Just like you should say no to more things you don't really want to do, you should say yes to the things that scare you but that deep down, you want to try. Take that night class. Go to that party where you only know the host. Indulge your urge to take that solo vacation. More than that, though, you should say yes to the things that you would normally avoid due to anxiety. This sounds awful, we know, but it's therapist-approved. While part of self-care is being mindful and avoiding triggers, a lot of the time where anxiety is concerned, avoidance only breeds more anxiety and can build up to the point of interfering with your life. If you never put yourself in a position to see that things will be okay, even if they're uncomfortable in the moment, you never give yourself the chance to learn to live with — and ultimately lessen — your anxiety.

People put their happiest selves forward on social media — relationships, vacations, work brags, etc. — which makes it easy to wind up feeling like shit about your own life. Step away and focus more on the IRL, especially when you’re feeling your mental health drag. Also be aware of how being plugged in creates a ton of inputs (all those different tabs, apps, multiple screens at once, etc.) that can leave you feeling scattered, stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, and unable to enjoy much of anything. So experiment with unplugging regularly (15 minutes before bed, during your commute, for an hour a day, etc.) and see how it makes you feel.

#GoodfulIntentions Week 7 from @annabroges: We all have things we hold onto longer than we should: memories and people, grudges and embarrassments, goals and personas. We let them overstay their welcome because it feels safer than letting them go and finding out what’s left after they're gone. Even old pains and resentments are comforting in their familiarity, less risky than the unknown. But when we make the mistake of holding onto them too tightly, they can seep under our skin and become part of our identities.

This week, ask yourself: what are you holding onto that is no longer serving you? Let go of names that still make your hackles rise and draw unkind words to your lips. Let go of memories that curdle your blood and drag you back to the past. Let go of old goals that fill you with dread more than excitement. Let go of the victories you’ve been living in for so long you’ve forgotten how to take a step forward. And let go of things, too: possessions saturated in memories, clothes made for a past or future you, tools bought with good intentions that are collecting dust.

Don’t let your heart and your life become repositories for things past, because at some point you’ll realize that these things you’ve been hoarding — figuratively and literally — have left no room for the new. You shouldn't fear who am I without these things? You should contemplate who can I become when I’m not longer burdened by their weight?

Your “well” is much like self-care, it’s different for everyone. Ask yourself, “Where do I go to feel nourished and affirmed? To feel understood?” Maybe it’s a friend who always makes you laugh, someone who texts you loving things, a conversation with your mom, being in nature, meditation, prayer, or even watching a video of your adorable baby cousin. Just make sure you know what your well is and that you go there often, using it as a chance to take a moment to breathe and gather your strength.
