Focus Focus Focus 🏌🏻‍♀️⛳️💆🏻‍♀️

Lately I’ve been feeling quite agitated and stressed out with all that I have on, work commitments and the workload involved with my Masters. I have been feeling exhausted and lacking energy, allowing stress and negative thoughts run my life. I’ve given too much power to the negative and doubting mind. I’ve realised I don’t Trust myself enough.

I love the work I do, I love taking on new challenges and any opportunity that comes along my way. However then I can feel a sense of impending doom e.g. I’m away tomorrow to Derry to a circus school (which is so exciting!) not to join the circus sadly but to provide training for them in helping them develop Resilience within their programmes for children. Knowing that I am quite a Resilient person I know what I’m taking about yet the closer tomorrow approaches the more anxious and negative I am becoming. Why? I’ve figured out its that I don’t Trust myself enough.

Ways I’m Practising Self-Trust:
.
.
Memories: I keep recalling other trainings I’ve facilitated, remembering how well they’ve went and how I was more than capable.
.
.
Gentle Self-Talk: I am making a conscious effort to speak gently to myself, making powerful ‘I AM’ and ‘I CAN’ statements to rid my mind of self-deprecating phrases.
.
.
Breathe: Some days I am so busy, rushing around organising work and avoiding to connect fully with my self and my body. It might sound daft but some days I find breathing slowly and slowing down my body difficult! Today I’m taking short breaks for 2mins to consciously BREATHE slowly and deeply!
