Some Things: Backwards Meditation

Cameron is an illustrator hailing from Ohio. When she’s not drawing, she’s probably very, very quietly having loud thoughts about: queer things, her eventual shop, what to watch next on Netflix, food, names for her future pets, and tumblr.

  1. I’ve had therapists recommend this strategy to me before! The idea is that when anxiety/worries, depression/sadness, whatever is a constant presence in your life you tend to always try to push it away so you can try to live your life. Taking the time to let yourself feel your feelings without telling yourself you should be doing something else or shouldn’t be feeling them at all can actually make it easier to cope at other times during the day. It really is a kind of mindfulness.

    I’m always terrified that I’m not going to be able to stop worrying/moping once I start but it does help sometimes. Thanks for sharing!
