For this Exercise, choose the best room in your house to hear sound. If possible, have a window open for the duration. Take a notepad with you; make yourself comfortable; giving yourself two or three minutes to relax. Have a clock or timer with you and notice the time the Exercise begins, so you know when to finish. When you are ready, try to become aware of the sounds near and far. Avoid focussing on specific ideas; let thoughts naturally enter your mind and try to let sounds further away filter through. List the sounds you hear in your notepad over the ten – minute period. Using the list, write a short entry in your Journal turning the sounds into a narrative detailing the world around you. Describe the sounds as much as possible in the order they occurred.
This exercise has been adapted from the course material; find out what sounds made up my world when you purchase 'Direct Action Change Now Anxiety Course'.
Anxiety and stress is a mental process, and to some extent a cognitive procedure, which when handled appropriately will help you deal with some situations well. However, it can also have an adverse affect if when the body reacts to a situation it responds in the wrong way. Life-coaching can reverse this process quickly using similar techniques to those outlined in this Exercise ; to book a session, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07544 899 681.
