Life Hacks – How I Fought Anxiety With Lego!
Was this easy? Oh, hell no. But man, am I glad I did.
Sorry…. Back to the LEGO.
I was walking through a mall doing some errands when I felt the shakes of withdrawal from the anxiety medication start.
I started to sweat and my breathing shallowed and the panic set in.
I had no meds with me. I was shaking and ready to fall into a full-blown panic attack when I stepped into the nearest store. I thought, If nothing else, maybe they had a bathroom I could use.
I walked into the store and looked around. At the time, I wasn’t even aware of where I was but I saw a display that said, “build your own mini figure” and started playing.
In building that figure, I calmed down faster than I ever had. Right away, I felt my breathing regulate, felt the tension in my chest start to release, and I felt this overwhelming sense of calm.
What the hell had just happened?!?!
