Question How do you count down the days ?

Instead of counting down the days , everyday b4 I go to sleep I think" its another day closer " to my man coming home. Counting makes me anxious and sad I'd rather count the months.

I use a countdown app, I have it set on months instead of days because for whatever reason it seems like less time. I try not obsess and check it constantly lol

I'm the same as you as we still have 5 years to go and counting days or even months would just depress me. When we get closer I will put it on my countdown app

Counting down the days seems to make time stand still.

My husband and I count down to everything. Birthdays holidays visits....pretty much everything and it makes the time so much faster. You also have to be positive even when you want to cry. It helps.

If you're like us, you can't countdown to an unknown date. Daily thoughts of an outdate would sink me. When I leave visits I say to other visitors "Another week down!". It doesn't matter where they are in their journey, we're all another week down.

I count weeks. They aren't as daunting as days but they are shorter than months. We also count down to special things like right now we are cou ting down to sentencing. I sent him 6 letters with things for him to do for each week. Bible verses look up riddles to solve. Exercise challenges.so every week he opens a new letter and works on the tasks for the week and then sends it back with the answers and his thoughts. Its helping for sure. Plus it was a good distraction for me to make them!!! I need to start working on the next count down project actually!!!

We counted down all holidays and events too... I also counted down tens it helped it was a big deal for example to go from the 180s to 190s....he had this thing once he got to 99 days he was a double digit midget same with under ten days you become a single digit midget. We had a lot of fun with the count downs I had the app too!! It was a joke I had count downs to countdowns!!!!

We have fun with it to. It really helps the days go so much faster for us. We were so excited to get to our year mark. Now we count to visits which is every two weeks and every month almost has a holiday or a birthday until he comes home so that will make it go even faster. I can't believe October is almost half over.

The first half the sentence was in years, after 50% it was by percent, now its double digits, but until I hear a parole decision, I hate to acknowledge double digits, it seems like I will jinx it.
