We all worry and get stressed from time to time. It's a normal part of life. But what happens when that anxiety or stress takes over, and you can’t calm down? Being able to calm yourself at the moment is often easier said than done. In this Stay Calm series, we hope these mindful quotes can be an actionable reminder to help you to stay calm & motivate you to think good when you're feeling anxious, stressed or having self-doubt.

Good Things Are Coming
Part of being anxious is having irrational thoughts that are often the worst-case scenario or not necessarily making sense. We might find ourselves caught in the “what if” cycle, which can cause us to sabotage our life. No worries, try to challenge your thoughts instead and reframe your thinking. Have a mantra that you find helpful to use in critical or doubtful situations. This allows the thinking to shift focus, and you can “reality test” the situation. These mantras will give us an opportunity to allow rational thought to come back and lead to a better outcome & positive outlook.

It's Okay To Not Be Okay
For many years, often, I will meet with pep talks and positive affirmations whenever we feel stressed out or sad. It can make me feel like no one listened with empathy to my deepest anxieties. But one response from a mental health focus group I attended stood out: “It’s okay to feel this way right now." When I heard that, I could finally take a breath. I needed to know that it was okay to feel how I was feeling in the moment — rather than bury my emotions and pretend they didn’t exist.

Bloom Where You're Planted
This expression means a person should take advantage of the opportunities they have in their life, to capitalise their talents & gifts regardless of our circumstances and understand that every situation & every step in life prepares you for the next one. In the most beautiful sense, not just for yourself but for those around you too. Look for ways to be a blessing to somebody. Your struggles have prepared you to be in the path of someone that needs what you can give. Now, that is true to bloom & make a difference in our & other's life!
