When Anxiety Comes

When anxiety sneaks in,

breathe deeply and don’t fight it.

Breathe slowly in for four…

and slowly out for six…

Repeat the slow breathing

until your body relaxes,

your nervous system calms down,

and your brain stops being triggered.

Then whisper to yourself:

“I am safe”

“I am loved”

“I am enough”

And when the anxiety returns,

breathe deeply and whisper:

“Welcome my friend, I know you by now.

Let’s breathe slowly together again,

until you as well

feel safe, loved and enough…”
