Keep it Simple (and Clean)

This tool comes from Robert Powers, a counselor/therapist who has wonderful ideas:

Hi,
I enjoyed going through your card set, and I have an exercise to add. When anxiety flares up pick any simple activity you can finish in less than 30 minutes: empty the dishwasher, sweep the porch, take out the trash. Completing any task gives us the feeling that we have power and are in control, and action breaks the stuck feeling that often comes with anxiety.

Best,
Robert
 
So, the next time you're feeling stuck or when anxiety tightens its grip, get busy. Get clean and clear!
 
Be well!
