News on Social Media
It is normal to think that when confronted with a medical issue good news regarding your health could ease stress and anxiety. Personally, I found myself very surprised to find that after the initial elation of good news after the initial excitement, the "down" feeling set in. It was like the good news was just too much. It seemed like an odd reaction and after thinking about it I found myself inspired to write this piece. Who would have believed that good news could generate anything but happy feelings? Let's explore the dynamics of bad news and good news. (I covered what to do when you receive bad news in a prior article.) The enemy of anticipation is that it creates stress and anxiety. If diagnosed with a severe or life-threatening illness the concentration is on the treatment. The anticipation is that the treatment will be successful , or at the very least, hope of it being. But this is only the beginning. In the end, doctors will test to see whether the treatment is working or not. The wait and anticipation for that initial test is both difficult and emotional. Your family and friends are doing the same process... and waiting. The shared experience could be a source of support, or it's that you're responsible for their feelings as well or someplace in between. In anticipation, you build up nerves as well as negative projections and a sense of responsibility for how other people will feel. You get good news! The treatment is working. A wave of relief can be felt by all. There is happiness, celebration, and expectations for being well. The truth is that waiting games are just beginning again for the next check-up and test of your health. The results of the next test will follow. Visit:- Perhaps it is good news but you could also get negative news. The anticipation rises again. Your loved ones and you are anxious, at risk, and possibly a bit burned out with the situation that you are aware will continue until the health crisis ceases. The cycle is repeated and the anxiety increases, particularly in the case of a bouncing between positive and negative news. Now I can understand the "down" feeling after receiving positive news. The expectation fire has been lit once more for yourself as well as those around you. The expectation leads to anticipation which can cause anxiety, stress and various other feelings. The feeling of being down after hearing positive news is also a means of protecting yourself from the yo-yo effect that comes with the cycle of both positive and negative news. If you're not overly happy, it's not going to hurt at all if the news is negative or neutral (more to wait for). If you are one of those who feel responsible for others' feelings it's possible that you won't even get the celebratory experience. A feeling of sadness or neutrality after positive news can shield you from disappointment, helps you avoid upset, and protects you from future forecasts regarding your health condition. You know the mechanism and the process that causes anticipation as well as the source of mixed or negative feelings after receiving positive news. Do you feel it is okay to deal with news about your health status with this approach? Of course it is! There isn't any right or wrong with emotions. Every person handles these feelings in their unique manner. A friend of mine told me that remaining neutral with the good and bad news is healthy. The absence of major ups and downs helps the body stay at peace and in healing mode. The process and cycle of coping with health issues can be described as that is a cycle and a process... your life. Staying present also helps reduce the need for anticipation. It means paying attention to what's happening right now, rather than being focused on what has occurred in the past, and making projections about what could be happening or will take place in the future. The projections won't help unless you're employing positive imagery to work to your subconscious through Hypnosis, for instance it is extremely effective to calm the body, mind and emotions and keep you present in the now. In the end, the present is all that you, your family, and even your family members can handle and staying in the present moment makes everything more manageable. Practice: If you find yourself anxious about the future or from previous events or predictions for the future, then you should take action! Relax in a comfortable place and close your eyes. Take three or four slow breaths. If your mind is moving or you are experiencing negative emotions, you can simply observe these feelings. There is no "fixing" is necessary. As you breathe slowly, let your body begin to ease. Your limbs might appear a bit heavy. your back will be free of tension and your neck will release along with your hands and feet. Your heart rate might slow when you relax. Be aware of how you feel, the thoughts, and your feelings. There is no action to take except to observe. Simply breathe and pay attention to either your left or right foot. Notice your toes, heal arched, ankle, and heal. Draw your attention up your calf and shin just behind the knee and then in front of your knee towards your thigh and buttocks. Be aware of your hip. Maintain a steady breathing. Pay attention to your hip to your thigh. Then, look into your lower back, into the small part of your back along your spine and towards the side of your back. Notice your abdomen and belly. Pay attention to your chest and the movement of your chest as you breathe. Notice your shoulder, drawing your eyes down from your arm to your hand and observe each finger. Retract your attention back to your shoulder and become aware of your neck and throat. Then move your awareness to that part of the face, including your jaw, mouth eye, forehead, the ear as well as your forehead. Take note of the back of your head, ascending to you scalp's top. Then shift your attention to the opposite side of your body. let your attention flow downwards from your head and scalp , all the way to your toes. That's it. You will have an experience of being present with your body. Your mind will be quiet and you'll be able to relax. If you'd like, you can move your awareness about your body for 2 or 3 times , which will make your experience more intense. This helps to relax emotional balance, as well as being presentin the moment, the space from which you will be able to handle the experience of managing a health crisis.
