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

Just a Picture To Inspire You On This Cold January Morning

POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND INSPIRATION TO GET YOU THROUGH THIS COLD JANUARY WEEK. IM HERE JUST WHEN YOU NEED ME. DONT FORGET THERE ARE MANY MORE MANTRAS ON THIS BLOG TO DIP INTO WHENEVER YOU NEED STRENGTH AND HOPE .

HOW ABOUT A HUG ?

I HEARD AN INTERESTING STATEMENT TODAY. HUGGING RELEASES DOPAMINE AND CAN INCREASE THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH OF THE ‘HUGGER’ AND ‘HUGGEE’ IN A HUGELY POWERFUL WAY. IMAGINE HAVING ALL THAT POWER IN YOUR ARMS TO CHANGE THE LIFE OF SOMEONE (AND YOURSELF) IN SUCH A DRAMATIC WAY………AND SO EASY TO DO ! HUGGING CAN RELIEVE STRESS AND ANXIETY AND BRING DOWN BLOOD PRESSURE. LOWER DEPRESSION AND REDUCE FEELINGS OF LONELINESS.

PLEASE HUG YOUR CHILDREN ON A DAILY BASIS (EVEN HOURLY) IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH AS THEY DEVELOP AND IT HELPS TO CREATE A STRONG BOND. A HUGGED CHILD IS A HAPPY CHILD. VERY OFTEN IN THIS TIME VALUABLE OVER STRESSED TIMES AS A PARENT IT IS VERY EASILY OVERLOOKED. MAKE TIME. WHEN A CHILD HAS A TEMPER TANTRUM INSTEAD OF SHOUTING AT THEM JUST HUG THEM AND HOLD THEM CLOSE. IT WORKS , I PROMISE YOU.

SO TODAY I WANT YOU TO HUG AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE FOR AT LEAST 20 SECONDS BUT MAKE IT A MEANINGFUL HEARTFELT HUG. A WORD OF WARNING IF YOU ARE HUGGING A STRANGER OR SOMEONE YOU FEEL NEEDS IT BUT YOU DONT KNOW THEM WELL , PLEASE ASK THEIR PERMISSION FIRST. NOTE HOW WELL THIS MAKES YOU FEEL TOO IT IS MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL.

JOJOS STYLIST TIP: EVERYONE FEELS BETTER WITH A HUG ALL HUMANS THRIVE ON TOUCH AND INTIMACY UNLESS OF COURSE YOU ARE JANET STREET PORTER WHO NOTORIOUSLY HATES IT ! BUT HEY LOOK HOW GRUMPY SHE IS ! LOVE YOU THOUGH JANET XX
