the actual root feelings become more clear. Sometimes all you have to do is feel them. You will probably feel embarrassed to feel them. That’s just one of the layers of defence you put in all those years ago. If it feels stuck, use your theater improv skills to exaggerate and try some feelings on until you find the source feeling. Feel them all the way through. Sometimes they feel their way to the other side, oftentimes they end abruptly with a burp, the shakes, a yawn or some other release.

If that doesn’t work, I usually hop up and do a very easy qi gong sequence a dear friend of mine taught me years ago. I think any kind of repetitive energy movement would do though. Basically I do the same movement over and over again with my eyes closed. Once the energy is moving around the body I can sense areas of blockage. I just keep looking at them until I’ve fully seen all the parts of it and then it releases, usually by a big expression of feeling like a roar or something, that usually ends in dry retching.

I know I’m done when I’m at zero again. I don’t stop until I feel totally at peace. I think that’s important to note because some people really get off on having big feelings and having their big feelings all over everyone else. Sometimes people want other people to “own” their feelings. Rather than feeling them, they try to make other people feel them by proxy. They’re usually referred to as drama queens.

The point is to release the feelings so your natural peaceful zero point can shine through again. You are the sky, the feelings are weather. Identifying as the weather will mean you are invested in keeping the weather going. Identifying as the feeling will mean you will be invested in keeping the feeling going. Set the intention to let it speak to you, and then let it pass. That’s where health is.

A lot of people are saying that the fear of the coronavirus is more damaging than the virus itself. I think that’s true, but not in the way they mean it. They’re often trying to say that the coronavirus itself a nothingburger and the fear is being used to manipulate us. I think the virus is a real thing, and also our fear will be used by ourselves and others to manipulate us. We need to clear a path to inspiration by feeling through our feelings and getting back to zero as often as possible. This will help us in the big picture by seeing what’s happening and responding with grace, and in the micro by keeping our immune systems in full relaxed readiness and not tangled up, tripping over itself, fighting ghosts and in panic-mode.

Do the internal work and the external work will follow. This is how we save ourselves.

‘NAVIGATING TUMULTUOUS WATERS’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone: “2020 Is Going To Get Much Crazier — Prioritize Your Mental Health”

As I said back in November, things are going to get weirder and weirder throughout the foreseeable future. We’re coming to a point in history where the only reliable pattern is the disintegration of patterns, and 2020 has come storming out of its corner swinging for the fences working to establish this pattern with extreme aggression. We’re not going to hit a point of stability or normality this year, we’re going to see things get crazier and crazier and crazier. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know it’s going to be nuts.

In such an environment, it’s going to be absolutely essential to take exceptional care of your psychological health if you want to remain engaged with what’s going on in the world in a positive way.

And I do mean exceptional. Whatever you’re doing now, do more. Start cultivating new habits to keep yourself lucid and serene, and start now before things get super crazy. Work out your issues with your family and with yourself. Remember to move your body in ways that feel good to you. Carve out some time out each day for just being quiet with yourself. Notice the beauty around you. Give cuddles, get cuddles. Take a shower and sing your heart out. Feel your feet on the floor, nestle your bum into your chair and listen to yourself breath like it’s a song on the radio. Yawn. Belch. Stretch. Roar. Put on some loud music and rock out. Whatever you know works for you to get you out of your head and back in to your body, remember to do it, and remember to do it regularly. Make it habitual.

Be proactive with this rather than reactive; if you wait until you have to react to things going ass-side up later on it’s going to feel like you’re fighting to get your head above water. If you do it now you’ll have the mental space needed to navigate tumultuous waters.

This is what will be necessary if you want to engage with the increasingly frenetic narrative matrix in the future. The only alternative will be to disengage completely and throw your attention into escapism, or at least away from politics and news. And if you don’t make the cultivation of mental well-being your first and foremost priority you will be forced, in a very unpleasant way, to disengage anyhow.

And honestly this is something all activist types should be doing anyway. Believing you can help the world without doing serious inner work is like believing you can clean the house while covered in raw sewage. You can always spot the political activists who engage without doing any inner work by the chaotic, unskillful and frequently counterproductive form their actions take. They can’t see clearly enough to operate efficaciously, because their vision is clouded with unresolved suffering and conflict. Get in the shower and wash the yuck off yourself before trying to clean the house.

Above all, be gentle with yourself. We got a ways ahead of us, and we need you fresh and feeling good. You won’t be able to help wake the world up if you let the chaos and confusion drag you down. Know when to take a break from the information stream and all the babbling narratives trying to twist your perception of it. Use your tools to distance yourself from the narratives so that you can perceive them objectively. Ground yourself, find your center, then, when you’re ready, wade back in.

No matter how chaotic things get, your ability to navigate that chaos skillfully needs to be your first and foremost priority. Put your mental well-being first, and everything else will fall into place.

Be the peace and harmony you want to see in the world.

MARITSA PATRINOS: “15 Easy Things You Can Do That Will Help When You Feel Like Shit”

maritsa-patrinos-art

1. Get a drink of water.

Get a drink of water.

You could be dehydrated! Your body needs water. Not juice, soda, or alcohol — get a tall glass of water and make yourself drink all of it.

2. Make your bed.

When you have a lot to do and it feels overwhelming, making your bed can be the first step in getting your life on track. It will also (hopefully) discourage you from getting back into it.

3. Take a shower.

Take a shower.

Life feels different when you’re clean! And it can give you a burst of energy if you’re feeling lethargic. Wash your hair and give yourself a head massage.

4. Have a snack — not junk food!

Did you eat enough today? It’s super tempting to eat junk food when you feel like crap. If you don’t feel like making a whole meal, maybe eat just a piece of fruit; something you can burn throughout the day and not in a burst of five minutes.

5. Take a walk.

6. Change your clothes.

Even if you aren’t going to leave the house today, put on real clothes. Or, if you’ve been wearing the same uncomfortable clothes all day and feel restless, change into your sleepy clothes and slippers and relax.

7. Change your environment.

Change your environment.

Staring at the same four walls day after day can be drudging. Can you work from a cafe, a library, or a friend’s house? If you can add going somewhere to the list of things you did today, you may feel more accomplished.

8. Talk to someone, not on the internet — it can be about anything.

If you don’t feel like talking through your troubles, that’s OK. Visit a friend, talk to them about a movie you saw. Call your mom and see how she’s doing.

9. Dance to an upbeat guilty pleasure song.

Dance to an upbeat guilty pleasure song.

NOT ELLIOT SMITH! Pick something high energy and bump it. Dance like a rock star for one song to get your blood pumping again.

10. Get some exercise.

Do some cardio, work up a sweat. If you don’t have the time for a whole workout, look up a sun salutation on YouTube and stretch for as long as you have time. Do some push-ups or sit-ups at your desk.

11. Accomplish something — even if it’s something tiny.

Accomplish something — even if it's something tiny.

Do you need to grab some groceries? Schedule a doctor’s appointment? Reply to an email? If you can’t get to the big stuff on your list, focus on the small stuff, and don’t forget to congratulate yourself for getting something done.

12. Hug an animal.

If you don’t have a pet, can you visit a friend’s? Or can you go to an animal shelter?

13. Make a “done” list instead of a “to-do” list.

Make a "done" list instead of a "to-do" list.

Instead of overwhelming yourself right now, start feeling better about what you did get done. You can add “brushed teeth,” “washed dishes,” or “picked out an outfit” to your list. It doesn’t matter how small the task, prove to yourself that you’re effectual.

14. Watch a YouTube video that always makes you laugh.

I personally recommend this one.

15. Give yourself permission to feel shitty.

Give yourself permission to feel shitty.

You’re allowed to have a shitty day, and you don’t have to fix it all right now. If you try to fix it and it doesn’t work, that doesn’t mean it’s hopeless. Give yourself the time and space you need to feel what you’re feeling.
