Learning to shrug my shoulders…

‘Shrug your shoulders!’ Honestly, it will calm the anxiety! 

This past week i’ve been working on telling myself ‘shrug your shoulders.’ 

I seem to be really good at working myself up into a flap and not good at calming down. I stress about stupid, unimportant things. Things that, if i’m honest, stressing does nothing to help. 

I’ve been learning simple things. Things like; when i notice i’m beginning to stress, i stop, shrug my shoulders, and remind myself that in the big scheme of things, it doesn’t matter. 

It’s worked wonders for my mental health! Of course, none of this would be possible without our great and loving God, who so generously provides rest for us in his loving arms.

For that i am so thankful.
