Could Self-Isolation Be A…Gift?

I’m on the brink of madness, but I do believe inner-analysis will prove to be the ultimate form of freedom

And it got me thinking…

We all have different things — I like to call them non-negotiables — that we need in order to function properly and feel happy. Those, for me, are strong coffee, vigorous workouts, the completion of at least one work task, and the reading of self-improvement books. Without those non-negotiables inhaled daily, I am on edge. Bitchy, moody and perhaps on the verge of an uncalled-for freakout when I don’t have my routine fix of self-care.

Life is better when we laugh. I write about the importance of mental health & believe our weirdness is what makes us great. https://ashleyalt.substack.com/
