Thanks for all your replies
I need to get out in the countryside more I think. I was feeling a bit 'wired' on Sunday, so we went to our local lake where there are loads of birds (ducks and geese). There is also this little corner where, if you put bird feed, lots of little birds like Robins and Blue Tits come down.
I don't know what it is about birds, but everything else just melts away when I am around them. They make me laugh, and I am fascinated by them as they all have their own personalities (to me anyway!). When I watch birds coming to feed, I could watch them for ages and get lost in that moment - I think that is my form of meditation.
I have been looking around for other work, but to be honest I am not sure what I want to do. My uni course is in psychology and I had been considering a career in clinical psychology which would be more intense work with people experiencing mental health issues. With how I feel at the moment, I am unsure as to whether this is for me, but I DO like working with people in this arena. Maybe it's just *this* particular job that's getting me down because I have to switch to different roles so much of the time and cannot concentrate on the client work. When I am counselling clients I am more relaxed than at any other time during the day.
I feel that I am a very reflective person and self-aware, but like a lot of counsellors we seldom heed our own advice and learn to listen to what our bodies/minds are telling us!
