Even in the most joyful moments of wedding planning, you can feel sad sometimes. You can start to feel the weight of starting a new stage in life, the responsibilities weighing down on you, and finding new problems that you need to solve. This can have a drastically negative effect on your level of calm, sleeping patterns, and even your overall health. Here are three ways that will help whatever happens during this period.
Meditation and breathing practices
It may sound strange, but you really can save your peace and calm your mind with only breathing and meditation. A simple 3-minute meditation can be very difficult at first. You'll feel your thoughts rush through your head like a Ferrari during a race. But every time you take a moment to disconnect from the world, finding inner peace will get easier. Intrusive thoughts about the future and the growing level of anxiety in your mind will gradually disappear with time.
Your mind and the thoughts in your head shouldn't harm you. If you feel overwhelmed with stress and anxiety and can't figure out what to do to get help, don't hesitate to turn to a therapist for some relief. Sometimes, even a single session with a professional can declutter your mind and give you back your sense of peace and calm.
Writing is a lot like meditation. When you feel your anxiety build up again, just grab a pen and write down a few sentences about how you feel. At that exact moment, you make your thoughts physical, you acknowledge their existence, and you accept them for how they are. Reread these sentences a few days later — you will probably notice that what you feared the most didn't happen and everything turned out fine. Small steps like this one can help you recognize that things are not as scary as you think. Remind yourself that there is nothing dangerous around you and that you are capable of dealing with everything that is coming your way!
