This time the topic is ANXIETY!
So from me to you…
“I’ve been having a lot of anxiety lately. Can you give me some suggestions please?”
Anxiety can be a complex issue. Let me address the basics first. Is this anxiety about something specific and upcoming or is this a generalized anxiety that is triggered in multiple places and scenarios? There is a difference both in the protocols and in the mechanism of onset for each of those conditions.
This is important because anxiety about something new and upcoming is normal. There is a function in our brains, often referred to as the old or reptilian brain, that associates anything new with potential danger. It is a function that kept us safe when we were out as hunters and gatherers. Ultimately as long as this anxiety is also mixed with excitement (like a roller coaster ride) you are probably on the right track.Coaches call this phenomena the amygdala hijack.
If thoughts of this specific new thing are keeping you up at night and causing you some distress then you are most probably envisioning disaster scenarios in your own head. The body always responds to your imagination as if it were real and happening NOW. So imagining chaos causes your body to respond with adrenaline and corticosteriods and chemically produces the state of anxiety. Once the adrenals have fired it takes about 40 minutes for the chemical reaction to dissipate in your body.
Anxiety is a sign to pay attention to what you actually WANT to happen. Here is a great technique to play with. Do this EVERY time you feel anxious:
- Imagine yourself floating up above a time line and go out 15 minutes beyond the SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION of the event about which you thought you were anxious. Turn back to look at now…
If you imagined yourself beyond the successful completion of the event, then you will find your anxiety is gone. You are in control of your own mind… really!
If the anxiety is of a generalized type, please phone or email me as there are specific protocols to follow and they are too complex for me to efficiently answer in a short article.
To Your Health, Wealth and Happiness!
