Anxiety can come in waves, emotions can be triggered unexpectantly and sometimes we can feel overwhelmed and confused by what we are feeling.
Sometimes an emotion suddenly overtakes us and sits with us until we takes control and work through it.
In all circumstances, however overpowered you feel it is important to remind yourself as many times as it takes that you are still in control.
That you have the power and skills to overcome even the most challenging situation and the emotional turmoil they bring with them.
It is also important to identify when we are managing well by ourselves and when we might need to reach out for support from family, friends or even professionals.
Each overwhelming emotion brings with it lessons and create opportunities to understand ourselves on a deeper level.
Anxiety can be crippling, can surface unexpectantly and bring with it both emotional and physical symptoms that are unique to you.
During the midst of the heavy unsettling feeling remind yourself that this will pass, that you are in control and that you will be okay.
Learn how to manage your emotions as they come, what makes you feel calmer and in control?
Try different calming techniques to see what works for you.
It could be meditating, exercise, writing in a journal, having a chat with someone to work through your thoughts, reading a book, doing art or even going for a walk.
As we have mentioned there are so many resources and apps available that can help you step by step to clear your mind, calm yourself and regain control.
Being in control does not mean you will always be happy, or that everything will always be easy.
Working on yourself is an ongoing journey with essential lessons on the way.
The challenging and difficult parts of our life allow us to grow and deal with ourselves more kindly.
Our imperfections make us who we are both on the outside and the inside and allow us to accept ourselves fully with love.
Its during the happy moments when we are at peace with ourselves that we should make note of what role we play in making our day that little bit better.
These are the things we should carry with us through our not so good days.
The secret is you are in control even when you don’t think you are.
You have got through things you probably never thought you could have.
Because you are stronger than you think and you are in control even during the times you almost give up.
