People Aren't Thinking About You... And it's a good thing

So simple, but such life-changing advice! I love that Lilah Higgins shared this today for our Anxiety Relief from 17 Self-Care Pros series.

One step at a time. You don't have to do everything or be everything to everyone. Find out what you love and do those things, let everything else fall down your priority list.

Try to tune out the noise and what you assume people think of you. They're most likely not thinking of you at all and it's easier to function when you realize that.

Get a coach or someone who can mentor you honestly.

Beat Shoulder Pain & Muscle Tension from Anxiety

Don’t we all suffer from tension in the back and shoulders? It’s certainly where I feel stress the most. Katie gives us a fabulous pose to try as she rounds out our Anxiety Relief Tips from 17 Self-Care Pros series.

I carry a lot of tension in my shoulders. When I'm feeling especially anxious I do a yoga move called Garudasana Arms (Eagle Pose).

Inhale and take the arms out to the sides and up to shoulder height. Exhale and cross the right elbow over the left and bring the hands together, either palms together or hooking the fingers around the mound of the thumb.

Extend from the middle of the back between the shoulder blades out through the elbows, spreading the shoulder blades away from the spine. Lift the elbows up with the fingers and forearms pointing straight up towards the ceiling, and take the upper arms parallel to the floor.

Lift and broaden the top of the chest up into the space created by the forearms coming together. Spiral the forearms around each other, rolling the upper forearm and palm away from you.

Hold the position for several breaths.

Bring the arms back out to the side and repeat, bringing the left elbow on top this time.
