Feeling anxiety, worry, fear and/or tension?
>for simplicity, i will refer to the fab four above as a/w/f/t.
Pause. Yes, stop what you are doing...... pause.
Feel your body and try to locate where anxiety, worry, fear &/or tension are residing
and what that feels like.
And ask your self - “How is this serving me right now?”
Sometimes these a/w/f/t can propel us forward into positive action and sometimes all it does is make us feel awful, uncomfortable and stuck. If it is the latter for you…
Allow a deep breath to fully enter your body and let it go fully - maybe with a sigh. Let go of tension from your jaw, eyes, belly and anywhere else it doesn’t need to be right now.
What I notice, is there is often a recording in my brain that tells me I must keep hold of this a/w/f/t because if I let it go, something unhelpful or undesirable might happen. Most of the time, this is not the case. A/W/F/T keep us in a state of panic, and ignites our stress response, which disrupts our ability to think straight. Most importantly, it affects our ability to access the relax response, which then leads to a whole host of undesirable things. So my invitation to you today, and throughout these times of uncertainty, is to pause often, and check in - ask yourself “What is really happening? Is this helpful?” And, “What can I do right now that will support my wellness?” or “What sort of thoughts/actions might support others in their wellness?”. And try out the breathe, relax suggestion above.
