I’ve recently felt really overwhelmed, which always makes the simplest of tasks or activities feel insanely hard to do. Whether it’s meal prep, or texting a friend back, or tidying a room, feeling stressed can make anything feel like moving a mountain. 🏔 I’m using an app called Bloom, which uses CBT practices to create…
