Practicing patience for you and others eliminates so much anxiety.

Practicing patience for you and others eliminates so much anxiety.

Nothing in our world promotes patience. Nothing. We are communicating 24/7 faster and with higher response expectations than ever before. Our smart phone providers are constantly trying to upgrade us to “faster”. When we text, we expect instant response. We constantly check in with our devices to see what is going on…every few minutes. Understand, you are checking your phone every few minutes to see what is next…and you have not finished “right now”.

Patience is a virtue, true. It also can keep us from experiencing full on anxiety and stress attacks. “Natalie, I am too busy to be patient”. Our 100 trillion cells in our bodies need oxygen and circulation to be healthy. Every time you stimulate the stress producing – fight or flight – chemical, you disperse Cortisol to your entire body. It helps you to get ready to run away from the lions and tigers and bears. What helps you not flee and continually release Cortisol into your body?

Breathe. Move. Close your eyes. Put your device down. Hydrate. Nutritious food. It is simple and easy. You just need to be patient enough to allow yourself these kinds of moments and space.

May I help?
