It is like talking to a friend who is only listening to you. And sometimes, you even get the best advice you need, just by exploring your thoughts. You need to be completely honest though. Take your time. It is especially great to write down your most stressful moments in order to find out why they gave you so much stress.
Here are some questions that you can answer to get you started!
- What made you happy today?
- What made you stressed today?
- Who do you need to contact?
- When was the last time you did something for yourself?
- What is the priority in your life? –you can only have one priority
- What can you do differently tomorrow?
- Who inspires you?
- What do you regret?
- How can you change your life for the better?
- What are your strengths?
10. Keep A Gratitude Journal
Since you are journaling anyway, write down three things that you are grateful for every day. A gratitude journal has shown to help increase happiness and reduce stress. These three things can be anything, ranging from the simplest and mundane things. “I am grateful that I have clean socks to wear today”. It sounds ridiculous, but I truly am happy that I don’t have to wear dirty socks!
By reminding yourself of the things that you normally take for granted, you will experience greater happiness in your life.
I strongly believe that you can learn whatever you want, by yourself. especially since the age of information, where everything can be found on the internet. You can teach yourself to play the guitar, learn a language, and even how to cope with anxiety.
But whatever you are trying to learn, mastery can happen a lot faster if you are coached. Learning the guitar is a lot easier if your coach pushes you to perform a song by next week. Coaching helps you to identify your triggers sooner and gives you strong techniques to deal with them, specified for your situations.
Dealing with anxiety and to stop an anxiety attack might seem daunting, but you shouldn’t give up. Never let your anxiety control your life; live life on your own terms.
