Shopping vs Anxiety


I finally got out of the apartment today! I went shopping! I hate to admit it, but it had been a while, like a week. Sometimes my mind gets so bogged down thinking of all the things I need to do and then I just decide not to do anything!

I went out today with my friend to Bath & Body Works. (Our favorite store.) Of course, there was a sale, and it was packed! They had the Wallflower plug ins for $2.95, so I couldn’t resist getting a few. I just got 5 of them:

  • Flannel
  • ‘Tis the Season
  • Sun-Dried Linen
  • Limoncello (my favorite!)
  • Warm Vanilla Sugar

Then we went grocery shopping and it felt good to just get out. I know some people take things like that for granted, but I can’t. I’m thankful every time! I know what it’s like to be crippled by anxiety and all you want is to isolate yourself. I try to not to stay in that state too long.

I think something else that helped to get me up and out today was the sun. When it’s dreary during the Winter, it’s harder for me to keep my spirits up sometimes. That’s one reason I love the Summer so much!

Do you like Bath & Body Works too? What are some of your favorite scents?


  1. It’s nice to get our even if it’s just going grocery shopping. I haven’t been out in a bit but I made plans to go out next week which I’m excited for!

I want to hear what you think!
