Sometimes you have to act despite the odds. And despite not feeling like it! Most times the ‘feeling’ will emerge. after you start acting. Sometimes it won’t!
What you can do is try! Take rest, And then try again!
It’s your fight and giving up is not an option.
But here’s the thing, you just have to keep going till the going starts to get easier!
Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action.Walter Anderson
it doesn’t diminish anxiety, it accepts that it is and speaks to ways to diminish or lessen the impact. Action, yes that helps and doesn’t have to be major, it can be a small action that can help in stabilization. Action can also be internal versus external, depending on the situation. I like to close my eyes for a few seconds and take a couple of deep breaths. Then, I can tackle the world. I also tell myself that things could always be worse and to use what is leading toward the anxiety path as a starting point and move forward from there.
One step, then one more… then the next, pretty soon the voice in your head has calmed down and it’s actually become an ally rather than an opponent!
