Decreasing Anxiety Workshop
Different people are affected by stress in different ways. Stress tends to exacerbate our natural tendencies, throwing us farther and farther from center. Reducing stress requires us to find ways to restore our emotional balance, to come back to center. What helps one person reduce stress may not work for someone else.
If you are high energy, intense, and often categorized as a “Type A” personality, you operate from your nervous system pretty much all the time. It doesn’t take much to make you feel stressed and anxious and when you do, you feel scattered in a million directions. Your normally high energy rises even higher and you feel completely ungrounded and all over the place. Like fire and air, you are blown about, rising and dispersing. For you, stillness is a powerful means to reduce your stress and anxiety because stillness allows all the scattered aspects of you to settle back into oneness. Stillness with your heart facing upward is particularly helpful for you because your heart is connected so strongly to the heavens.
