Sitting at the gate in the airport, wondering when my plane is going to board, wondering if I will miss my connection, I realize that I am not alone. Everyone around me is looking at the clock and the door to the ramp and the tension is so thick you can almost see it. It’s 45 minutes past departure time and we are completely powerless.

I’ve been through this scenario many times. Travel is a very uncertain endeavor. I practice self-care by reminding myself that I have the luxury of allowing extra time for my arrival. Others aren’t so lucky.

I have another powerful tool for self-care. I think about what is disturbing me the most right now. Often, it’s images of standing in line and waiting interminably for rebooking. I used to try to calm myself by remembering that I had survived this and worse in the past. It sort of worked, but not very well. Now my tool is the Logosynthesis basic procedure which I show you how to do in “Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®).”

It only takes a few minutes to say the 3 sentences to myself and my stress disappears almost completely. Even as I say the sentences, I recognize how much stress and tension I have acquired from other people. I let that go too.

Get the book, learn the tool, and you can relax too.
