Take five minutes to breathe and let go x

Feeling really down and defeated today but hey tomorrow is a new day right? We’ll be okay 💕

This is a great message. I think the idea that we're not enough, we don't do enough, could be the root cause of anxiety for a lot of us.

Your post makes me feel a bit better. Deep breathing and the notion that I am enough is sooooo good. It’s hard for to believe I’m worthy but I feel it right now so I know it can be so. Thanks Hope have beautiful times!

Awww 🥰 love you 😘 I keep deep breathing and it keeps making me yawn. I’ve had a day. This is a perfect way to switch over from my negativity to allowing myself to relax.

Are you saying breathe from your diaphragm or your nose

Reply

Nose ...slowly....there’s a video 👆up there a tutorial...worth a few minutes to watch it

lol... r u sure that's why she said to tape ur mouth? 😅

😁pinkie promise mel it retrains the brain and relaxes the diaphragm slowwwwwww nasal controlled breathing ,deep breathing is the opposite of what you need hence a brown paper bag for panic attacks....so you just breathe carbon dioxide in...and stop hyperventilating 😅I wouldn’t joke about something serious

Reply

🤣 🤣 🤣 Think she just needed some quiet 🤫 so she handed out some tape ... I play the silent game with nieces and nephews too... ‘who can stay quiet the longest’ ...

Reply

My device won’t let me watch but I’ll check back later... but yeah one of my mindfulness teachers was always having us breathe through the nose.

I really love your mindset, this is what I am trying too. But lately just breathing in a present moment is difficult, so much pain, yet, I still am retraining my brain with positivity.

I agree. I forgot to be myself for a long, long time. But, lately I've been able to be myself more. I sure have felt a lot better too! Sometimes your physical health can drag your mental health down too. So, remember to get some exercise, sunshine, stay hydrated and eat good, nutritious food. Associate with some people you do like. (Form a 'No Witches Allowed' club(lol)). I'll add some extra prayers for you too, my awesome friend!

I hope you feel better quickly, my friend. That's all I can ask. I'll be around if you need me. Hugs and love from Sue and me!

Yes that is a good mindset- absolutely tomorrow is a new day. Take time to slowly do the things that bring you a feeling of calm and peace today. A short walk may be a good plan, fresh air can help clear the mind. Thank you for sharing.

I don’t know anymore. Just got some bad news this morning and at this point, who cares?!?! My advice: life is too short for the dumb stuff and what do you ask is the dumb stuff?.,it is anything that causes you: pain, grief, anxiety, etc. Thank you all for the support but it is too hard right now to focus on anything but taking care of me. 🇺🇸

Thank you 😊 thats the most important thing! To take care of yourself first

I always feel helpless against things I can’t change! Why is that? Anyone else?

I think thats when we say to your brain “trust” maybe this would help... if you believe it you will feel better and really if we can’t do anything we must try to let go of controlling that we do, I do it, it’s tough, best to us! ❤️

Hey I’m sorry for the late reply I’ve not been feeling too well so have been resting.

Hmm it’s probably because you like to feel in control maybe and when you don’t you are struggling with that feeling . But I’m not sure have you tried asking a professional? Thrilled have a better answer than me . I’m sorry you feel this way 😔 always here for a chat of you need

Today is another painful yet proud day for me. I have PTSD and I am struggling just what day it is and all the feelings that come with it. I am seeking grief counseling from a pro because I know I cannot handle all the emotions that have come up. I do thank all of you for the kind words of advice.
