Calming Down: Relax Right Now

At first glance, the concept of calming down is like holding a glass of water on a hot summer day and hoping it turns to ice. In the midst of stress and panic, calming down is the last thing one thinks about, and therein lies the problem!

Calming Down

AFTER we acknowledge and allow ourselves to experience our stress and anxiety, calming down should become our main focus. I understand how challenging this can be. I’ve had moments where I needed to bolt out of a room so fast, the Roadrunner would have hitched a ride.

We hold the ability to change our thoughts, our inner conversations. Yes, we control the messages we send ourselves. Yes, we create much of our anxiety and much of our panic. I know many readers do not want to hear this point, let alone accept it. After all, we are led to believe that medication will fix all that is wrong - not true. I realized this first hand years ago when I began taking anti-anxiety medication. I thought it was a magic pill which would restore everything to normalcy. That’s why I went into a tailspin when I didn’t notice any improvement after taking medication. Calming down is an ability which lies within us. We have the ability to calm down by changing our thoughts. Accountability is never an easy pill to swallow, pun intended.

After acknowledging and accepting the discomfort of realizing our self directed ability of calming down, focus on the beauty of that realization and what it means in terms of changing your life.

How wonderful it truly is to know that you can actually do this! Talk about life changing. The answer to any challenge, must always come first from within. Yes, we can and should gain strength from others, but we must first decide if we want to assume responsibility to improve.

No person can want it more than you, and recovery magically ensues . Think not only about
yourself, think of the stress reduction for your loved ones who have wanted it more than you!!

Let’s keep things simple and focus on the following for calming down:

1. Acknowledge: the stress and anxiety
2. Allow: the feelings of stress and anxiety. It’s OK to feel stressed.
3. Focus: on calming down. Tell yourself: I am capable of sending myself positive thoughts. I am in control of what I tell myself. I can overcome these feelings. I control my stress, stress does not control me.

In closing, this is a marathon, not a sprint. I continue to slip back into my old ways and you will, too. That’s OK! the important thing to remember is that you recognize this and hit the reset button by remembering your role in calming down. You remain the main ingredient - join me in the success!

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
