Four easy checks to do when everything sways in the wrong direction and the horizon is lost at the bottom of the wave… 1- have I a safe place to sleep? Check – yes 2- have I had something to eat and a full belly? Check – yes 3- Have I at least one person who likes me (and being able to contact them in the day, even better)? Check – yes 4- Have I at least one thing good in my day (and when needed remember to pull out checklist of happy things to look for with info such as –sun is shining –cats are in the apartment –had time to go for a run –etc)? Check – yes. All checks positive: whatever my state of mind, this day was better than felt. Great!
