How Crying Babies Can Help With Anxiety.
‘Cry baby’ is the example that I’m using to help combat your anxiety…
How many times has a baby started to cry and instinctively you distract it away from its crying.
You Sing, Dance, Pull Faces, Make Weird Sound, Wave Toys, Keys, Teddies and Favourite Toys etc. in the child’s face and so on.
Imagine that this could be done to you every time you started to have an anxious moment in your life.
How quickly do you think it would take for you to snap out of it by being distracted. Just as the baby is from crying.
Well you can distract yourself with ease by doing the same thing to yourself as to the crying child. …Start acting a bit daft!
You Can Dance…
Dance, Sing, Breathe, Play, Exercise, use you mobile to help distract you, use your imagination by thinking of good things that have happened to you. Do anything that feels right to distract yourself away from that anxiousness, as with the misdirecting of the child…
I’ve even known some people do weird maths in their heads. One guy used to calculate how long it would take him to walk to the moon if he was walking at 3 miles per hour. This took his mind away from anxiety by being distracted.
Remember Stress isn’t Anxiety.
So use whatever fits you as a distraction method. But if you are stressed, this is because you’re frustrated and that has happened because things haven’t gone how you expected them too. This isn’t anxiety.
What To Do?
So ease off by removing yourself away from the problem and distract yourself by taking slow deep breaths for a while. This will calm you down by balancing your mind and body.
You will then be able to return to the problem once more, being able to deal with it more affectively.
