Listen to Episode 8 on my Breaker.audio page!
This podcast is about calming anxiety and taking control of your life. If this process doesn’t work for you, please continue researching for one that does. Below is a summary of my anxiety action plan.
Step One: Change your thoughts when you start to feel anxious.
Stay away from ‘What ifs’. Imagining the worst-case scenario doesn’t prepare us, it makes us anxious and scared.
Challenge negative thoughts with positive thoughts.
Stop overthinking. When we overthink, we live too little.
Step Two: Write a mantra that resonates with you.
This is the mantra I tell my anxiety: “I RECOGNIZE WHAT IS HAPPENING. MOVE OVER ANXIETY! I CHOOSE TO BE HEALTHY. I AM SAFE. I AM LOVED. I AM OKAY!”
Step Three: Take a break or continue on.
Slow your breathing back to normal and either continue with my task at hand or take a break and focus on something peaceful. Remembering positive experiences where you took control of your life or successfully completed a project really helps to KNOW that you really are okay now and will be okay no matter what happens.
