my first thread here, hope this is allowed... bit of a cop out posting this kinda thing on a conspiracy site
but... over the past couple of days, i've seen some members posts relating how panicked, depressed, paranoid etc, they are at current world
i believe it's important to try to keep a check on some of our thoughts & feelings generated in these times... i think we can get really sucked in,
& bogged down with it all, & can be kinda vulnerable to it cos we don't wanna bury our head in the sand... not everyone, but some, like i say, that
i've noticed - enough anyway, to make me want to take the plunge & post this
so, i just wanna emphasize the obvious - take a bit of time out if it gets a bit too overwhelming - you're not copping out, just giving yourself a
little respite in order to cope better, & recoup some vital energy you may have lost with the anxiety & shock of what's happening
obviously, hobbies are important, to take you out of yourself/the world for a while, therapeutically... i know some people who don't really have any
so yea, art, crafts, music, nature walks etc... anything that distracts your mind enough for a breather
i've mentioned in a couple of my posts to people, a thing called "thought-blocking" - the deliberate stopping of stressful/negative thoughts, with
more pleasing, calming thoughts of your own choosing... a technique which works if you keep at it, & keep at it, whenever your thoughts stray back to
your mind can only focus on one thing at a time, & better to try gain it's control with thoughts YOU want, than stressing the hell out of yourself
for a - sometimes damaging - sustained period of time (too much adrenaline swimming around your system over a long period of time is unhealthy)
anyway, i was in the mood for some levity, & thought i'd chuck what i was in the mood for, over to here & share it with anyone interested - the
fabulous john cleese in the equally fabulous, flowery twats
time out... giggle... i hope...
timeless classic, but i don't have a tv, so i haven't seen it for a some time
wow, i thought everyone would have seen FT before... i'm so pleased to have hooked you in!
you must see the whole lot of em... i promise you won't be disappointed
more great brit sitcoms i highly recommend are - father ted, absolutely fabulous, black's books, spaced, the young ones, bottom, the mighty boosh
(weird but funny)... i'm sure there's more i can't think of right now...
thanks for dropping by
