Note to self: reframing anxiety
Dealing with anxiety can sometimes feel like trying to stop a runaway train. These 3 simple phrases can be like breaks for that crazy train :
💙 “Anxiety is trying to keep me safe”: reframes anxiety as a concerned companion rather than an adversary, just acknowledge and let it go.
💙 “Deep breaths, small steps”: I can do one thing at a time.
💙 “I’m here now”: it serves as anchor to the present moment.
It’s my little toolkit for dealing with anxiety. They remind me to be kind to myself, take things one step at a time, and stay in the here and now.
These phrases were inspired by a morning meditation I was doing using the Calm app.
