Some days, I am completely on track, I meditate, I go throughout my days with a breeze and my vibrations are on super bass but then there are times when there’s so much crap floating around in my mind that I can’t even sleep well and even when I try to meditate it’s hard to focus on that and up goes my anxiety. What I’ve come to find is that because I often deal with things internally , it tends to create a build up of anxiety and eventually worry in regards to how I’m going to tackle all of these problems. I have undiagnosed anxiety disorder or what would be referred to as General Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety disorder is often times hereditary and more prominent in females. I’ve never gone to the doctor and expressed any concern because I wasn’t aware that it was a “thing” until just recently. So, I’m not on any meds or anything to control it and that is primarily because up until just recently, I’ve started to experience the side effects that come along with it.
I’ve definitely had more anxiety attacks and panic attacks just this year more than I’ve had in my entire life. Before this year, I remember having one panic attack in my life and that was around the time that Michael Jackson died (it wasn’t because of Micheal Jackson though lol). Of course, I’ve had anxiety flair ups but I’ve been seeing it happen more and more over the last two years and definitely once I moved to California. With all that I was hit with in the second half of 2017, it was more than enough reason to constantly be worrying and stressing. When I think about it, I’ve always been a worrier throughout my life and definitely a little OCD which I’ve learned usually goes hand and hand with the disorder.
I feel like post college, I had learned to stop worrying after conquering my quarter life crisis and learned the stress was best manageable through changing ones perspective and that worked for a while. Until, I moved across the country. How did I cope and how was I able to pull myself out of it and get back on track? Well that’s what I’m going to help you with. If anyone knows how it feels to be distracted from everything that you set out to do and then to look up and it’s the end of the year, I certainly do.
Not that I’m completed void of the disorder, I certainly still have my days. However, what I’ve learned about these seasons in my life is that it’s not the end of the world. All it takes is some re-grouping and re-prioritzing. There are a couple techniques I’d like to share with you and if you’ve got some time (which I know you do) then I’d suggest watching this week’s YouTube tutorial in which I share best practices in helping you Declutter your mind so that you can see what it is that’s bothering you so much that it has you so unfocused. Nine times out of Ten, it’s things that you want to do and have yet had time to do and so it’s bothering the hell out of you. This tutorial will show you two ways to Declutter Your Mind whether tech savvy or not.
