Instead of focusing on what causes anxiety, which will feed OCD and increase obsessive thoughts and compulsions, lets try to hone in on the positive aspects of a new season. The OCD 'bully' hates positive thinking and would rather us crouch in fear and let the beauty of a season pass us by.
Not happening, right? Right!
If getting out more is one of your OCD triggers, start small and opt for short outings. Maybe a walk in your neighborhood or in a local park. Take note of the new growth of tree buds and flowers.
If possible, buy yourself something that coincides with spring.
A pastel nail polish, a light colored tie, colorful sneakers or a bright cap. Let colors lift your mood.
Enjoy the new season and know that you are on the road to being free from OCD.
