Whenever my heart feels heavy or restless I know it means I’m not looking after myself, that I’m missing something. I usually start with keeping up with regular prayers, listening to more Islamic education than music. I need to be learning something in those long journeys to work.
This eases a huge part of me but not everything. I then try and respond to my WhatsApp a lot better, meet with friends because for me, it’s my relationships with people that keep me sane. As well as dancing and singing to music while I’m doing the cleaning always perks me up.
