April Anxiety Tip#1: Stress Happens

April Anxiety Tip#1: Stress Happens 0

Ironies of ironies. On the morning I planned to publish my first post in my “April Anxiety Challenge” my suddenly non-responsive computer gave me anxiety.

The good news is I got a chance to practice what I preach. My anti-anxiety skills helped me calm down, clear my head, and find a solution.

Stress happens. It happens every day in ways small and large.

There are going to be problems arise throughout each day. The question isn’t whether there will be problems. The question is: how will you respond to the problems?

Anxiety can suck the life out of life. It seems to me that we are experiencing an anxiety epidemic. You probably see it (and maybe feel it) too.

One of my many specialties as a counselor and hypnotherapist is anxiety. I've helped tons of people overcome all sorts of levels of anxiety—from everyday types of stress to "I can't leave my house" anxiety.

I have a unique perspective and insights into anxiety because of the work I have done with clients, and also because of my own experiences overcoming fear, anxiety, and even panic.

Domestic Violence against men is real. If your wife or girlfriend is angry and abusive, take it seriously. Just because you are a guy doesn't mean she can't hurt you. Make a safety plan.

If you are the friend or relative of a man in danger, pass on this information to him and help him make a plan to keep himself and his children safe.

(Note: I have included this Safety Plan and more in a FREE ebook. I'll tell you more about it later in this post.)

                              Hypnosis won’t make you cluck like a chicken or jump up when a bell rings . . . unless you want it to.

                              These sorts of stage hypnosis antics have the unfortunate side effect of making people worry that if they get hypnotized they will do weird things they don’t want to do. The reality is people don’t come away from hypnosis doing anything that they don’t want to do.

                              It’s difficult to get somewhere if you don’t know where you’re going. Picturing the life you want can help make it happen. Making a vision board can help make your dreams a reality.

                              I recently made a vision board to fulfill a marketing class assignment. I was surprised by the motivating power of this simple project.

                              Through trial and error I found some free digital tools that made it easy. I’m passing them on to you so you don’t have to have the frustrating error part. You get to have the easy way.

                              Here is my version of the Chinese Farmer fable or parable that can help you to pull out of awfulizing about your life.

                              A farmer who was feeling down and out because his farm was not doing well went to the local guru to complain about his plight and seek advice. The guru’s response to his story: “Maybe it’s good. Maybe it’s bad.”

                              The farmer found the guru’s surprising “advice” disappointing and confusing.

                              He tossed and turned that night, unable to sleep for worry about his situation. His head spun imagining his family’s awful future.
