img_0866As the seasons change and Winter fades to Spring I’ve noticed quite the change in myself. Seasonal depression is something that I have struggled with my whole life and in recent years it has become almost unbearable. Like clockwork though, as soon as daylight savings time hits, my mood begins to lift. As the days get longer and the weather gets better I find myself wanting to do more with my life. Read more, workout more, see new things and overall just be a more productive individual. As I start doing more each day, my anxiety always manages to find it’s way back in and makes me think that I’m still not good enough. This year I want to make sure that I don’t listen to that inner voice because more is good, it gets me out of my comfort zone and shows me that I’m just as capable as I thought. The inner battle between my anxiety and my rational brain has been pretty constant but pushing to see the rational side of things is my number one priority.

If you’re dealing with something similar just know you’re not alone. My best advice for you is to just go for it. Do something spontaneous, go on that adventure, find a new hobby. Even if you’re anxiety is telling you not to, the worst that happens is you fail and as horrible as that sounds, it’s inevitable in life. Why not fail trying something you’ve been dying to get out and do.
