Like "Big giant hugs!! I know it gets to be a tiresome trek because there is not an end to it. It is there 24/7 and that is something many people don't realize. I wish I could give you a magic answer, but I'm afraid I don't have one. The thing that helps me most with feelings of being overwhelmed or anxious about situations is doing something I really enjoy. For me, that generally involves time to commune with nature, on my own, in a place of wonder. I always feel so much better after I do that. The other thing that helps me is to express my feelings either in words or in art. Both give me a safe outlet to just be real. No one else has to receive it or see it, I can burn it when I am done, which I often do if it's a very negative view of things. It is a release for me. The only thing I have found to really help me with my dawn phenomenon is fasting. I know it's not for everyone, but it is the only way I can get my liver under control. The longer I fast the better the results. The more consistent I fast the better the results. It is a challenge for me sometimes, specially with lots of stress because I eat when I am stressed. Knowing it helps me curb it, but sometimes I am not on top of it and it gets away from me. I know it's easy to say to focus on the good stuff. But it's not always easy to do. Perhaps a little less of feeling the need to be perfect might help? "
