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

OUR SPIRITS CAN BE SIMPLY LIFTED AND WE CAN GAI MUCH REASSURANCE FROM A LOVELY SMILE FROM A FRIEND OR SOMETIMES MORE POIGNANTLY FROM A STRANGER WHO WE ARE SIMPLY PASSING IN THE STREET. BUT TODAY WE ARE BEING SUPER SAFE AND WEARING OUR MASKS WHEN WE ARE OUT AND ABOUT. THIS IMMEDIATELY REMOVES A LARGE PART OF OUR NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION AS WE PASS ONE ANOTHER IN THE STREET. YOU CAN STILL. OF COURSE SMILE WITH YOUR EYES !

MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH MAJOR CRISIS AS A RESULT OF THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC AND MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS ARE INCREASING. SO PLEASE BE KIND WHEN YOU ARE OUT AND ABOUT , AND WHERE YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS IN EATERIES AND THE STREETS BE SURE TO FLASH A SMILE AT PEOPLE THIS IS SUCH A POWERFUL YET SIMPLE ACTION THAT CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE TO SOMEONES DAY. IT PROBABLY HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR US TO CONNECT NON VERBALLY AT THE MOMENT AS WE BATTLE THIS CRISIS TOGETHER.

SO TODAY MAKE SOMEONE FEEL WARM INSIDE AND GIVE THEM YOUR BEST SMILE THIS CAN BE DONE FROM A SAFE DISTANCE. I BET YOU GET ONE BACK !

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: SOMETHING YOU CAN SPREAD WHICH IS HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS……………..YOUR SMILE !
