I spent a large portion of last night picking up my teeth from the floor, pushing the wobbly teeth left in my mouth with my tongue and wiping their chalky remains from my gums as they fell. Double yuk, right?
Luckily I wasn't in the middle of the street it was just my anxiety dream - it turns up like clock work whenever I'm feeling worried, vulnerable and a bit out of control. And I'll level with you, that it's kind of how I'm feeling at the moment as there's a lot going on and not a lot of answers - I'll be fine but it doesn't mean it has to feel nice in the process!
I used to get my 'teeth dream' a couple of times a week at one point and, around that time I was also feeling super stressed out at work. So that dream was like a horrible sequel of stress to the crying in the toilets I found myself doing in the day time. I felt like I just couldn't get a break and knew I needed to try something.
I turned to trying to understand how my brain, body and emotions were colluding together to keep me in a state of worry. Through this process I realised first hand not only the power OF my thoughts but my power OVER my thoughts too and since then I haven't looked back. Check out this short video I just made for you that highlights how I rapidly reduced my anxiety and what I do now when it rears it's ugly head to get it GONE.
Meet me in the comments below and tell me how do you know you're feeling anxious? What's your version of your 'teeth dream'? How have you found ways to keep on top of those horrid worry times?
Let's share our pearls to support each other!
Love Lucy xoxo
