I was hoping that writing about how on edge I've become because of the sensory overload I'm experiencing might help to release some tension... nope. :-P
One thing that it has done is to make me aware of how "on edge" I am right now so that I can at least try to be a bit more calm and relaxed about things... yeah, right.
So... mindfulness. I am jittery and stressed because the world is too loud and too bright and too smelly... and I have not managed to get away to a quiet place for a long time... and it's getting slowly but surely to the point where... where I don't know what.
Mindfulness. I know what is going on, so I can do something about it right? Take a deep breath, let go of the stress. I wish that sort of stuff worked.
Visualize peace maybe...
Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat.
I need to go somewhere very quiet for a day or two, and just lay on the ground looking up at the sky for a few hours at a time... that is what I need. Or maybe just put on headphones and blast trance music all day long... that can be as relaxing as silence sometimes :-)
