It’s easy to feel anxious when thinking ahead to an upcoming demand, project, or task. It’s easy to feel stressed, to worry about the time constraints–especially when time is limited. The pressure is real.

Consider:

  • Anxiety only exists when your thoughts are outside of the present. You will always feel anxious when you look ahead to the future. Always. That’s the only reason why you’re feeling this way now.

  • Focus on what is true:
    • Your anxiety means nothing to your ability to handle this upcoming task. Recall how it always feels this way when you think ahead to an upcoming demand–and you always know what to do at the time of action.
    • Anxiety means nothing to the event itself–it doesn’t mean it will be hard or difficult to bear. Everything feels unbareable when you look ahead. Everything is doable–and often enjoyable–in the moment.

  • Immerse yourself in the present and focus on the one task before you. Trust that you will know what to do when the time it comes–you always do and you always pull through. Every time.
