Your Body, Your Best Therapist

Is it May already? and 2020. What a weird year!

Sent via my social media and transferred here for you. I’d be curious what people thought about the “anxiety” one. Seems perhaps a bit incomplete. As an occupational therapist, I would add that all of these emotions require bravery – and that anxiety needs bravery + movement + accomplishment (however small). And singing, anxiety needs singing.

It may need acknowledgement that our evolutionary or developmental systems have wires that have been tripped. And perhaps a part is true, but often the ball of worry that snowballs is simply protective, and not fully true in every part. Some of anxiety is habit.

Some of it is an evolutionary “RUN!” when we may need to stand our ground. Or the hard whisper of “Freeze!” when we are actually safe enough to move. How do we know? Talking, being still and waiting with compassion, breathing, looking around, maybe humour, maybe dark humour…. but not just believing that anxiety is being fully honest. Sometimes it’s just our muscles,  that need water, a walk and some humour.  Sometimes it’s overwhelm that needs to do just one small thing. Sometimes we need to actually talk our way into doing a simple task – with bravery, yes. But also with Doing.

Oh, yes, but I was going to just show you this! .What does your body say.. enjoy:
