Are people always telling you to
Slow down ....
Take time for yourself,
Fit your own oxygen mask first.
And is it always making you a little sick in the stomach just thinking about it? Maybe it's actually making the problem worse?
Because then the guilt sets in .. "I need to do this slowing down thing but I can't .... I know it's best for me and for everyone but I can't and now I'm failing even more than I was before!"
It's okay ... really ... because you're about to give you the best news you've had all week (possibly ever!).
But first here's an invitation to do something.
Breathe deeply 3 times.
Breathe right down into your lower belly. Three times.
This little trick is the only one we have to fool our sympathetic nervous system - normally it just does things in our body without asking permission.
And it's so simple. Breathe.
Because when we breathe deeply, filling our lungs completely, we can't be running away or climbing trees or fighting. So our brain and our body things it's safe.
And very few of us actually ever breathe properly, deeply, meaningfully ....
Having fewer stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline coursing through our veins is a very good thing. It can make a world of difference to our health, to our outlook on life and our longevity. Having fewer stress hormones gives those other feel good hormones and neurotransmitters a chance not have their say and to do what they are meant to do.
Bathing our systems in cortisol all day everyday is not good.
It's really not good. Stop it!
So right now and at least 3 times a day every single day for the rest of your life, stop .... and breathe.
