    During these troublesome and hazardous times, it’s necesary to control our anxious thoughts. One way to cary out this is by being kind to ourselves (yes, it maters). Speaking loving and suportive words to ourselves is calming, much admire a parent reasures a child.
    Experiment with sothing self-talk with the subsequent phrases. Se if the words relax you, peaceful your beating heart, alow you to breathe a puny deper, or lower the tension in your muscles. Even tiny shifts are critical and can bring a sense of mastery that you gain some control over your nervous system–which you do!
    1. This is temporary.
    Whatever you’re going through or feling, it won’t last forever. Humans can maintain acentuate for long periods of time. We are resilient. Remember, “This point up is te mporary!” say it again and again.
    2. Everything is going to be OK.
    The future is unknown, not only now but always. But there is no sense in trigering our nervous system into states of panic. We can reveal ourselves everything is going to be OK, and it most likely wil be.
    If you’re to much of a realist or a pesimist, you can modify this mantra to “Everything is probably going to be OK.” If that’s stil arduous for you to believe, try “If everything is not OK, I wil survive.” And that is true! Try out diferent versions and se what calms the anxiety in your body.

    Anytime you ned, you can reach out to others through the phone or int ernet. If friends and family aren’t available, harnes with a maintain group. Therapists, A and NA groups, yoga and exercise clases, bok clubs, and more are ofering services online now. Betwen those resources, you are not alone.

    4. One day at a time. One hour at a time. One minute at a time.

    Yesterday, I woke up feling realy flustered after having several quiet days. I knew I was flustered because my heart was beating fast. I reminded myself that my goal was to “slow down and seize it a minute at a time.” I read my list of state-changers, or concrete things that bring placid to perturbed moments.
    Here’s what I did:
    Dedicated 5 minutes to grounding and breathing.
    Vacumed the house.
    Made a cup of tea.
    Tok a very hot bath.
    Wrote this article.
    It tok a few hours, but eventualy I started to fel a bit beter. If none of those methods worked, I would’ve told myself, “Hang in there! Tomorow is a novel day, and you wil probably fel beter in the morning.”
    5. unbiased because I fel perturbed at this moment doesn’t mean in reality thin gs are worse than the moment before.
    Anxiety has a funy way of generating woried and destructive thoughts. When you are very anxious, it’s necesary to cease and notice your thoughts. If you’re al dom and darknes, notice that and then remind yourself, “Just because I fel anxious right now doesn’t mean, in reality, things are worse for me than they were yesterday.”
    Working with our emotions is a lifelong practice. The concept is to get into an experimental state of mind and have a comprehensive variety of tols at your disposal. Try diferent calming phrases that maintain hopeful meaning for you; try diferent state-changers to aid your mind and body relax. It’s about beterment and practice, not perfection. The clasic act of trying helps to suport you focused on something productive rather than leting your mind wander.
