Advice: Freak Out

Holli and I are pros at freaking out. Since we have chosen a nontraditional career path we probably freak out more than your average Joe or Betty. This, in no way, is a bad thing. 

Sometimes a bad hour can turn into a bad day and then into a bad week. A bump in the road can turn into a slump large enough to swallow that car that you can't afford the gas on anymore. Maybe you are having family issues, relationship hiccups, job concerns, or money problems...maybe you are having them all at once. If you are, worrying about not freaking out is just another anxiety on your long list of AHHs! 

So, my advice for this week is to make a date with yourself to properly freak out about all of your worries. Sit down and think about everything you're worried about. Really think about what scares you and what is going wrong. 

I suggest you:
  • Cry
  • Scream
  • Stare blankly at a wall
  • Blare music/ Scream sing to it
  • Forget about your diet
  • Eat some chocolate/junk food
  • Drink some sweet tea or Coke
  • Rip up some paper or tear apart a stress ball
  • Yell profanities
  • Cry a little bit more
  • Take a nap
  • Wake up
  • Then relax
Once you face all of that head on and properly deal with it, calm down and move on.

Don't bottle it up or pretend that you're grand. You aren't. You need to be angry and sad and yell and cuss. You need to be alone and you need to realize that tomorrow is still coming and you need to get ready to be fine with that.

So, just remember, when times get too rough take a moment to go freak out.
