Top 50 Anxiety Blog Award
I’m very honoured that this anxiety blog has been named in the Top 50 of the ‘Best Anxiety Blogs on the planet’ list by Feedspot.com (March 2017).
So a huge thank you to you for reading this and helping me share my message that we can overcome unnecessary and unwanted anxiety, fear and worry.
Quit Smoking Help:
Are you desperate to quit smoking yet find that somehow, no matter what you try, you just can’t break the habit?
If you struggle with anxiety then smoking may have become a sort of crutch that you lean on when you need to try and feel calmer. You may smoke when stressed, worried or just to get a few minutes to yourself a few times a day.
Yet smoking can just add to your stress and anxiety levels. You may feel anxious about the future health impacts and whether you will be around to share the time with loved ones. You may find that you get anxious if you are in a situation where you can’t smoke and worry because that crutch isn’t there.
And of course, the sneaking about and planning your day around cigarettes can also add to the pot of stress and anxiety.
So how can you successfully quit smoking without adding to your anxiety?
Insomnia and Anxiety – How To Sleep Better:
Is anxiety driving your insomnia and keeping you awake at night? Or maybe you worry about the prospect of going to bed and all those hours you’ll be lying awake and wondering why? And could it be that when you try to go to sleep, or if you wake up in the early hours, all those thoughts swirl around your mind and you can’t shut them out?
Insomnia and anxiety are often closely linked and often become so interconnected that you can no longer tell which is leading to which.
Many people I help find that their insomnia creeps in first and before they know it they start to dread those hours of lying awake at night. Other clients find that their anxiety has spread into their nights and they lie awake with their mind still going in overdrive over all the worst case scenarios.
And of course, the more tired you feel from insomnia and anxiety, the harder it becomes to find the physical and mental energy to finally break that pattern.
Mindfulness Helps Anxiety and Stress:
A new study has found that mindfulness can help reduce anxiety and stress which is of course great news to those of us who specialise in the anxiety management field.
Because as we know, it isn’t just about time management or eating healthier when it comes to conquering stress and anxiety. What you really need is to learn how to be in control over thoughts, feelings and reactions.
After all, there will always be stuff to do and a never ending cycle of commitments, demands and responsibilities. So learning mental resilience and strength is always going to be the wining strategy (and even better than just mindfulness is incorporating it with hypnosis so you can direct your mind to achieve the outcomes you want in your life).
So how can you easily incorporate the most useful elements of mindfulness into your anxiety and stress busting toolkit?
