Lately, I've been waking up with a nervous-anxious feeling. I wakeup, and I feel overwhelmed with a sense of things being out of control. I get butterflies in my stomach and my heart starts to pound, and I feel this weight come over me. This is something I've struggled with all my life, but I had done enough work that I began to wakeup calm and ready for the day ahead. I'm disappointed the anxiety is back so fully, and going to journal and reflect later on why it's happening again.
But even without sitting with the feeling, I have an idea of why it's here. I just don't believe in myself. I start doubting myself and my abilities, and that spirals me into a place of total fear. I begin worrying about everything, and I get lost in my endless thoughts of all the things that can go wrong. And thus, I wakeup nervous, uncertain of myself or this world.
One of the ways I know of that helps me to soothe the fear is to put my hands on my heart, close my eyes, and take some deep breaths. It's a simple action, but it can really do a lot to reduce the intensity of the feelings.
If you're struggling with anxiety, doubt, fear, depression, or any other negative feelings, please know you are not alone! We all lose sight of how incredible and capable we are at times, but it doesn't mean we're going to be lost forever. We just need a light to guide us back to our true self.
