Its Sunday afternoon and the weekend is nearly behind us. Pangs of anxiety can kick in about Monday morning. It is extremely common for people to experience a spike in anxiety and depressive symptoms on Sundays.
After nearly 10 years of working successfully with clients who have anxiety, here are some helpful tips:
Take yourself off in your mind to a safe place. This can be somewhere that you find particularly calming like a beautiful garden or hillside, sunny beach, or maybe your bedroom or your favourite chair. Practice this with your eyes closed, maybe before sleep or in a quiet place for a few minutes and simply be there in your mind, see what you see in your safe place, hear what you hear, notice smells and tastes etc.. Enjoy the feelings of calm and safe. Its like having an instant holiday!
We breathe subconsciously so consciously taking a breath now and then encourages you to be more in the moment and away from your thoughts. Follow your breath in and be with the sensations in your body as it travels around and follow the breath out. Take 1-3 breaths in this way a few times though out the day and simply notice.
