Whether I have the beginning of a headache, the tight feeling in my chest when anxiety starts, the dark cloud of negativity or the smothering effects of feeling overwhelmed I have found that if I STOP what I’m doing, DROP on my knees to pray (physically or spiritually) and ROLL away from the difficulty I can usually stop it from escalating.
I have found that just as water dowses fire, doing one or all of these techniques work wonders in stopping the cycle:
- Cognitive therapy:
- EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping)
- Talk Therapy
Remember to STOP, DROP AND ROLL the next time you are headed towards an emotional fire.
