Tip #50 - Get The Bees Out Of Your Head

Posted 1/19/2022

This is another in a series of episodes that touch on tips to help you manage difficult emotions without resorting to emotional eating.  Go back and listen to Episode 27 and 39 if you missed them.

Those who know me well, know that I can often get stuck inside my head. Thoughts, worries, schedules, things I need to do, old conversations and future conversations can swirl around in there like a swarm of bees. The more they swarm, the more overwhelmed I feel and the more my anxiety can take hold.  When these thoughts get flying around inside there, I don’t know which one to grab and focus on and since I don’t know where to start, I don’t start (which tends to compound the problem).

Over the last few years I have discovered an extremely helpful technique for dealing with this swarm of bees and the resulting anxiety and overwhelm.  Listen to today's episode to hear more.
