to wish you all a Happy New you - 2024? I have been writing this blog for 5 weeks in my head and just now able to send it out. So much was going on last quarter as I closed my doors in October to travel to Europe for the month and then came back to the hustle and bustle of the Thanksgiving, then preparing for the rest of the holidays, and it all caught up to me.
I got really sick with whatever was going around which had me down for the count. It has taken me this long to recover to be able to breathe in and out without coughing hysterically. This was the sickest I recall being and yet it was a real self coaching and managing my thoughts experience.
Let me share.
I was feeling miserable Christmas eve with a sore throat and a fever I decided to lay down and go to bed. The next thing I remember happening was gasping for air through my clogged nose and scratchy throat which felt like breathing through a pinhole. I was so scared I panicked which caused me to hyperventilate and feel like I was not getting enough air-imagine an asthma attack. I stood up and started to walk while slowing down my breathing, really elongating my breath and as I do with clients when they are in an anxious state. As I did this practice my thoughts began to slow down and I began to calm myself to the point I could be ok with the little sips of air. The fear overcame me in one moment when I wasn't sure if I should call 911 or if this was the end- neither happened. The next several weeks I felt better than relapsed and each time I realized it was up to me to manage my thoughts, control what I watched online, reflect, and visualize the outcome I wanted from this whole experience. This is my deep dive into the coaching mindset along with centering practices that helped me manage my anxious thoughts at a time when I need it the most.
