Studies done on stress and health continue to show that chronic anxiety can have an physiological impact. Many negative thoughts and stress in general can manifest themselves in physical ailments. When we take care of ourselves through movement, proper nourishment, and well-being from a place of love and positivity, we reduce our anxiety and its effects.
Begin to label the emotion behind your actions: Are you acting out of fear? Fear of losing a job, fear of not impressing someone, or even the fear of the unknown? Once you have labeled your emotions, note those that come from negativity and replace them with kindness and speak words of empowerment and remind yourself that you are able and that you are in fact all right.
Move in love when dealing with yourself—remember: You are enough, so there is no reason to be fearful only taking action if you wish for a different result.
Take the time to treat yourself to things that add to your happiness. Whether it is a gift to yourself, a favorite healthy dish, or time spent with friends. Whenever you have a negative thought, something that makes you feel drained and defeated, practice redirecting and remind yourself that you are able. This is a fact, and replacing worry with positive facts will empower as well as enable kindness toward self.
This may take practice, but the energy cultivated as well as the shift in your outlook on life will make room for you to accomplish even more. The impact of stress can be traced back to multiple diseases, like type 2 diabetes, for example. The power of kindness is one of the greatest gifts that you can give yourself to extend your life, avoid diseases, and live more joyfully day to day.
