This week Esther Nagle, a yoga instructor and breath coach in South Wales, teach us about how our breath can impact how we experience our everyday and our anxiety. Esther also had some anxiety and even addictions which she was able to shift all with something that is free and available to everyone – breath.
This is important!
All of you that want to skip to the next to-do – slow down already.
Take time to smell the new perspective, see new shades of blue in the sky, feel more ooey gooey feelings and bathe yourself in dance parties and high fives. Savor successes along the journey. We can’t forget to celebrate our wins or it will all feel like challenges. That’s the difference between thriving and surviving
The biggest challenge to changing habits – whether you want to be healthier, reduce your anxiety or just get rid of the overwhelming stress is truly understanding how the changes are making an impact. Too often, we overlook the millions of little changes over time of keeping better habits and we give up.
I hear this saying all the time: Fake it til you make it.
I used to subscribe to this, but when my anxiety or depression got real bad, it didn’t work. Instead, it made me feel worse. I couldn’t fake it right either and I felt, well, fake.
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed and maybe you aren’t even feeling like yourself, try this exercise out.
You have all that you need in order to step into your power. Maybe you’ve heard that before, but you just don’t understand exactly what that means. I did a lot of therapy and self-work before I found some practical, hands-on tools that would help me change how I spoke, acted and reacted in situations.
