One Simple but Life-Changing Way to Deal with Anxiety

3

One, Simple, Life-Changing Way to Deal WIth AnxietyI was busy doing my normal household chores when I got a call from my daughter. When I answered, all I heard was heavy breathing. I suddenly knew something was wrong and as much as I tried to get her to tell me what was wrong, all I heard were heavy breaths and silent sobs.

“Honey, I need you to take slow, deep, breaths.”

I didn’t really know how to help her, but I knew she was having an anxiety attack. I’d have given anything to be with her in that moment so that I could physically help calm her. The only thing connecting us was an invisible phone line and I had to use it to the best of my ability.

I continued to sit there silently, encouraging her to take big, deep, slow breaths. Eventually, after about 5 minutes she was able to calm her self.

Her anxiety was real, and if you suffer from anxiety, then you know that it is real too. I loved this post from Alyssa at Faithleaps. 

Something to deal with anxiety, that's life-changing! #saltandlightlinkup Click To Tweet

Alyssa explains that anxiety happens when you have negative or worrisome thoughts that you can’t shake. She further says that sometimes it feels like your heart is racing and your insides are shaking.

I have a feeling that there are many people who suffer from anxiety in silence, and although I don’t know how this feels, I DO know that there is someone who DOES know and His name is Jesus.

I loved today’s practical feature from Alyssa because she shows readers how to use a prayer journal to deal with anxiety. She not only shows us how to prayer journal, she gives insightful ways that it helps.

If you or someone you know suffers from anxiety, I encourage you to read and share this article. Prayer journaling could be your breakthrough!

  1. Thanks for featuring Alisa’s post, Shannon. I’ve been in the same story you describe. I think I already real Alisa’s post, but something tells me I need to go back and read it again! Thanks so much. Blessings on the rest of your week.

    I had a something similar happen, though I had no idea it was a panic attack until after. I’ve so regretted not knowing how to respond. So glad you shared Alyssa’s experience and the one thing that really helps. Thanks, Shannon. <3

  3. I appreciate your wisdom and shared experience. I’m going to pass this on to someone struggles with anxiety.
