HOW WE CAN BEAT Anxiety when it Rears It’s unhelpful Head.
Sunday night arrives and the uneasy feeling for the week ahead can begin to surface.
Anxiety can produce an uncontrollable minefield of what ifs and maybe’s as thoughts turn to the future.
Glimpsing the endless to-do list for the week ahead and overthinking microscopic problems makes them appear bigger than they really are. Our minds go into overdrive.
Anxiety is a nervous uncertainty, often lurking when we don’t feel in top form, but there are easy ways we can crush these negative thoughts.
And we want to because anxiety is nobody’s friend.
Enabling our mind and body to bring themselves back into the present helps ease anxious thoughts.
This can be achieved with simple breathing techniques if time and space are limited.
If these are not an issue, Yoga and Pilates are the best companions.
These type of exercises require a clear focus on breathing which allows thoughts and feelings to calm.
Looking after ourselves is always important as it can considerably boost the way we feel.
Sunday’s and Wednesday’s are good days to take time out for us.
Accountability can be a fun and uplifting way to wave goodbye to anxious feelings.
If we challenge negativity and look at situations clearly, in most cases it isn’t quite as difficult as it may appear.
Take action and be in control. What are the top wins for the week? What can we improve on and what are our commitments? Holding ourselves accountable can be a very successful way to work towards our goals.
Being organised is what holds the key.
Schedule the diary and write lists – keeping on track is a huge weight off the shoulders.
Jotting it down helps to bring us control and order.
Finding peace in a frantic world can be challenging at times. These 4 really work.
