    Thanks for the tag @Emilia M. Ludovino. I respect your professionalism and sense of responsibility by writing: "Please note I am neither a psychiatrist nor a psychologist if your anxiety is severe or debilitating please seek appropriate professional help." And: "There is no one way to settle anxiety, and each person responds differently to anxiety and to the techniques available." After this, I can say that your list is sound and offers thoughtful opportunities to consider in our day to day needs to gain control over our emotions. I highlight two of your points: 1. Awareness is crucial to maintaining control over our emotions. 2. Learning to listen to our emotions as communicating to us, bringing something to our awareness, can also reframe our experience and avoid moving into a reaction which an emotion can cause.

    #7 Hi dear @Gert Scholtz! It's always a pleasure to have your feedback. You're so right when you said that stress and anxiety are increasing to the detriment of mental and physical health. And in a lot of situation people suffering from anxiety and over stress just prefer to pop a pill instead of learning out to cope with it in a more natural way. Like exercise more, go for a walk in the nature, learn and practice any kind of meditation, etc. You with you wonderful articles about your surroundings can inspire people to go outside and have more health habits. Little healthy habits can do a great good. Thank s for reading Gert. Fijne weekend!

    Obviously, this may not work for everyone nor, for that matter, more than a few, but when I feel myself getting anxious, I ask very consciously "What could be the worst possible thing that could happen?" And if the answer is something other than fatal, I remind myself that, one way or another, it can be managed.

    FWIW, I have also determined in my life not to worry and stress over things that have not yet happened or not yet even imminent. My experience is that significantly more than 50% of potential problems do not ever come to pass. So if you stress over all possibilities, however remote, you will spend more than half your time worrying about nothing. And even in those cases where bad consequences do come to pass, following this path means that you eliminated a lot of useless worrying anyway. Cheers!

    When my daughter was very young, she used to describe those butterflies as a "bonkie in her tummy." She was born with an exaggerated sensory response to sudden noises...I can't tell you how many birthday parties we had to leave prematurely because someone popped a balloon. Her anxiety was rather extreme, however we have engaged in many of these techniques and quite a few modifications of our own to avoid medicating her...at times that too has been necessary. But sometimes, we just had to let her cry it out...I realized that children dealing with such powerful emotions are like open conduits to all the sensory input around them....they are unable to mute it as we tend to as adults. When they are at school among so many other children with their chaotic energy it is like being thrown into a snake pit! My little girl would come home sometimes after school and just lie across my chest for an hour or so and sob uncontrollably...Now, at thirteen, she's too cool to have me pick her up at the front door! Fortunately, most of the time given the proper coping skills, they grow out of it;-)

    24/02/2017 #3 Ian Weinberg
    Thanks @Emilia M. Ludovino for sharing another insightful appraisal of an important subject. The problem with anxiety and it's nastier big brother, 'panic', is that the amygdala (the seat of fear, anxiety, panic and rage) mediates its effects by secreting adrenaline-noradrenaline and cortisol, which in turn stimulate the amygdala. So you end up with an amygdala 'locked-in' spiral where one is a sustained victim of flight/fight. The only way that you can wind out of this spiral is through a 'break-state' - a diversion of attention, as you correctly point out. The second factor conspiring against us in the anxiety state is that the somatic symptoms of anxiety are invariably more forboding than the thing that actually triggered the fear in the first place. Hence when we administer Beta-blockers, by blocking the symptoms of anxiety but not the mind state itself, we observe a marked improvement in the overall anxiety state.

    You offer a great recipe for dealing with anxiety @Emilia M. Ludovino. I enjoyed all. I liked what you wrote "5 - Focus On Something Else: Distracting yourself from an intense focus on anxiety can also help". This is exactly what I do if somebody is talking angrily. I look the person in the eyes, nod my eyes occasionally let the person know I care and listen.In fact, I don't listen for two minutes and send my mind thinking about other issues. In two minutes anger cools down and then I may be truly listen, observe and think. It seems your prescription applies to anxiety, stress and other negative emotions.

    "Judging others isn't good for us and it certainly isn't good for us if we are to continue living in a civilised society." This is something I profoundly believe, as well, @Deidré Wallace

    If someone is on the planet, we should respect their right to participate in their own life. Structures and rules should be about fairness in access to space, resources, and community.

    How we get to this stage is really to see the hurt of all these wounds, forgive and move on, and then grow a new generation of humans who aren't taught to judge in the open and explicit way we currently conduct our society.

    Once upon a time............We had to live within a very fundamental envelope of existence. News and controversy took months to cross the ocean or continent. Therefore news was mostly local and focused on survival. Today we can type a word and spread it to millions in mere seconds.

    This has brought online millions of opinions that are really no more than superficial facts that have been correlated into a statement. Quite benevolent a few decades ago, but now, it only inflames others who may or may not share the shallow opinion.

    By the time you research the facts the crowd has moved on to different feeding grounds, you can't keep up with facts. Maybe this is the intent your post describes.

    @Julio Angel 🐝Lopez Lopez @Brian Mckenzie and @Javier I agree that passion is the key to life. I also agree that with Francis that we must find ways to stay relevant. If we find passion in what we do, we do not consider what we do as work, so we continue with our passion for life. However, many people are still searching for their passion. We are fortunate that we have found our passion and that we can live it day to day. I find that many of the people I have had the opportunity to read and interact with, on my short time on beBee, are people who have found their passion and who are sharing their passion with others.

    Thought I was semi-retired but the part time job grew - probably took on the extra work out of sheer fear of having no income and monthly retirement cheque won't be arriving for another 16months. Have a stash of 1940s pearls - learnt silk stringing, a bit of photography, some social media stuff, attend some markets and an annual 1940s music festival - this is the retirement plan.....however this last job is pushing my health to the max. ....hanging in and hanging on to reach the magical age of 64 3/4 years for my pension. Many of my contemporaries are not as fortunate and had to give up due to health problems....the gods conspired to not let them experience even a couple of years of being master of their day.

    I have never embraced the concept, or ideology of retirement. There are things that I must do in order to pay the bills, but, I do not consider them a 'career', and I would easily let them go without remorse, if my creative abilities sustained me. There are many things I would do if I had the means and wouldn't idly waste my time regardless of my age.

    #13 You've highlighted the very thin line between anger and danger, @debasish majumder. I think that is why we find it easy to want to ignore these feelings, bury them, and pretend everything is fine. It is incredibly hard to express anger in a constructive way, and yet, learning this skill is pretty crucial for living a contented and meaningful life.

    Knowing the things that draw our ire - the things we will not tolerate - helps us navigate life in a direction that will ultimately bring us to serenity, while ignoring anger is very likely to dump us right into situations that trigger the emotion in ever-escalating cycles.

    Like so many things in life, the way to learn how to deal constructively with anger is to practice and @Cyndi wilkins and I are finding this buddy system to be a fun, fruitful, and sometimes profound way to express feelings, understand life-long patterns, and start to change the way we feel so that we move on, full of hope, curiosity, and delight.

    As a manual therapist by training, I am more accustomed to using therapeutic touch to interpret the signals that the physical body communicates to me. In that way I can assist my client in the release of their pain through soft tissue manipulation. This was more of a cerebral experience where I really had to trust my intuition to guide me ...@Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I were both challenged to engage ALL of our senses...particularly sight, sound and body language, in an effort to tap into the "emotion" trying to make its way to the surface. Once we did that, we could have a little "playdate" with it...give it expression in a supportive environment where it can be transformed through the eyes of others as they reflect back to us the lessons to be learned from our collective experiences.
    These "patterns of behavior" are inherent within all of us. As society has taught us to bury our emotions like an unnecessary appendage, it is high time we did a little excavating of those old bones and shed new light on how we express ourselves effectively.

    #2 Scrubbing bubble buddies of mood, I like the image, Pascal. It is all about moving forward, rather than getting stuck and lingering in resentment.

    #1 Of course, you picked out my favorite sentence, @Ali Anani. And added so much more by extending it to the very important concept of SELF-NEGOTIATION. I actually think that is the core of learning to be a happy and well-adjusted human being.

    Self-negotiation is learning about ourselves and how we react and questioning which parts of our actions and habits may be due to factors way beyond something as innocuous as a comment by a stranger that causes us to lash out in ways harmful to our own bodily equilibrium and meant to throw someone else off of their balance, regardless of who else might be inflicted unintended damage.

    That sort of behavior solves nothing, generates nothing but hostility in return and actually becomes an ever increasing cycle since the actual wrong never had a chance to be rationally discussed.

    I think the first step to being able to find the insight in anger is learning how other people process anger in ways that actually allow the emotion to resolve whatever situation first brought the feelings of hostility into focus.

    Dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich- wonderful buzz. You said it in one line "Being able to express ourselves, and all our emotions, with clarity is part of the dance of negotiation that every human needs to learn to live a joyful, productive, and relatively stress-less life". You bring up to my understanding a hugely important point. We need to negotiate with ourselves as we do with others. Self-negotiation is an idea that strikes me powerfully. Great reading and is worthy of sharing.

    #1 Interesting @Mohammed Sultan, I have been in many group conversations where one person has tried to dominate the conversation. It takes a person with an awareness of the flow of the conversation, to make sure that everyone who wants to join in, can join in and speak. I appreciate your advice as it is very important for groups to make sure everyone is heard.

    Two ways we have to consider to defuse conflict during group discussions ;first ,don't allow the emergence of one of the group to dominate the discussion as h/she will certainly influence other members of the group and thus the validity of the conversation will be questioned.Instead of having a group of say 8 people you will have a group of one and the meeting will look like A ONE MAN SHOW.

    Another thing to consider to diffuse conflict during any conversation is to momentarily shift the conversation to a time when you feel that you will accept and get accepted by others and also when the group can Think and Laugh together.This's how conversations are run between good teams.Thank you @Royce Shook for the share.

    “Beat #stress using the power of the mind.” Easier said than done because stress originates in the #mind. To some, the idea to beat stress seems impossible, so turning to alcohol and medications to get rid of stress offers the most convenience. But it hardly works that way.
