Don’t Forget to Breathe
The number one thing that is hard to remember when having a bad day is to breathe. And it is what you need the most. It helps to clear your mind. Have you noticed that when you are thinking stressful thoughts that you stop breathing for a moment or your breathing becomes small? I notice that sometimes when driving or when starting off my day when everything is quiet.
This is the time that I make myself take a large or deep breath. It says to my mind and body that it is o.k., that I am o.k.
That things are really not as bad as they seem. That I deserve to have a good day and have good things happen to me. And you deserve to have a good day and good things happen just as well.
It can feel as if you get stuck in sad or stressful feelings for whatever the reason. You don’t have to though. First of all, it is o.k. and maybe healthy to acknowledge how you are feeling. It also is helpful to accept those feelings. Not because you like them or want them, but because it will lessen the strength they may be having on you at the moment.
I Accept my Feelings
Once you accept how you are feeling it gives you a sense of relief. It makes it o.k. for you to feel that way. The worry and anxiety can feel like a battle within yourself. Accepting that you feel like that can help lessen that battle. Be kind and gentle with yourself and what you are going through. What you think and what you feel is important.
You are important. Take the time to do what is best for you. Your body and your mind.
Breathe and say to the world I Can Do This!
