Stuck between…


Have you ever found yourself stuck between the devil, deep blue sea and a hard place? This is the feeling when your heart hardly beats, you breathe shallow and your mind is spinning like a top.

It does not matter what brought it on, it just matters that you are there…

It is like you have no idea what to do next… Things are beyond your control…

Anxious

Anxious

Some would say that you have reached a state called anxious.

When you cannot face the world, cannot produce any kind of concentrated effort to achieve a goal of any sort…

Hiding

Hiding

Pretty soon you will start exhibiting physical reactions to this state – Headaches, stomach cramps, nausea and shortness of breath…

Symptoms

Symptoms

Sooooooo…. Let’s try this…

Method:

  • Admit to yourself that you are worried.
  • Limit the time you allow yourself to be worried (e.g.10 minutes).
  • Talk to someone if you can.
  • Manipulate the symptoms (e.g. take deep cleansing breaths).
  • Do something healthy (e.g. take a brisk walk)
  • Reward yourself for any form of relief experienced.

Now that you have stemmed the most immediate symptoms; place yourself in a place where you can start to make a difference (go to your happy place).

Breathe

Breathe

Now you can imagine something soothing, that will help you turn the corner…

Believe

Believe

Notice how much you have progressed and feel the relief…

Relieve

Wow, that was close…

Now do something constructive… (anything…)

Achieve

It will give you the strength to overcome the next influx of bad emotions, energy or inputs…

If this has worked for you, please share this with every man and his dog…

Sharing is caring…
