    Kaminari Denki, fictive/imprint alter of the Pluto System. I find that doing something that’s out of your normal routine, like taking a relaxing bath, or treating yourself to something sweet, really helped us. We used to work 50+ hours a week and due to our living situation, we barely saw any of our 900$-ish paychecks. Being on autopilot is really hard. It’s a survival technique for when we need to check out for a bit. And it’s okay, just make sure to do something every now and then to break the cycle and give yourself someone to look forward to! I hope that helps! Take care! —Kaminari

    I agree that gently breaking your routine definitely helps! I also meditate in the morning, before bed, and any time I realize I’m on autopilot. Just taking some deeps breaths and being aware of bodily sensations can help break me out of autopilot sometimes

    Anything that reconnects you to your body! Consider meditation or deep breathing or stretching.
