9. Medicine

Whenever I feel really, unpleasantly restless, I have found that it is good medicine to just start cleaning the house and clearing out old stuff.

Making order and focus in my surroundings tend to gradually pull me back to a feeling of order and focus in my mind.

At the very least, I will feel some sort of accomplishment.

And that actually counts for more than I first thought.

What’s best?

To end the day restless and confused and slightly anxious – but still feeling that you have achieved something that is good for you?

Like, making a nice clean kitchen?

Or creating total breathing space on your hard disk instead of byzantine file clutter that was there before?

Or … feel all that restlessness and confusion and slight anxiety … and just go to bed?
