2018 was not an easy year for me. There was financial stress, relationship stress, family stress, physical stress, career stress, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some other stress in there too. And even though I have actually taught myself to be able to shag off unneeded stress from my world (there is no way to remove all of it), what I realized that really helped me not lose it was that I had something to "ground" me. It was like my security blanket. Think about a young kid with their blanket. If they get scared they would throw the blanket over their head and they would be protected or feel safe. They could relax. We all need to have some sort of ground to reset to. This ground might be a plan of attack, or way to quiet your brain, or an activity that allows you to "recharge". The way these things work is that they take you away from the current situation, whatever it might be, and allow you to focus on IT rather than focusing on going out of control with the other stuff. It's easy to get lost in the swirling sea of stress and turmoil. But your ground will act as a life preserver. For me, my ground is Wim Hoff Deep Breathing and an audio track called Revolutioner. The audio track, which is about 12 minutes, has a wave frequency that gets my brain to fall in synch with. It usually is in a calming or focusing state of wave patterns. At the same time, I do Wim Hoff Breathing which is a way to decrease the stress in my body, decrease my heart rate and blood pressure and allow me to fully oxygenate my body. After I do a couple rounds of it, I just do easy breathing for the remainder of the time of the track. When I am done, I feel much more relaxed, I don't feel like my head is spinning in panic, and I'm able to be much more logical about things that are happening or need to happen. I'm not saying this will work for everyone. I'm saying you need to find yours. If you haven't figured it out yet, I'd suggest trying a few different things so you have your protection before the new year starts! :)
