ANXIETY

FORGET CORONAVIRUS , ANXIETY IS THE NEW PANDEMIC SWEEPING THE WORLD. I RARELY MEET ANYONE THESE DAYS THAT DOES NOT TELL ME THEY ARE SUFFERING FROM ANXIETY. CELEBRITIES ARE ON THE MEDIA DAILY TELLING US HOW ANXIOUS THEY ARE FEELING. ANXIETY HAS BECOME A TREND , IT IS BETTER TO BE A VICTIM THAN TO BE POWERFUL. THIS NEW VICTIM CULTURE MEANS GENUINE ANXIETY IS BECOMING OVERLOOKED. THE CELEBRITIES DO NOT OFFER ADVICE HOW TO BEAT ANXIETY ONLY THAT IT IS COOL TO REMAIN IN IT.

GENUINE ANXIETY IS A PRESSURE THAT WE HAVE FAILED TO RESPOND TO OR ACKNOWLEDGE. THE PROBLEMS ARISE WHEN WE TRY TO SHUT IT DOWN AND IGNORE IT LEADING TO A DEPRESSION AND A FEELING OF DROWNING.

TODAY THINK DEEP ABOUT YOUR ANXIETIES FACE THEM HEAD ON. WRITE DOWN YOUR FEARS AND DEAL WITH THEM ONE BY ONE. REGAIN YOUR POWER. CONFRONT THOSE FEARS. SEE THE PRESSURES AS A GIFT HUGE WAVES FOR YOU TO GET ON AND RIDE LIKE A SURFER. THOSE WAVES WILL TAKE YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. SOME ANXIETY IS NORMAL IF YOU HAVE NO ANXIETY THEN IT MEANS YOU ARE NOT LIVING YOUR LIFE . GENUINE ANXIETY IS THAT WHICH IS DEBILITATING YOU AND AFFECTING YOUR LIFE SOME OF THAT CAN BE REMOVED BY FACING IT.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: REMEMBER IT WOULD BE ABNORMAL NOT TO FEEL ANXIOUS BUT IF YOU FEEL IT HAS BECOME UNMANAGEABLE OR AFFECTING YOU ON A DAILY BASIS THEN TALK TO SOMEONE SOMETIMES TO GET IT OUT OF YOUR HEAD CAN HELP ENORMOUSLY WITH MENTAL HEALTH

YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF INSPIRATION, TASKS AND WORDS TO UPLIFT YOU AND BUILD MENTAL STRENGTH AND CLARITY FOR THE WEEK AHEAD.

MENTAL HEALTH: START TALKING

NEXT TIME YOU ASK SOMEONE HOW THEY ARE DOING SHOW A REAL INTEREST IN THE ANSWER, DONT JUST ACCEPT “FINE”.

THE MENTAL HEALTH FOUNDATION BELIEVE THAT HALF OF ALL ADULTS IN UK BELIEVE THEY HAVE A DIAGNOSABLE MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM. EVERY WEEK 1 IN 6 OF US EXPERIENCE FEELINGS OF ANXIETY OR DEPRESSION. SO THE CHANCES THAT SOMEONE YOU ASK “HOW ARE YOU REALLY DOING?” THEY THEN WON’T BE ABLE TO RESPOND IN A ONE WORD ANSWER. IF YOU ARE WORRIED TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO OPEN UP TO YOU.

“CAN WE TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ?”

“WHO WOULD YOU BE COMFORTABLE TALKING TO, IF NOT ME?’

“IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE GOING THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME. HOW CAN I HELP YOU FIND THE HELP YOU NEED?”

“I AM SOMEONE WHO CARES AND WANTS TO LISTEN. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO KNOW ABOUT HOW YOU ARE FEELING?”

TODAY TRY ONE OF THESE QUESTIONS IN RESPONSE TO SOMEONE WHO YOU MAY FEAR IS NOT JUST “FINE”.

REACH OUT TODAY.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND ARE SUFFERING PLEASE TALK TO SOMEONE TODAY. IF NOT A FRIEND OR RELATIVE THEN CALL MIND 0300 123 3393.
