Frantic energy is just another manifestation of stress.
For me it displays as a need to fidget, an inability to sit still, twitching my toes, rubbing my fingers together, swinging my legs … some days I decide I’m just going to be completely still and force myself not to move. Or there are days where I don’t feel like I can move as I need. They’re the less good days.
Today I’m fidgeting. It’s windy out, I’ve been having nightmares for the last three nights, I have been sleeping like crap … so I’m all keyed up in a not very good way.
On days like this I don’t allow myself to make any decisions, or go shopping. I make sure I have movement and fidget outlets and just ride this crap out. Naps also help.
So does going to sleep at a reasonable hour, which I’m definitely going to try tonight!
