My motto is Dream Big, Reach High
Dreams are not just for little girls, but those who believe in themselves and are not afraid to go to the next level, in spite of the odds. It is fear and anxiety that prohibits a person from fulfilling their dreams.
Fear is an unpleasant, often strong emotion, caused by anticipation or awareness of danger.
Anxiety can be intense, excessive, persistent, worry and fear about everyday situations. A fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating, and feelings of tiredness may occur.
Both can highjack the mind and plant doubt which can hold you in bondage from your future.
The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), reports that anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year. Anxiety disorders affect 15.1% of children between 13 and 18 years old. Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at a higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.
Prayer and the proper treatment is the key to peace and tranquility in your mind and emotions.
As we are approaching the holidays, what better time to draw closer to God and find your place of serenity. If you are dealing with stress and anxiety, talk with your parents or guardian. Do not try to handle this by yourself.
Spend time with family and refuse to allow stress to consume you. Take this opportunity to enhance family traditions. If you don’t have a tradition, then start your own
Here are some things to do during the holidays:
• Game night with family and friends.
• Movie night with family at the nearest matinee.
• Cook a special recipe to share with the family.
• Have a girls day or night with pampering and fun.
• Plan a weekend getaway with family to a cozy cottage. These are all fun things to do and will keep your mind free from stress. Most important, have some me time and rest before going back to your normal routine.
