PS- This is how I soothe MY anxiety
Yes, I, too, have anxiety. It may be less than it used to be, but nonetheless I have it from time to time.
Below is the 4-step hack I use to stop it before it starts.
I’ve gotten so accustomed to feeling GOOD that when I start to feel anxious, I pretty much can say to myself, “Uh oh! Something’s wrong, If you don’t stop this now, it will become a runaway train, and you’ve got shit to do today, girlfriend. Let’s start breathing and break this spell NOW!”
I don’t know about you, but when I feel anxious and I let it take me over, I feel like crap and want to curl up in a ball with blankets all around me.
Those days are over, though.
I’ve stepped up to a level of accountability to where I can no longer indulge this bad feeling that saps my energy, drains my dry of inspiration and renders me pretty much useless in an otherwise productive life where others depend on me to do something so they can do their job!
It’s just not acceptable anymore. So these are the steps I take pronto:
1- As soon as I notice this human emotion start to knock on my door, I answer it. I pay attention to it and ask what it’s trying to say to me. Where am I heading in the wrong direction? What thought did I entertain that got me this far into misery?
2- As soon as I identify the offending thought, I either reverse that thought, meaning I’ll proclaim the opposite of it which is usually the truth (truth is light, lie is heavy) or I simply remember who I am- an infinite being having a human experience.
3- I say things like…
“You know that everything always works out for you.”
“This is just a scary thought, and you know that you won’t let this scary situation get that far.”
“”You know that you can trust your Inner Being to guide you in the right direction at the right time.”
“You know that you can really relax and trust the Universe, right?”
Sometimes the anxiety goes quickly and sometimes it lingers for a while, so if that happens I do step 4:
4- I breathe deeply or go for a walk.
I hope that this helps you to see that anxiety is a human emotion that happens to everybody- even Oprah and Tony Robbins. As long as we are expanding, we will have anxiety because there’s always new, uncharted terrain that we’re forging into and it is unknown.
