Anxiety busting tip that works

Aug 29, 2020   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

For yourself, or someone who you are aware is deeply anxious, try this:

Adrenalin will be pushing the heart rate and shallow breathing occurs, mind goes into wanting to run, but maybe that’s not ok. So what to do?

Try this: immediately

Focus on 4 things you can SEE, name them. Focus then on 3 things you can FEEL, name them. Focus then on 2 things you can HEAR, name them. Focus on one thing you can SMELL.

In this way your awareness is back into your surroundings rather than the thing that has triggered your/their anxiety. Then you can begin to focus on what you ARE THINKING and CHANGE them. Being back in control of your thinking is essential and a clever way to choose how to continue to change the sensation of anxiety. eg, breathing exercises of which there are many, to learn and use; movement exercises, dance, laughter, chatting, music, massage type therapies. Keep checking the thinking to be aware if it is being positive, helpful, supportive, rather than increasing the sense of panic.

Boost Immune System to be well – here’s how in simple ways to beat coronavirus

Mar 16, 2020   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, News, Nutrition, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

The thing to remember is that anxiety/stress/fear – created by the C Virus news and more, challenges the immune system, it suffers, you suffer.

It is a complex system, a complex piece of armoury in the body/mind mechanism. Every day papers are published in research of how it operates. To date here are accepted positive actions YOU can take in a simple way to fit in easily with your life, to enhance and protect this so important body activity. It will support you then in your constant unseen work to protect you from all virus.

Feel EMPOWERED.. really think in this way. Your mind will then connect with mechanisms that automatically run along to protect your cells, to keep toxins at bay, to kill them as they produce. Your brain is stimulated by your thinking to instruct the body to be strong and well. So, Positive Thoughts are key. However, along with that are other powerful requirements, listed here.

EAT WELL. organic, or very clean, unprocessed foods. Mostly, if you can, plant based diet – unless you know better about your unique system, but always ask a nutritional therapist, who are qualified to discuss, if unsure! Phytonutrients are the ones to gather in. Plant foods are the right ingredients to succeed in this focus, such as Kiwi, Garlic, Onions, Ginger, Green Tea, Cruciferous Veg as per Broccoli, Cauli, Chinese Cabbage, Bok Choy, Berries, Red Grapes, Citrus Fruits, Red Peppers, Apples, Mushrooms. And all seeds as per sunflower to create antibodies. Supplements may be applicable to boost your levels. Again, speak with a nutritional therapist. There are specific known base nutrients that we need to have in good supply for the immune system to work efficiently.

EXERCISE: releases the nutrients via the bloodstream, which flows happily if encouraged by the heart picking up speed a little, and beating regularly and comfortably. Endorphins are released for feel good factors. All the best vitamins can be conducted to the places essentially required to function at optimum state. If you are already poorly or exhausted, go gently. You can do simple stretches, yoga, tai chi, gardening, walk in nature for example.

SLEEP: the exercise and the right nutrients at the right time of day, aid and good productive sleep – the healing balm. We know sleep is vital for healing. During this time of quietness, the brain can direct the renewal and restore procedures – while we aren’t interfering! Immune cells especially are increased with regular, relaxed sleep. Before or after sleep then, we can support our immune boost help with some –

MEDITATION: or at least some private to ourselves time, to gently nurture our responses, which are constantly commanded during our days. To be still, reflective, accepting of Self, deliberately promoting steady and –

DEEP BREATHING: which is proven to instantly calm the immune response, and all our body functioning. We cannot keep well and alert to incoming danger if we are distracted continually by outside stimuli. There are many breathing exercises to investigate, but start simply – using the diagphram. Ask for help if this is not understood. Yogi breathing uses this method from the start. It becomes a way of life, of living – the breathing you learn – to enhance every cell, to teach the immune system to relax and be nourished in oxygen. Perhaps try this: using the belly muscles, push them out, and bring in oxygen for the count of five. Hold for the same, release for the same count, slowly, deliberately. Do this many times. It is calming. You need to focus, it stops therefore, naturally, the mind busyness. You are filled with health supportive oxygen and release toxins. It feels great. Try it!

COMMUNICATE: – we can do this for others, and in support of ourselves better when calm and steady. Or because we aren’t and are reaching out. We can though engage our thoughtfulness and kind response if we know of someone vulnerable who may be frightened and or lonely in their days. These negative feelings are quick to gather and expand. Generally a kind or understanding conversation, or sharing of upset can sooth the immune system and allow the continuation then of more supportive and positive vibes. So reach out for yourself or for others and “meet” to learn, improve, and genuinely care. This is why Life Coaching, or Mentoring works. The whole system begins to function in a positive well-being focused way.

Anne as a nutritional therapist is always happy to listen to your specific concerns. And will undoubtedly then find answers with you. REMOVE the FEAR. BUILD the CONFIDENCE of yourself and your IMMUNE SYSTEM.
