What do you do when you get anxious about your business?
Welcome to Mindfully Organized Two Minutes Tips. I’m Rose Hawley-Perry, the De-Clutter Your Mind So Your Soul Can Shine Coach, and I’m here to talk to you today about what to do when your fear starts overwhelming you.
If you’re like a lot of people, you’ll do anything except work on what’s making you anxious. It may be time to try another tactic. The next time that anxiety rears its ugly head, try working through it.
What do I mean by that? Do something for your business. Anything! Your mind can’t focus on two things at one time, so if you change your focus from your anxiety to your business you’re doing something more productive.
This actually has a few benefits: The first being that you’re not in anxiety, you’re moving forward, you are creating positive momentum. Even if the things you are working on aren’t the most perfect things to work on your moving forward.
One of the other benefits I want to talk about is the fact that just starting to work gives us direction and a lot of times our anxiety comes up because we don’t have direction. When we focus on one thing and we start getting it done, it allows us to open up and be ready for the possibilities that the universe has to throw at us, and when we’re closed off, and we’re tight, and we’re anxious, we’re not open to these possibilities.
You might even find yourself inspired to change course and that’s okay. In fact, we’ll talk about that a little bit more next week.
This isn’t meant to turn you into a workaholic. This is just meant to focus you. So make sure that you’re doing the things you need to do to take care of yourself, that you’re spending time with your friends and your family. But, if you have time to work on your business and you’re finding yourself stuck in anxiety, I want you to choose to work on something.
