Fighting the fear

  1. Take some deep breaths. Think about what might be causing this and what you can, or can’t, do about it.
  2. If it’s a nice day, go outside. Face the sun, shut your eyes and spread your feet apart comfortably and securely. Let your arms flop to your sides. Take some deep breaths. Let the sun warm your face. Feel the breeze on your body. Breath. Listen to the world around you.
  3. Write it all down, every last poisonous worry. Feel smug that they’re now out of your head.
  4. Do something that is nagging you, even if you don’t want to do it. Feel proud of yourself for doing it.
  5. Cuddle or call someone you love.
  6. Take a shower, apply some moisturiser. Wear clothes that make you feel good and put some make up on, if that’s your thing.
  7. Eat some fruit or a salad.
  8. Drink a cold refreshing glass of water.
  9. Write in your diary – three things that have gone well today.
  10. Have faith that tomorrow is another day.

Never mind, the sun will shine again.
