Last week’s blog focused on the worry/hurry syndrome that a lot of us suffer from. This week I wanted to expand on the benefits of the options you have or might decide to take.
Let’s back track a minute. Do you notice that if you do continue to worry and hurry how highly strung you have become? Do you notice that if you think you don’t have time to take ‘time out’ you only get more of the same? Making the choice to stop and evaluate what’s going on is so beneficial to your sense of well-being even if you don’t achieve calm the first time you try this. The very fact of trying sends messages to the brain that you are the one who is in charge.
Training your brain to form new pathways is essential to reclaiming your well-being. Thoughts get stuck into grooves like a stuck record. Trying something new dislodges the old thought and allows space for a new one. Then the next time you try it, it will become easier and easier.
5 tips to stop the repetition of unwanted behaviour:
- Breathe: slowly and deeply
- Count to 10 to help you concentrate on releasing the tension.
- Loosen up your body by rolling your shoulders forwards and backwards slowly
- Choose something more light hearted to think about. Look at a lovely picture of a tranquil scene or a smiling face or some beautiful flowers
- Take some Rescue Remedy if things are really getting to you.
These are a few of the things I teach my 1-2-1 clients on how to handle stress in their lives on my Wellbeing Coaching packages. Find out more information on how you can work with me to increase your health and wellbeing here.
Whatever method you use, do you notice that this brings a better sense of well-being to you? Did you notice a feeling of calm even for a minute or two? I love to hear about the little things you do to re-establish calm in your life.
