Taking control of anxiety
May 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00pm on Saturday, repeating until May 8, 2021
When we experience stressful circumstances, we often struggle with strong emotions like anger, pain, anxiety and fear. It feels like they are taking over our lives, and we try to avoid dealing with them for as long as possible. However, suppressing them often results in an uncontrolled pressure-cooker effect: the pot boils over or even explodes, often when it is most inconvenient.
There is an alternative. By integrating those strong emotions into our lives, learning what lessons we can from them, and harnessing the motivation and energy they give us, we can implement real change in our circumstances or grow in our ability to deal with them. This journey will feel uncomfortable at times, but the reward of reaching the destination – a more unified, integrated, cohesive personality and way of living – is well worth it.
Saturday 1 May 14.00 – 16.00 SAST
Managing our habits to control our anxiety:
We will explore daily rhythms as a way of changing us and helping us control our anxiety. This will include an evaluation of our habits, both good and bad, and how we can build on the good, exploring the benefits of solitude, rest and restoration. Again, there will be time to engage in some anxiety reducing practices together such as relaxation exercises.
Saturday 8 May 14.00 – 16.00 SAST
Managing our time to control our anxiety:
We will cover our perceptions of how we use our time, challenge some of our beliefs and explore our emotions about time and look at some practical ideas for time management. There will also be time to engage in some anxiety reducing practices such as contemplation and silence.
The emphasis will be on practical experience of the tools shared so that you leave with authentic, effective tools that you have tried and applied to yourself. These will then be accessible to you in anxiety-provoking situations.
In the personal coaching session (at a time that suits you and the coach) you will have the opportunity to explore further solutions to your challenges so that there is real and practical progress in your ability to manage your anxiety.
Places limited to 10.
