    In what some may call an odd move, I decided to stop seeing my therapist. Like the repetitive 1-on-1 meetings you spoke about, I felt that my reliance on seeing my therapist inhibited my willpower to face my anxieties myself. It felt much easier to ignore the things that were truly bothering me because I felt I could wait to vent to her rather than tackle them head on.

    I also make a commitment for at least one long jog during the week. This usually occurs on Saturdays. Jogging is my muse and I try to indulge in it as often as possible. While it feels difficult to make the time during the work-week, a regular jogging ritual is my next goal.

      I wish I could ritualize exercise! It’s super critical not only for physical but also for mental health. That needs to go on my list as well.
