Full aromatic overload and a bit lie right down to scent the journey has been a very good strategy to halt the spiral. So, whereas I’m no psychologist, don’t suppose it can work for actual deep melancholy and am not implying that it’s a remedy all; spritzing is certainly one of my greatest coping mechanisms. It’s all the time good to have a plan prepared, and one other in case plan A falls aside. My two fallbacks are grocery procuring and cooking. Each of them take me effectively out of myself, even cooking issues so simple as a melted cheese jaffle are sufficient to take myself out of my head lengthy sufficient to derail the spiral.
