How does your body feel when you reflect on relieving anxiety?
What emotions come to the surface?
What beliefs do you have surrounding this topic?
What stories do you tell yourself and others about anxiety?
How will being mindful about relieving anxiety help support your day-to-day life?
With a deep exhale bring a gentle awareness that others are feeling similar about relieving anxiety as you.
Settle yourself into a comfortable and relaxed position and just let go of all your immediate daily stresses.
Allow yourself to just be here and now, letting your body just be…
There is nothing to do, as our bodies naturally want to be calm and relaxed.
Thinking too much or being tense and anxious doesn’t allow us to relax.
We feel anxious because we tend to overanalyze what we think will happen today, tomorrow, or next week.
We do this out of habit because in the past….. situations, and outcomes didn’t happen the way we expected, and we tend to feel that we need to be in control and be worried.
So naturally, we must let go of any need to control the present moment and future outcomes.
In order to change our habits, we must change our self-image and create new beliefs.
This practice will teach you this, but first, we need to get in a relaxed state and go
within, calming our mind with some breathing.
I will count down….. and with each number I say I want you to fully inhale with your belly out and exhale tightening your belly in.
With each breath, you will feel more and more relaxed, taking you into a deep state of
5...Take a full in breath and as you exhale feel the tension loosen just a little bit.
4...Take a nice deep breath in and as you exhale you feel even more relaxed and tensions let go.
3...Full breath in...and out. Your mind is becoming calm and clear.
2...Inhale deeply and as you exhale notice how the need to control lessons and you are completely relaxed.
1...As you take your last breath in and exhale slowly you feel any tension is gone, and you are in complete peace and tranquility.
Now you hear yourself saying...
“I’ve survived this before, I’ll survive now.
I’m strong and I persevere through anything.
I know that I’m not my anxiety.
I can take things one step at a time.
I live only in this moment.
I approach this situation with openness and curiosity.
I’m in charge of my breathing, and I can slow it down when I need to.
I enjoy my feelings of inner calm.

awareness of the present moment, and as you do, you bring with you all that you gained today.
