If you know there is an upcoming event or situation that’s likely to trigger a period of intense nervousness, then learning a variety of techniques/things you can do that calm, soothe and help you work through it could be really useful.
Most of us understand that how we choose to talk to others, and the words we use toward/about someone is very important because they can impact what that person feels or how they see themselves. This is much the same when it comes to self-talk and how we choose to speak to ourselves and what we plant as a seed in our own inner thoughts.
Anxiety, stress, depression or grief sometimes would have you believe that the weight of what you are holding is too much to carry, that you will break if you dare to begin to release what sits so heavy on your soul.
Setting aside some time to take care of our physical, mental and emotional health should be an integral part of our lives. Self-care helps us cope with stress and anxiety, it gives us a chance to work through challenging situations and provides a boost to our overall self-esteem. But what if you just don’t have the energy to do it right now? What self-care activities can you do when you feel this way?
