Being Outside (Anti Anxiety)

Being aware of the sights and sounds:

Silence permeates the Forrest, the air hangs thick and fresh, a bird call, the tree, rock, water and hill.

It all fills the landscape with space, a beauty that roams free.

The calm, still, silence in nature captures the awareness of my whole self to deflect any worry I may harbor for the future.

To stand tall, outside my anxiety with high energy inside my body, I push myself to step towards the object of my depression.

Another words, I use my energy to act by doing the thing my anxiety engulfs.

I walk strongly, calmly towards and through the object of my anxiety.

I slowdown only to refocus my intention to do the things I am anxious to do until I am done and home to a safe place to rest.

I call it my anxiety workout.

I strive to use my high and moderate energy level every time I am anxious to do the ‘anxiety workout’.

I practice my anxiety workout to develop the habit in my day to day affairs.

I feel the inner landscape of my Anti Anxiety as a balm against any fear of freezing with anxiety.

I don’t worry about anxiety, I embrace it with all I am able to be in the moment.

Anxiety is truly a state of mind that comes and goes with some regularity, but remains forever an experience to use as a practice like a form of active meditation.

Anxiety is something to feel while I perform the everyday action of my day to day affairs.

It rises and falls like the tide.

I do not drown in it, I swim through it.

Anxiety is an addition to my awareness.

It is a counter weight that slows me down to a speed that allows me to see, feel, and sense in greater detail.

As a writer or human being, anxiety enhances being who and what I do to the degree that makes me clear in more moments rather than less.

Anxiety seems to make me clearer, sounder, calmer, still, silent, without harm toward myself or others.

Yes, I need to work through it like homework.

Yes, I spend my energy doing it on the regular basis.

Is it worth doing? Yes.
