Maja’s tip for dealing with anxiety

Anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. When you notice some uncomfortable feelings, try to take a moment to check in with yourself.

Ask, “What am I feeling? What’s going through my mind right now?” Noticing in this way allows for an opportunity to take a step away from the experience and remind yourself that thoughts are just thoughts, not facts.

Include some mindfulness in your daily life. This can be as simple as paying deliberate attention to how that morning cup of tea tastes, or really listening to the lyrics of your favourite songs. Or take try a meditation course or yoga classes.

Checking in with yourself as you go through your day helps cultivate mindfulness, which then grows your ability to observe rather than react to your thoughts and feelings.

Outside the therapy room

You can find Maja making art and wandering around art galleries like White Rabbit in Chippendale, taking in inspiration. She loves a dip in the ocean, hanging with family and friends, checking out live music and is currently trying to master the headstand in yoga class.

What I’m Reading…

ART, LIFE AND THE OTHER THINGS – ASHLEIGH WILSON

I’m currently really into artists’ biographies. At the moment I’m enjoying Brett Whiteley’s biography Art, Life and the Other Thing by Ashleigh Wilson. It offers a great insight into not only his life as a bohemian and development as an artist but also his journey with drug use, addiction and his struggle with recovery.
