Have you ever been so stressed out and anxious about going to the grocery store that you just sit in the car and you cant go in?
That is me every single time i go to the grocery store. Every time i get so anxious and so worked up. The crowds, the people walking around looking lost, people just standing in the way being inconsiderate, then i have to actually do the shopping, wait in the long lines, and spend tons of money on food that only lasts a week.
The best way i have found to deal with my grocery store anxiety is to jam out to music in the car before i go in to the grocery store. I also have meditated before going in just to woosa out and ease my stress and anxiety struggles. I chew gum, i go into the store with headphones in so i can listen to music and just focus on my shopping list; i try and just zone out and get in and get out.
You have to do and find things i life that help make stressful everyday tasks easier. No need to just sit there and be stressed out. Life is long so you might as well find ways to enjoy doing things you essentially don’t enjoy doing at all and that’s what i do.
Today i went grocery shopping, i had my headphones in and i was zoned into my list, not paying anyone in the store any mind. That’s what got me through the 1 hour long shopping trip. It was not until I got on line and was talking to the cashier that I took my headphones out and started interacting with the cashier as i checked out.
