The Mind Body Connection for Anxiety
When we are consumed with fear of the unknowns, anxiety strikes and it can consume our mind…
…. it can also take over our body as well.
Having these symptoms of anxiety overtime, can contribute to not only psychological problems, but also a number of physiological problems like chronic pain, chronic fatigue, insomnia or blood pressure. So what can you do with it?
3 Steps to calm the place in body where you feel Anxiety:
Step 1: Become aware first where you feel the panic or fear or the anxiety in the body.
Step 2: Place your hands to that point on the body. And then focus on the breath extending your out-breath slowly.
Step 3: As you start to feel a little ease, internalise the feeling by noticing how you feel when your body eases.
Anxiety can be so limiting for us and can sometimes leave us feeling lonely and deter us from having meaningful interactions with others.
But as I described above, when we work skilfully with anxiety using our bodies as is used within the ancient art and science of yoga therapy, it can develop confidence and help you feel become empowered.
