Namaste November: 3 Breathing Techniques Video/Anxiety Rant


Hey everyone! So, I got behind on posting for November because Thanksgiving happened. Then when I got home and was going to catch up on everything, I caught the stomach flu. Super great.

Therefore, instead of writing two blogs to makeup, I’m going to write one blog. A short one. I’m sorry.

I’m going to be honest with you here, after this week my anxiety has skyrocketed. I don’t want to go outside, I don’t want to talk to anyone, and I’m terrified of creating anything. For the past three months or so, I’ve been pretty good at doing something creative every day. Whether it be writing in my book, filming a YouTube video, or writing a blog, I’ve been pretty consistent. After this week, I’m terrified. I’m terrified of writing this now. I’m kind of just typing furiously so if I sound freaked out . . . I am.

This week especially, I’ve involved my breathing. I have to. Whether I’m at a meeting and I’m starting to panic for no reason. Breathe. Trying to convince myself to go to the gym after work. Breathe. Talking to my husband about anything even if it’s something good. Breathe.

Here I’ve inserted a video of myself explaining three different types of breathing. Some of them have really helped me. Some of them I wish I could do at work without looking like a weirdo.

If you don’t want people to think you’re having a panic attack, don’t do skull shining breathing.

I hope all of you are doing better than I am. If you are feeling anxious right now, I’m really sorry. It sucks. I hope these breathing tips work. If not, I hope cuddling under some blankets with a hot cup of cocoa helps.

Good luck everyone. We’re gonna be okay.
