That’s enough about me. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas but for those people who are struggling let me offer you these things to remember especially if you are going through tough times.

Please remember

Everything can – and will – change.

You’ve overcome challenges before, you will do it again.

Use it as a learning experience.

Sometimes, not getting what you want can be a blessing.

Allow yourself to have fun.

Being kind to yourself is the best medicine.

Other people’s negativity isn’t worth worrying about.

and there is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

and going forward

Things to quit in 2019

Trying to please everyone.

Fearing change.

Living in the past.

Overthinking.

Being afraid to be different.

Sacrificing your happiness for others.

Thinking you’re not good enough.

Thinking you have no purpose.

Anxiety quick tips.

Start Deep-Breathing

If you’re not focused on how to calm your body through slow,          intentional belly-breathing, you’re missing out. Belly-breathing is free, location independent, and easy to implement.

Meditate instead of Medicate

Calm is an inside job. Give yourself the gift of serenity and start the day with ten minutes of solitude and positive energy. Think calm, measured and open-minded, and your daily activities will correspond.

Practice Self-Care

Get a massage, a mani-pedi, or a haircut. Nothing says polished and well-maintained like a sexy, healthy glow.

Eliminate fizzy drinks

That morning cup of coffee can jump start your day and provide warmth and comfort, but anything with high fructose corn syrup and 177 other ingredients will not.

Trim the Fat from Your Budget

Debt will keep you up at night and contribute to feelings of low        self-worth and hopelessness. Take charge of your finances and stop spending on non-essentials.

Track your daily expenses for a week or two and decide where you can cut back. Notice the items you accumulate mindlessly.

Plan a Day Trip

When you spend time in nature, you give your mind and body a much needed break from the hustle and bustle which causes you to Google things like “How to get rid of anxiety” in the first place. Chances are no matter where you live, there’s a serene, interesting and charming place within a couple hours.

Go to Bed Early

This may sound impossible if you’re accustomed to staying up late to catch up on the To-Do list. But this one’s a MUST. Sleep deprivation is a huge anxiety culprit. Inadequate shuteye can amplify the brain’s  anticipatory reactions, upping overall anxiety levels, according to    research

Wake up 15 Minutes Early

Like most anxious people, you’re probably rushing around in the morning and yelling at everyone in your wake, “Hurry up! We’re going to be late!” Go slowly, and set yourself up for a relaxed day ahead. If you start to worry about the To-Do list, take a deep breath and think, There is enough time.

Get Your Lavender On!

Lavender oil has many healing properties and can be used as a natural remedy to reduce anxiety and other nervous conditions. There are many ways to incorporate lavender into your calm tool kit:

Reduce Caffeine, Sugar and Processed Foods From Your Diet

Caffeine can cause heart palpitations if you ingest too much. Caffeine also can trigger panic or anxiety attacks, especially if you have an   anxiety disorder. Hypoglycaemia, or low blood sugar, can also cause       palpitations.

Know that Feelings Are Not Facts

One of the hardest jobs of a hypnotherapist is to convince your      anxious client that the feelings of low self-worth, guilt and shame are not accurate. Negative thoughts cause negative feelings.

Challenge Negative Core Beliefs

Remember that thoughts precede feelings. Negative thoughts lead to negative  emotions, which lead to negative behaviours.

Get Some Accountability

If you’re BFF with Nervous Nellie or Anxious Allen, put your keyed-up energy to good use. Vow to work on healthier ways to cope when feeling stressed together.

Attend a Social Gathering (Even If You Don’t Want To)

If you’re prone to social anxiety, it’s important to make time for       socialization. It’s cool to be an introvert, but know that we live in a universe that revolves around connecting with others.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise!

Exercise is nature’s anti-anxiety remedy. Besides clearing the mind, firing up the endorphins, and helping you sleep soundly at night,     researchers have found that individuals who exercise vigorously and regularly were 25 percent less likely to develop an anxiety disorder within five years.

Accept Your Anxiety

Whether you inherited the “anxiety gene” from your parents, or your lifestyle, or both, accept your anxiety rather than fight it. It’s not about rolling over and giving up. Understand you have to work hard every day to bring calm to your environment.
Remember there’s always options in life, and worse fates exist than being anxiety-sensitive. After all, when push comes to shove, at the end of the (stressed out) day, anxious people get the job done!

Schedule a Visit with a Therapist

 Nobody deserves to feel bad. A qualified mental health professional is your best bet if your anxiety is unbearable.

ps. I know a good one.

You can beat this, and you will beat this.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very successful 2019.

Best wishes
