How to deal with stress and anxiety

How to reduce anxiety and stress.

There are so many daily practices we can put into place to help us reduce anxiety and stress. But because there are so many, this can cause even more stress and anxiety when it comes to deciding which approach is going to resonate and work.

So, take time now to think of what triggers your unwanted behaviour.

For example, I need to answer this email…..but I don’t want to….I’m hungry….I’m bored….I’ll make a cuppa….hmmmm I’ll just have a nibble on a biscuit while the kettle boils……really don’t want to write this email….I might write a terrible response….I’ll have another biscuit….kettle is taking ages to boil….. The above is irrational thinking.

Your mind has been taken over by the child in you/your evil twin or your ego. You can name this part of your brain however you wish. The rational you will be thinking…I’m going to make a cuppa, while the kettle boils I’ll pop some washing on or go to the loo. When I have made my cuppa, I’ll sit and draft the email, check it and hit send. Then I’ll feel better about it. Or something along those lines.

Does this sound familiar?
