There are some up days…
…and there are some down days.
Could be because of anything.
On down days you need to hold on to something(s).
These provide anchor.
You wedge yourself into something, and are not swept away.
There’s right diet. Leads to good health. You make sure your diet doesn’t stray on a down day. It is likely to if you don’t watch out for its deviation attempt.
Exercise. Get moving. Alone the hormones secreted during exercise should make you feel better.
If your down day is not because of professional issues, get professional (baby)! Meaning, use your profession as an anchor. Dive into it. Deeply. Forget about time.
Look after the well-being of someone you care about.
Pursue something extra-curricular. Again, dive into it.
Travel, if you can.
You can fill in the blanks.
I’ve set up a very basic list.
We’re very basic here.
We don’t believe in sophistication.
We break life down to basics.
We keep things simple.
So, what does the anchor do?
Yes, it stops you from being swept away. Your anchor gives you stability and solidity.
Then, your anchor consumes you. You lose track of time.
What was time, – oh ya – a healer. As time passes, you forget the issue, or the issue dissolves, or dilutes.
You wake up on another day, refreshed, and join the battle where you left off. Issue seems smaller. Your forces are replenished. You fight. You win.
Never forget your anchors. Have them ready. Anytime. Any place.
