Day 6 – Short and Sweet

I can’t remember where I learned this but it has been AWESOME for me! It was helpful during my high anxiety period and continues to be helpful today during times of heightened emotion or even when I can’t sleep because I have too much on my mind.

The technique is:

Count backwards from 100 by 3. (100… 97… 94… etc) while breathing in a controlled manner. You can’t phone this in because it won’t work if you just do it carelessly! Count down… breathe gently… concentrate on the activity… and position your mind and body in a posture of relaxation.

What this intervention does is help you concentrate on something other than anxiety or anger or whatever undesirable thought/emotion has crossed your mind. I love it! Plus while you’re doing it you can actually feel your body starting to relax and your mind slow down.

See you tomorrow!
