Hi there my beautiful lovelies! I hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today I will talk to you about soothing anxiety and thus gaining personal power through awareness.
Anxiety is a disorder that affects an individual both physically and mentally, and half of the time it coincides with depression. Dizzy spells, increased heart rate, tremors, upset stomach/nausea and headaches are some examples of physical side effects. Mental triggers such as financial stress, an overwhelming workload, and feelings of being trapped or confined can cause panic attacks or episodes of anxiety that feel almost unbearable. I have dealt with anxiety most of my life, though unaware of the effect it was having on me.
Much of anxiety comes from fear about what might happen in the future. You become nervous about an upcoming medical test or a flight you will be taking. You start feeling anxiety about scenarios that will never happen. It can even lead you to believe that being anxious can keep bad things from occurring The wiring of neurons in the brain cannot distinguish the difference between real or imagined events and reacts the same way toward each.
We’re not always aware of our own anxiety. But the first step in feeling better, is to notice what we’re feeling. Deepen awareness of body and mind by pausing and taking the time make ourselves aware of our anxiety. Anxiety awareness is key to both the individual suffering from the disorder as well as to their loved ones and the surrounding community in order to establish a manageable solution. Antisocial behaviors to the point of isolation indicate an immediate need for treatment.
Our awareness of our anxiety helps us to identify and respond to danger in ‘fight or flight’ mode. It can motivate to us face up to dealing with difficult challenges. The ‘right’ amount of anxiety can help us perform better and stimulate action and creativity.
Awareness of the mental and physical impacts of anxiety and any unprocessed emotions can lead to more clarity about why anxiety is happening. In recognizing your habitual anxiety and moving through the steps to ease it, you can become more relaxed and kinder to yourself. You can process and release your emotions. Perhaps after some time of practice and awareness, you change this inner energy that has been anxiety for so long into something positive, like joy or creativity.
But being aware in this way is tricky. You can’t just think yourself into it. You have to use mindful awareness to get you there. And the way you do that it is by developing a mindfulness practice. Mindful awareness can be accomplished by doing long meditations (15 to 45 minutes; see above YouTube video) and by doing shorter focused-attention exercises (3-10 minutes). When you do this it fires up a different part of your brain. It starts up the part of your brain that brings on soothing and calm. When you are stuck in bottom-up awareness, your brain is doing something else because it is busily trying to think of ways to control the anxiety.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to mygofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATE ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring content to you.
