My plan was to set myself up with routines and schedules BEFORE I got a job so that I wouldn’t be overcome with everything i needed to do in the mornings before heading to work.
Well, I thought that I had my routines and schedules down to a science. Boy was I ever wrong!!
This morning was my first day of work and I had to be there for 10am. I was freaking out that I was going to forget something or run out of time to get ready and was spinning in circles like a nut case.
This is when I realized that I REALLY need to have prompts to tell me what to do because my anxiety completely blinds me when I have somewhere to be first thing in the morning.
When I can take my time to get where I need to be then I am completely okay. I don’t forget things like to do yoga after I get off the elliptical. That’s what happened this morning; I was buck naked about to get in the shower and I realized that I forgot to do stretches and weights. Silly me! There was no way I was putting my sweaty clothes back on. Yoga would have to wait until the afternoon.
All this said, it is INCREDIBLE how anxiety can completely blind me. I get into this completely frazzled state and am running around like a lunatic, not actually accomplishing anything!
I know that I am time blind and my anxiety skyrockets when I have somewhere to be. I freak out that I am going to forget something and I have to keep checking the time.
Guess who is going to re-download the app Brili (you can also use 30/30) so that I can stay on track?! Yes, it is for kids – but, let’s face it! I am a grown up child 🙂

I can also get blinded my anxiety! It’s frustrating. I always get up way before I think I need to because rushing is where I get frazzled as well. Glad you sent me the link to your blog! 🙂
Thanks for following! 🙂 Haha yes exactly! I wish I was joking.. right now I get up 2.5 hours before I need to leave. Granted I workout but still… it’s too long 🙈 and I’m also super lucky that my work only starts at 10am
It was great, thanks! Brili is really awesome! Let me know what you think or if you find any other apps like it 🙂
