This week I am joined by Life Coach Emma Grier we discuss how actors and creatives can manage stress and anxiety and deal with change and uncertainty (especially right now!)
Emma is currently taking on new coaching clients and for those who are struggling financially at the moment she is offering a 'pay what you can' rate. If people are interested in having some coaching or want to get in touch with Emma they can do that through Linkedin, Twitter, Instagram etc. Find Emma on social media: Instagram: @emagrier Twitter: @emma_grier Linkedin: Emma Grier
Circle of Influence: Draw one circle in the middle of the page and write or draw what you can control in it. Then around that circle write or draw everything you can't. Reflect on what you've written/ drawn and how this might influence how you want to spend your time and what you want to focus on.
Free writing: Set a timer and write for 5-10 minutes without stopping and without judging what you've written. Then you can read it, throw it away, leave it, do whatever you like with it.
Daily practices or exercises for when you are feeling anxious:
-Write down 3 things you did well today
-Write down 3 things you're grateful for today
Connecting to your senses: (With eyes closed or open) Notice 1 thing you can hear, 1 thing you can smell, 1 thing you can see, 1 thing you can feel and 1 thing you can taste.
