We all have times when we lose our mojo. Sometimes it goes further than that though. Here are 5 things you can do to get anxiety under control
According to Mind a mental health crisis is
“when you feel your mental health is at breaking point. For example, you might be experiencing:
I do not claim to be an expert in mental health issues but I’ve certainly experienced them.
I would like to bet that if you could change the world and make it a better place you would. Sadly if I asked most people if they could change the world, they would say no.
The thing is you can…
You can change the world for the better just by being the best version of you. It’s not easy though, being the best version of you takes bravery!
You might not think of being your best self as something you need bravery but keep reading, and I’m going to tell you why courage is exactly what it takes.
If there were only one thing, I could teach clients it would be the importance of putting yourself first.
It has been an absolutely CRAZY year for me. I’ve had some very severe lows with the illness and then the death of my beloved Step Father. I’ve also had some incredible highs, mainly due to the accomplishments of my two amazing kids. The roller coaster of my life over the last 12 months has meant my business was put very much on the back burner. A couple of years ago the lows would have probably pushed me into anxiety and depression.
Fear is something you might not think about too often but I guarantee that any problems in your life have some form of fear at their heart. If you want more happiness in your life or even a particular area of your life then take a 30 minute break to watch this video.
If the first thing you think is that you don’t have 30 minutes to watch a video then no wonder you are unhappy….
Maybe you think happiness is something that will happen “later” when you have all of your ducks in a row…
Maybe you think you aren’t worthy of being happy…
I don’t watch the news. There is so much devastation across the world and I prefer to focus on the kindness that exists. My Mum thinks that’s naive of me… maybe you do too and thats ok, its ok to have a different point of view. I’m confident and comfortable enough not to let other peoples opinions affect how I think about myself… most of the time!
I say most of the time because I’m human and sometimes self-doubt crops up… but I have strategies to deal with the gremlins and get back on track.
So although I don’t watch the news it would be virtually impossible not be aware of the events in Orlando… or in the UK about the recent murder of a politician
And every-time I look at Facebook there is someone highlighting other atrocities that are taking place yet don’t get as much cover due to where they are in the world.
You probably already know that there are some things you should stop worrying about but I want you to think about it differently.
I deliberately used the words “should stop worrying” but I actually seriously dislike the word “should”.
When a client tells me “I should do x” my alarm bells go off. In fact I sometimes still catch myself using the should word BUT now I know to stop and think about why I use that word rather than saying something like “I will…” or “I want to…”
I want you to take a moment to think about the power of perspective…
Where you ever told to “stop showing off” when you were a child? Do you find it difficult as an adult to “show up and shine”?
Have you ever thought that the 2 are highly likely to be related? If you have trouble achieving your goals then it will be limiting beliefs holding us back.
I was talking to someone yesterday who was procrastinating about doing what she wanted to do and was more than capable of doing to take her business to the next level. After digging under the surface there was a fear of rejection but mainly it was the belief that “nice girls don’t show off”
