It’s safe to say that sleep is an entirely different entity for those struggling with anxiety and/or depression. It’s not easy, its lack or extreme excess can affect all aspects of one’s life, and it can become entirely cyclical, generating more strain, alienation, and physical, mental, and emotional unwellness. Though sleep is something which is an important and central part of our being, it is only one of the key human engagements which anxiety and depression may affect.
When it comes to our own pleasure, who could possibly know more than ourselves?
We tend to sensationalize sex with someone new, imagining it to be sexy, spontaneous, special, romantic, kinky, wild, hot, memorable, or any combination of these.
We must seek to understand our oppressing forces, seek to do so through a lens of self-love and care, and then seek to deconstruct them through acts both small and radical, personal and collective.
Your body is yours and yours alone, remembering that is a tiny form of activism in and of itself.
What aspects of yourself and your actions/achievements deserve celebration? Where can you seek change and/or improvement? What would you like to see more of in March and moving into the rest of your year? What are you ready to let go of?
We love love, don’t you? As a closing to our month about love, we wanted…
ALL love should be celebrated, today and every day. Tell the people in your life that you love them, tell them why, and put a little piece of your heart into all of the special, loving relationships in your life, not just the one that involves romance.
