Anxiety & Taking Care of You in the Moment
Our mind/body connection is never more obvious than when we’re in a state of anxiety. Fear driven thoughts may bring forward a biochemical response in your body (fast pulse, dry mouth, nausea, shallow breathing, dizziness). Your mind views these symptoms as evidence that something is definitely wrong.
Developing grounding and mindful movement “tricks” may help to reduce anxiety and more quickly bring you to a physical and emotional state of calmness. Practicing some of these, while not in a state of anxiety, may help you to more quickly remember these tips when you feel anxiety coming on.
