We've all been told that when you are anxious or stressed to take a deep breath and count to 10. This is such a fabulous way to calm, relax and center ourselves when things feel out of our control. When you start to feel anxious, heart racing, short breaths, as happens to us all, you can take back control. Stop, close your eyes down, inhale deeply expanding your abdominal area and hold the breath for 3 seconds, then exhale slowly. Continue to do this until you feel centered, relaxed and present. You'll find your thoughts centering as well through the process ultimately calming the chaos. In such a short time, you have taken back control and you're ready to handle whatever life throws at you.
You may be surprised to learn that you just performed self-hypnosis. Hypnosis is a wonderful, powerful tool to take back control when you feel it's lost.
