Many people tell me they’re barely making it through the day. There’s fragile health, crushing work demands, and family care. Plus, the overwhelming worry of escalating political and environmental tensions.
We grieve. And grief is emotionally hard. It zaps your energy.
This week I’ve heard people say, “I have small children and no time to grieve.” “Georgena, I find myself wildly irritated. By everything. I called you because the calm I felt after our work together is gone.”
So, what now?
- Will you turn your back on your grief because you’re too tired?
- Will you try fighting off the irritation?
- Will you be anxious about not being anxious?
Or instead, will you choose self-care? Like taking 1-minute for your precious self. Allowing yourself to move deeply into this feeling. Knowing that once in, there is a simple recharge switch known as wellbeing.
With this goal in mind, I invite you to sit in a chair.
- Feel your sitz bones connect with the chair.
- Feel your feet on the floor.
- Now bend all the way down, placing your hands on the floor.
- Breathe in the stability of the floor as you name your emotion aloud.
- Now breathe out. Release the grief, wild irritation, and anxiety. Let the floor and earth absorb it.
- Repeat 3-9 times.
- Then slowly come to a sitting position. Allow your hands to sweep up your feet, ankles, shins, knees, thighs, and come to rest palms up on your thighs.
What are you feeling now? Hit reply and let me know.
