You can relate The Mock Turtle’s rhyme: ‘Will you, won’t you…will you join the dance’ to our real-time need of rejoining life, using caution and safety. Many of us, though, have increased anxiety, and stress. How then to move forward? Mostly, accept the emotions, and learn how to feel anxiety – step outside yourself and experience the emotion. Use self-calming tactics you have learned from your therapist or books. Practice meditative breathing, guided imagery, exercise, and avoid isolation. Most importantly, move forward. We all look forward to getting back out there. Use caution, safety, and logic. Practice ways to self-soothe, and above all – enjoy yourself.
