Choosing Health Tribe, I know many of our emotions are running at extremes after the election. I had the most craptastic sleep of my life on Nov 8th (and the 9th wasn’t much better). Change can be scary, especially when you doubt or fear the source of it.
Today, I am going to show you 2 amazing tools you can start using to more easefully manage your stress.
I use these tools EVERY single day as part of my toolset for managing stress and so do many clients of mine. Let’s take the next 30-60 seconds and do them together right now .
1) Start with your breath. Which part of your body is tense? Take a moment and focus your breath either in your low belly or your heart area, whichever feels best for you. Breathe in and out of your nose with your attention on your belly or chest area. Take 2-5 conscious breaths with me.
2) Next ask yourself, “What do you LOVE?” What do you deeply care about? I want you to bring up feelings and images of the things that you care so deeply for that you can’t help but smile and feel better when you think of them. As you’re doing your breathing, laser focus on 1 of these things you love and FEEL that love in your body right now. I’m imagining hugs! Deep, warm, heartfelt hugs from my loved ones. I can feel the hugs and the love they bring to me right now. Ahhh, that feels better.
I hope that this taste of stress resilience coaching was helpful to you. I always love getting your emails and feedback so please, let me know how you are doing and if you want more tips like these.
Sending healthy wishes and a big cyber hug to you!
