Acceptance is a process. I think i wrote that before. What i know understand about that starts with a feeling like a slow motion waves gently slamming into me, from the front usually and from the soles of me feet to above my head.

steps to accepting something possibly unpleasant to body-mind:

almost sounds like [Accepting Axiety]

this is a hybrid post... acceptance is what i started to write about, anxiety became the canvas upon which to explore that.

acceptance = practice surrendering = one time all in action

this is about coping w/ anxiety the Accepting vibe is different.

[EDIT THIS all together correctly]

  1. minute one
    1. notice its arrival
    2. if safe enough, assess immediate situation and intentionally breathe in and out
    3. continue breathing.
  2. minutes two-five

    1. find your hands, shoulders and legs, assess their energy levels
      1. if jittery, try to walk
    2. orient yourself to the space.
    3. orient yourself to what you need to do in the immediate next few minutes
    4. try to slow everything down
    5. keep looking around to measure the actual (vs perceived!) risk of the present moment

    6. continue breathing

    7. locate your feet
    8. envision yourself grounding, in detail
      1. place your hands on your thighs if sitting, by your sides if standing, or whevever feels most stable for you
