Managing Your Holiday Anxiety: 4 Self-Care Strategies

 

The holidays allow us to pause and truly take time to connect with our families, friends, and loved ones. However, for many of us, it can also mean a great deal of anxiety that stems from myriad sources, such as:

-having to prepare for and host a large holiday party;

-the stressors of financially overextending ourselves on gifts;

-long-distance travel by way of plane, train, or automobile; or

-having to endure those family members that we may truly love, but don’t particularly like or enjoy.

And these are just a few of the reasons that we feel more nervous during this merriest of seasons.

HOW TO MANAGE HOLIDAY ANXIETY

Below are four tips to help you manage this anxiety.

Tip #1: Get sufficient sleep.

The holidays tend to take you out of your regular routine. You and/or your family may not have to get up early to go to work or school, but that doesn’t mean you have to throw your schedule out the window, sleep in until noon, and stay up late. It’s important to get enough sleep every night. Research suggests that sleep deprivation can actually cause more anxiety. So try to stick as much as possible to a regular schedule and get enough sleep so you can recharge your brain, improve your focus, and elevate your mood.

Tip #2: Eat as healthily as possible.

At this time of year, we’re surrounded by candies, chocolates, cakes, and more! As much as possible, try not to overindulge on the sweet treats. While sugar doesn’t cause anxiety, it can make your symptoms worse. Eat balanced meals, and perhaps a small sweet after dinner. This will avoid the rush of energy and sugar crash you get when you go straight to dessert on an empty stomach.

Tip #3: Don’t stop exercising.

If physical activity is a part of your usual routine, it’s important you stick to it during the holiday season. It’s very easy decide to treat yourself by taking a day or week off from the gym. But physical activity works as an excellent anxiety management tool. It takes your mind off your frustrations, and releases mood-enhancing endorphins.

Tip #4: Take a few minutes every day to meditate.

Not only should you foster a healthy body, but you should also foster a healthy mind. One great way to combat and relieve the holiday jitters is to indulge in just a few minutes of meditation every day. Not only will it decrease any depression you may be experiencing, but it has been proven to make people more resilient to stress, reduce stress levels, and relieve emotional pain, all of which will make you much more compassionate to those around you.

So breathe deeply, be present, tune into your body, and remember during those tough anxiety-riddled moments that we all want the same thing. If you’re feeling hurt by a family member, understand that they, like you, are doing the best they can. Pause to center yourself (leave the room if you have to), clear your mind of the overwhelm, and let the feelings and emotions pass through you.

HOW BOSTON’S BEST PSYCHIC MEDIUM CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR ANXIETY

I believe that only when we change our thought patterns, can we change our moods and allow ourselves to heal, physically and spiritually. Our thoughts are powerful and have significant effects on our minds, hearts, and bodies. Guided meditation is an excellent way to relieve stress, both the acute (during the holiday season) and the chronic (if you suffer from it every day of your life).

I have been giving psychic intuitive sessions for nearly 30 years, and have helped multiple clients open themselves to mindfulness and broaden their understanding of the importance of inner peace in what can sometimes be a chaotic world. I help others understand where their anxiety comes from, how to let it go and not let it impact them, and how to move toward healing.

How To Overcome Anxiety And Unblock Your Psychic Ability

Anxiety can be crippling. It can make people afraid to fly on planes or have trouble meeting new people. Often a sign of depression, anxiety can cause people to stop taking chances in life for fear of failure, of judgment or other irrational fears.

Now imagine a person who is psychic or trying to develop their psychic intuitive abilities. If they are anxious or surrounded by people who do not support them, who ridicule their eagerness towards developing their intuition, will this beginner ever learn to develop their intuition if they are plagued with anxieties about their abilities? Most likely not. 

Luckily, we all have the power within ourselves to battle anxiety. The first step to conquer anxiety is to understand why you feel anxious about something in the first place. Perhaps it’s not just about your psychic abilities, perhaps a fear of embarrassment is at the centre of your anxieties, or a social anxiety, or an irrational fear of being hurt if you leave your home. Whatever the anxiety is, the good news is that all anxieties can be overcome.

Thoughts are powerful, even when they are not psychic. Certain thoughts can make you feel physically ill, just as certain thoughts can make you feel anxious and stressed. How you see the world, how you view yourself in it, how you talk to yourself internally, all impact how you feel emotionally.

One thing I have learned in my struggles to overcome anxiety is that if I can change my thoughts, I can change my mood and enable myself to heal, both physically and spiritually. If I can catch myself in the midst of a negative thought, I can turn it around into a positive one. If I fear something, I know I need to set small goals to face that fear head on.

If someone says something unsupportive or rude about my abilities, I can choose to let it go immediately and not let it impact me. Only when you truly understand where your own anxieties come from, can you completely let them go and move towards healing and developing your psychic intuition.

There are other ways to help reduce stress and anxiety during the healing process and which can help you boost your psychic intuition. Guided meditation is one of those ways. You can find many listening CDs or kits at your local library or book store that focus on relieving anxiety though meditation.

I can recall hearing about one such guided meditation that really worked for a friend of mine. At night before sleep, or any time she had a moment to lay comfortably and relax, she would play a cd that would ask her to picture herself at the bottom of a mountain, about to trek up to the top. Before she started walking, she would have to pick up and put on a heavy backpack filled with her anxieties. All her fears and all her doubts were stuffed inside of it and she had to begin lugging them all up the mountain.

However, the higher she went, the more anxieties she was able to empty out of her back pack. As she got closer and closer to the top, she would take out an anxiety and throw it down the side of the mountain, letting it go completely. She said she would begin to feel lighter and lighter with each mental step. By the time she reached the top of the mountain, she was free of all her anxieties.

Now, of course, change doesn’t happen overnight, but if you want to develop psychic intuition you have to be determined enough to face your anxieties head on in order to reach your full potential. Especially if your anxieties revolve around your psychic ability. When you let go of your fears and anxieties and stop letting other people influence your actions and thoughts, you will gain the confidence and inner calmness you need in order to thrive, both spiritually and emotionally.

The Enemy of Intuition Is Anxiety

The biggest problem that inhibits the healthy functioning of your intuition and psychic ability is anxiety.. There are several reasons why anxiety has a negative effect on intuition. When someone is psychically sensitive and encouraged to use his or her intuition, they learn to trust it and become adept at using psychic ability. If that same person were discouraged or ridiculed, and experiencied negative consequences after displaying psychic ability, it conditions him or her to be anxious or shut down whenever they use or have a need to use their intuition.

Why does anxiety suppress intuition? When you’re anxious, you lose confidence and have more self-doubt. If you get discouraged and lose confidence with your intuition, you start shutting down that area in the right brain. Without having the right brain providing input such as “this feels right to me” or “this sounds right to me,” there’s no sensory input to provide a counter balance to your left brain, and your thoughts.

Another example of why anxiety suppresses intuition is when you have irrational fears. Irrational fears corrupt not only your intuition, but can also negatively affect your thinking and your decision-making. Examples of irrational fears are; a fear of making a mistake, a fear of negative consequences, or a fear of looking foolish.

If you want to manage your anxiety so you can improve your intuition and psychic ability – here are several exercises you can do when you’re feeling anxious. Take slow deep breaths all the way down into the diaphragm. After you take ten slow deep breaths, check in to see if your mind is calmer. Repeat as many sets of ten deep breaths as necessary. Check in to see how calm your mind is after each repetition. Another way to still your anxiety is to focus on the toes and the bottom of the feet. Imagine being on the bottom of each toe and then the top of each toe. Then the underside of the foot, the ball of the foot, under the instep, the heel, and the ankle. Work your way up the body. Stop when you reach the top of the head.

It’s risky to use your intuition when you’re stressed. Your intuition works best when you’re relaxed and centered in your body. Unfortunately, sometimes when we’re anxious, we’re not even aware that we’re stressing. Taking slow deep breaths when you’re anxious can help you to return to a high functioning intuitive state.

 

 

Why Boston’s Best Psychic Intuitive Believes Using Your Own Psychic Abilities May Be The Most Important Thing You Do This 2018

 Do you ever find yourself questioning the point of your life, asking yourself why you’re here, why you’re facing the challenges that emerge, what you are going to do with yourself this year, the next five years, or the rest of your life – but come up empty and without answers? Or perhaps you haven’t gotten to the point of asking yourself these questions, and you simply find yourself in a state of chaos, or living a life of mundane routine, and not passion? If any of this sounds familiar, it might be time to consider using your psychic abilities to start planning your best life.

How can psychic abilities help me plan my life? 

Developing and using your psychic abilities can benefit you in so many ways. It can provide you relief from anxiety and depression, increased inner calm, clarity, mental focus, concentration, and memory, an improved ability to make decisions, and enhanced creativity and psychological well-being.

By tuning into your psychic abilities, you become fully present, plunging yourself beyond the fears and judgments that fill our logical minds. When looking at the simple beauty that is life, removed from the day-to-day clutter and noise, you’re better able to answer any questions you may have, make better decisions, and discover who you really are, and what you’re here in this world to do.

How do I use my psychic abilities to make 2018 my best year yet?

I believe through meditation you can uncover the answers to many of your questions and support the life you truly want to create for yourself. It doesn’t cost anything, and all you need is a few minutes a day.

Sit in a relaxed position in a quiet room at a time you know you will not be disturbed, and relax your mind, your body. Close your eyes. Focus on – and slow – your breathing. Once you’re calm, ask yourself the questions that will help you plan your future, such as:

  • What or who in this life do I value the most?
  • What do I love to do?
  • What have I done in my life that I’m really proud of?
  • If I only had one year left on this planet, what would I want to achieve?
  • Who do I admire most, and why?
  • Where do I want to live, and with whom?
  • What is my life’s purpose?

Or if you have specific questions you want answers to,  you can bring those issues up.

Now listen to the responses your higher self gives you. Remember that the messages can come in a variety of forms, so be mindful of the images, words, noises, and feelings that you experience.

Does everyone have psychic ability? 

As a psychic intuitive who has been in practice for nearly thirty years, I believe the answer is yes. The question is whether you want to acknowledge and develop it. Some people believe they don’t have enough time – or they simply don’t want to make the time. Others are concerned they’re doing it wrong or don’t know how to start.

You can learn it, and you can become your best self and live a satisfying and joyful life. You deserve a life of purpose. Establishing a practice where you dedicate even just a few minutes a day to your psychic abilities could be the single most important thing you do to make 2018 your best year yet.

Boston’s Top Psychic Reveals How Intuition Can Make Or Break Your Holidays

The holiday season gives us the opportunity to take a break from our daily routines. 

Yet even those of us looking forward to time spent over hot cocoa with family and close friends know the season can also trigger some pretty stressful situations.

Maybe you’ve got an aunt who never fails to ask about an ex-boyfriend or your current love life – which she knows is a touchy subject for you. Perhaps you’re concerned you’ll overindulge in the food, partying, and spending, or you just get overwhelmed at large social gatherings. 

Whatever the case may be, you might want to try using your intuition to help you through the next few weeks.

Don’t Be A Slave To Mindless Obligation

One of the biggest problems many of us have this time of year is saying yes to events or another plate of food or spending money on a gift for someone when we don’t really want to – out of mindless obligation.

For example, a toxic cousin of yours invites you to a party. You say yes because, “It’s my cousin. I have to go.”

There’s a co-worker whose feelings would be crushed if you don’t buy her a present, especially since you’re buying one for another co-worker who is your close friend. So you spend your money and time getting her a gift, even though your heart’s not in it because, “I have to. She’d be so hurt if I don’t get her a gift.”

You’re stuffed to the brim after indulging in a substantial turkey dinner, but your aunt says you’ve just got to try her meat lasagna. So you oblige her even though your body tells you no because, “She prepared the meal and worked so hard on it. I have to eat it.”

Sound like you?

Nothing creates more stress than going against what your authentic self truly desires because “you have to.” 

Your Biggest Gift This Holiday Season Is Your Intuition

As one of Boston’s top psychic mediums, I have clients coming to me all the time who feel they need to do something – not because they want to, but because they should.

That “s” word is one of the worst, in my opinion. It usually means you’re putting someone else’s needs, desires, or preferences ahead of your own.

Here’s my advice to making your holidays wonderful:

Check in with yourself before saying yes.

Take a moment, close your eyes, breathe deeply, quiet your mind, and ask yourself if you really want to say yes – to spending time at a particular party, to that fifth piece of pizza, or whatever the opportunity may be.

And listen for your inner wisdom’s response.

That’s you checking in with your intuition – your higher self.

If your intuition says no, communicate this in a very polite way to your loved ones, but stay true to yourself.

By tuning into your intuition, you’ll start to make decisions that are aligned with what you truly want and need. This can go a long way in making your holiday season a happy and joyous one.
