Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, you should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get tyour mind off of the problem. You could get some fresh air, listen to some music, or do an activity that will give you a fresh perspective on things.
Try to visualize a red stop sign in your mind when you encounter a fear provoking thought. When the negative thought comes, you should think of a red stop sign that serves as a reminder to stop focusing on that thought and to think of something else. You can then try to think of something positive to replace the negative thought.
Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week or coming month, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. Focus on the present and stop trying to predict what may happen next week. Next week will take care of itself.
Instead of focusing on doom, stay in the moment. Give yourself breathing space. Consider what matters to you. Establish a few manageable goals, then take small steps toward achieving them.
For a fresh perspective, get a good night's sleep. I know, that is not easy but things always look better in the daylight. Keep posting here as you are part of the HW family.
