An invitation to take ownership of your 'stress'

Updated: Aug 14, 2022

De-stress meaning do the opposite of being stressed right?

Well, for some of us being stressed is a habitual energy that we are used to embodying, have done for years some might say, some of us feed into the stress some of us actively avoid it.

What I have learnt over the years is that whilst trying all of the techniques that we hear about have definite benefits, I find the most beneficial practice is to name what is causing the stress, what thoughts have been popping into my mind and what I want to do about it. I have caught myself feeding into the drama and felt myself spiralling into angst. I then feel crappy and the cycle continues. The question I ask now is how do I want to feel, how do I want to show up in this situation and if I decide to be a big ball of stress and chaos then right on, so be it, but I take ownership that this is something I have chosen consciously rather than fall into that familiar pattern of being. The beauty of this practice is that by giving myself permission to be stressed if I damn well please, I choose how I show up thankyou very much and all that jazz, guess what? The stress falls away and has less of a hold, it comes and goes like the waves rolling into shore, seen and then blends back into the body of the ocean.
