How to ease your mind and feel calm

Like any runaway train, we need to apply the brakes to slow it down. This method below helps you gently and lovingly apply the brakes and slow you down to get a clearer perspective and idea about what you are feeling and why.

Method to ease and calm


When you first notice your thoughts start to run away gently press pause on them and recognise them for what they are. Notice them and name them.


Allow yourself to feel the feels of your thoughts. Experience what you are feeling without judging yourself or trying to ignore them in the hope they will go away

Dig A Little Deeper

Dive in a little deeper into your thoughts and investigate what’s really going on. Ask yourself what do you need. What is it you need help with? Who can you ask for help? What brought this on? Asking these types of questions helps bring light to what’s really going on.
