Are there days when you don’t feel like yourself? Let’s explore some of the reasons why this happens.

1. You might be caught in the grip of Fight, Flight, or Freeze mode, a state that can have a profound impact on your well-being.

2. You’re living in the past.

3. You’re living in the future.

 

When you are in fight mode, you feel ready for battle, whether imaginary or real. It can be exhausting and very distracting. Everyone you encounter feels like they are looking for a fight.

Flight mode tends to energetically take you out of your body. You say, “I don’t like what is going on, so I’m going to float up here and just observe.”

Freeze mode is just that! You feel frozen in place, and no matter what you do, you can’t move forward.

Living in the past is especially difficult because you miss what’s going on in the moment. The same can be said for the future. I think of that as daydreaming, wishing, hoping, and not being content.

So, what can be done? The first thing you can do is become present! Be in the moment! Let’s face it: you can’t change the past. The quickest way to move through it is to accept it. That can be difficult, especially if it’s moving past the loss of a loved one. Life changes, and we fight the change because we like it how it was. This is called resistance. The best way to move forward is to take one day at a time. One moment at a time. How do you do that? I’m glad you asked!

Right now, please take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Then, take another one and finally one more. Close your eyes and continue to breathe while focusing on your breath—in and out. Try not to think of anything else but your breath. When you feel relaxed, slowly open your eyes and look around the room. As you look around the room, focus on each item and tell the Universe, “I am thankful and grateful for (fill in the blank).”

This technique teaches you to be in the moment. We only have this moment so it’s essential to spend time here. When you focus on the here and now, many benefits come from that practice.

Some of the benefits are:

1. It helps with Panic Attacks. How does that help? It takes you out of the situation your body remembers and lets you know it isn’t happening by putting you in the present moment.

2. It reminds you to appreciate all that you have. When we appreciate all we have, the universe will bring us more!

3. You will see opportunities when they come your way. Think about a time when you were talking to someone. They indicated there was a job available at their office. They were specific about the type of person they were looking for. You were half listening. If you had been fully present, you would have realized you were the person they were looking for! Opportunity missed!

4. You will always move forward. Being present keeps you focused on the here and now, allows you to be more aware, and enables you to take one step at a time.

 

Why not try this easy technique today? Move forward with your life and find peace.
