Anxiety – Creating Your Own Space

What is anxiety? It’s experienced as an overwhelming feeling, an unpleasant state of mental uneasiness or concern about some uncertain event. It’s a state of restlessness and agitation, often accompanied by a distressing sense of oppression or tightness in the stomach.

Anxiety has been experienced by all of us. I can tell you, I was a very nervous child and it’s taken me all my life to this point to learn tools from Eastern practices and philosophies to calm and balance my nervous system and continue to learn more.

Living in the modern has it’s positive aspects as well as negative aspects. Life has led me running around multi tasking and finding little time to myself. My personality is one who is social and loves interacting with people. But after a while if I haven’t found time to myself I feel an overwhelming feeling of anxiety and exhaustion. Do you feel this way too? At times I desire to be alone, not wanting to be around anyone but myself. Don’t misunderstand me, I love having a varied and fun life.

But I realized I have to keep a regular visit to a space in my home or somewhere in nature where I can sit and meditate without any interruptions, or any dialogue with anyone or disturbances from any modern communication devices such as mobile phones and including a radio or tv nearby.

You don’t have to wait until you have a spare room, the space doesn’t have to be huge. To give you an example of where I have a space at home in our two-bedroom apartment. One is a mediation chair in our bedroom where I can go to and meditate daily and the other is the balcony, which overlooks palm trees and a flower garden. I take my cushions and rug, lie or sit, read and meditate or even sleep if I want. I get a chance to retreat inwards and take time for self-reflection, balance and rejuvenation.

Living close to Bondi Beach my husband and I make a point to get to the beach in the mornings as often as we can during the week and weekends. We love going for walks, swims, exercise and meditation. We feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful city where we can have access to nature so quickly.

Anxiety can sometimes keep us from interacting with the world and experiencing life to the fullest, from our pure heart and live out our full potential.

Discuss your desire with a friend or partner to help support you, motivate you to meditate, exercise and spend time with nature.

Try finding your spot in nature and visit it as often and regularly as you can. Remember your time in nature, the silence, the beauty and fresh air? How grounding, balancing and rejuvenating it is for you? It definitely helps with any form of anxiety and depression.

My intention is to share our experiences with others, to help inspire one another and strengthen our community. Leave a comment below if you like.

Take care!

With love and service to you,
