I have a weird thing that whenever I relax I feel bad that I’m not doing anything productive and I panic, what can help?

I don’t know why it so long to get in the habit of just doing things I LIKE. Favorite foods, warm blankets, soft music, and long showers are a few of the things I enjoy, but for a long time I think I was just subconsciously telling myself to “get over it”, “tough people push through”. I’m so glad I’m past that because I had no idea how much of the good side of life I was missing out on.

Today I’m taking a day off. Sort of. Just staying focused on myself and what I need to do. Really helps when you’ve been caught up in things. Nice to space away for a bit.

I lay on the bed for 20 mins and focus in my breathing. Allowing thoughts but not paying attention to them. It doesn't always work but it gives me a little space to take things less seriously.

I was sitting on my couch today, and my son ran up to me, curled up in my lap, and promptly fell asleep. Being able to make him feel safe like that made my day.

I relax by reading the Bible. God has filled my life in a tremendous way. Give him a chance and give your heart to him!

I love listening to music when there is a thunderstorm. I turn on my fairylights and watch that rain patter on my window as some r&b plays in the background.

Work has been making me feel really stressed recently. I just need some positivity and something to help me relax. Any suggestions? I like video games, art, music, beauty-related stuff, etc...

When im stressed, I like to create a relaxing environment, like lighting some candles, playing soft music in the background, and grabbing a soft blanket or pillow, weather Im finishing homework or just reading or drawing. Its also important for me to turn off or put away any electronics containing social media or any other stressful things. 🌿♡

i absolutely don't know what will help me calm down when i have intrusive thoughts or an anxiety attack. i tried listening to music, drawing, watching funny videos etc. talking with people won't work because my anxiety and depression always interfere contradict each other. i'm afraid of the next breakdown.
