Perhaps you experience unease regarding the speed of your progress, which could be a sign that you need to cultivate awareness within yourself and learn to move with the flow rather than against it.  Nothing is placed in your path that you are incapable of handling, so you can rest assured that you are ready to grow into your new situation.

 

Often people to feel that life is progressing too slowly or too quickly. We draft carefully composed plans only to find that they fall into place when we least expect.When delays in our progress create disappointment or the pace of life seems overwhelming, peace can be found in the simple belief that we are exactly where we need to be at this moment.

Every person fulfills their purpose when the time is right. If you have fast-tracked to success, you may become deeply frustrated if you discover you can no longer satisfy your desires as quickly as you might like. Yet the delays that disappoint you may be laying the foundation for future accomplishments that you have not yet conceived. What you deem a postponement of progress may actually represent an auspicious opportunity to prepare for what is yet to come. Or maybe feel things are moving too quickly forward.

We all enjoy the major milestones in our lives at the appropriate time–some realize their dreams as youngsters while others flourish only in old age. If you take pride in your many accomplishments and make the most of every circumstance in which you find yourself, your time will come.

We are the only ones who can control our attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing our potential, we can take calculated risks and overcome challenges.

• Optimism is not about sugar coating the truth. Lying gets you into trouble- even with yourself!

• Think of possibilities from different perspectives.

• Stop talking in absolutes. Eliminates the words nothing and never from self talk.

• Set specific goals that are attainable.• When you are feeling down due to personal circumstances, take stock of your strengths.

• Lower the stakes, not the standards: Don’t have your whole life riding on the outcome of one event

• Savor small triumphs, steps leading to the bigger picture.

• Set aside self blame and learn from your mistakes.

• Surround yourself with positive people

• Do not read, watch or listen to the news if you become “too upset”.

• Take a few minutes each day to reflect on your feelings.

• Cultivate generosity and gratitude.Image (155) (1)

This season, Less Stress for the Holidays, Managing Time & Focusing to Attain Your Goals have been well received topics in my workshop venues. I’ve come to the personal-professional conclusion that what all participants relate to for an easier season is keeping things simple.

I’m an advocate of this philosophy year round- and I think we all go through phases and times where the “complicated version” is attractive. Extra seasonal demands point to staying with the basics and what matters most. “Being stressed” is about feeling overwhelmed and out of control- and sometimes circumstances are beyond our control. We always have a choice, however, about how we cope with these circumstances.

I work with positive psychology/energy modality EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping) and am a certified practitioner.

Here is EFT for Holiday Stress Relief and for Caregiver Holiday Stress…

EFT for Holiday Stress Relief:  
Before you get started, choose a number 1-10 (10 the highest) that is your perceived rate of stress on this topic.

Here is my simple tapping script for this:

Set up phrase:
(karate chop or massage on “sore spot” below collarbone – upper chest either side)

  • Even though I am feeling soo stressed about going to __ for the holidays, I fully and deeply love & respect myself
  • Even though I know this happens to me every year and it’s ridiculous to become so stressed, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
  • Even though I know the holidays are about gratefulness & peace (inner and outer!) and I feel full of dread, I know I can get thru this.

Round of tapping (see points in photo above): so stressed with holidays
Round of tapping: being grateful
Round of tapping: get thru it!
Check in with your stress level about the holidays and I bet it’s much lower. 

Caregiver EFT Holiday Stress (add on to above or stand alone)

Set up phrase:

  • Even though I feel like I’m being pulled in 10 directions and may be losing my mind I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
  • Even though I’ll feel guilty if I don’t visit, am not with ______on Thanksgiving, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.
  • Even though I really want to spend Thanksgiving with_____ and I’m having dinner for (or going to)_______, I fully and deeply love and respect myself.

Round of tapping: 10 directions Round of tapping: losing my mind
Round of tapping: Guilt 2 rounds of tapping: I’ll be OK
Round of tapping: ______ (subject of caregiving) will be fine
Round of tapping:  Once a year

Now, check in with your stress level about the holidays and I bet it’s much lower. Repeat this everyday.  You may substitute words as needed. Visualize positive celebrations , take time for yourself and keep up the gratefulness lists.

10 Tips to Stop Overthinking

1. Awareness is the beginning of change. Any time you find yourself doubting or feeling stressed or anxious, step back and look at the situation and how you’re responding. In that moment of awareness is the seed of the change you want to make.

2. Don’t think of what can go wrong, but what can go right. In many cases, overthinking is caused by a single emotion: fear. When you focus on all the negative things that might happen, it’s easy to become paralyzed. Next time you sense that you starting to spiral in that direction, stop. Visualize all the things that can go right and keep those thoughts present and up front.

Did you know that
40% of worrying is about things that will never happen
30% of worrying is over things that can’t be changed
10% of worrying is over health (which only gets worse when you worry)
We spend 92% of our time an energy worrying about things that:
1. We have no control over
2. We can’t possibly change
3. Have misperceived

Make a list of things you worry about. Divide your list intocategories listed at the top of this outline. How do you want to redirect your focus?
What would happen if we channeled this energy and effort contructively rather than adding “fuel to the fire”? Worrying is like steeping on the gas pedal while the car is in neutral: we create a lot of noise, use op energy and don’t go anywhere!

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques/ Meridian Tapping) works extraordinarily well to overcome anxiety, fear and worry.  more..http://www.balanceandpower.com/eft.php

Did you know that all procrastination is fear based?
