Hey everyone, how are you?
Today, I am back home after being out for most of the day yesterday.
I am splitting the day into two areas, the first being the gaming time and the second being the art time. As I want to use the morning to relax and get in some self-care. And I am going to do this by getting in some more gaming. I am on a real gaming kick at the moment and it is really helping me to unwind and wake up from fitful sleep. Where I am still tired in the morning and do not always feel as though I am rested. I am playing a game that is action based and am just over half way through it. I am enjoying the story line and the attention to detail in the graphics and design. I get so sucked into the game that I lose all track of time and if I have to go out, like I do today, then I have to set an alarm. So that, I can get to where I need to go on time. I also find that it helps to wake up my imagination, as I found out yesterday in the creative writing group.
In the afternoon, I am meant to be going back to the recovery centre for the art group. Although, I am wary about going because of the noise. Too much noise can get to me and make me feel uncomfortable. I am no longer anxious about going, but I am uncomfortable with how loud it can get there. Also, I struggle with what I want to do in the group and end up getting bored at times. I think I prefer the creative writing group because it is more structured and the way we share our work is very supportive. So honestly, I am in two minds about the art group, but I did not go yesterday, so, I should go this week. If I don’t go then I will be getting on with some writing at home. I will make sure that I turn off the PlayStation and get writing.
I’m also still getting use to my new medication and sleep routine. The first night was good, I managed the ninety minutes without a screen, but I can see it becoming an issue later on, when I am not as motivated. I am hoping that it will continue to go well. Although, I am realistic in knowing that there will be times when I don’t feel like doing the whole sleep hygiene thing. But I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
