I was listening to a psychologist on the radio today on my way home from yet another trip to the vege shop. She was talking about the flight or fight response and then she added another F word that got my attention – FREEZE !
Although she was talking more about our reactions to dangers and threats I realised that a lot of us react this way most of the time. We feel overwhelmed, busy, stressed, like we have too much on our plate. We know what we need to do – slow down, eat well, get some exercise, be with our friends and families – but how often to we just think we are too busy to even contemplate making some changes, even though we know we will feel so much better for it. I guess we just freeze because we don’t know how to approach something that can feel overwhelming. We get stuck and instead of doing something, anything.. we feel blocked and end up feeling powerless to do the things we know we need and want to do.
Can I suggest that what you may need is a bit of a shake up ?? Maybe you just need someone to take the reins for a while and help you get back on track. We all need help sometimes, it takes courage and strength to ask for it.
None of us has the answers and none of us are perfect but we can make small, or sometimes big, changes which can have a profound impact on how we feel, our energy levels and our general happiness.
Call today to see how I can support you in the changes you want to make in your life. Let’s get your health and wellbeing back on track.
