Small acts of defiance

When you feel the Beast is pulling at you, do something that will improve your situation even is small ways. Straighten a crooked picture or picking up the laundry off the floor.

The point is to exercise the small bit of agency you do have. One little act of defiance shows that you will not be clamped down. Do anything to weaken the Beast.

The Beast can't stop you from standing up straight - physically. It may want you to lower your head and shoulders. But an upright posture symbolizes resilience in the face of suffering.

The Beast has many forms. The Doom-Anxiety Beast. The Regret Beast, or the Despair Beast.

Physical exertion and cleaning is a superpower to overcome the Beast. A little of either can change the course of your day.

The Beast's presence makes you feel like you can't possibly live until it is gone.

It is a great relief to describe your experience to someone.
