Uncertainty

Uncertainty Ignites our Primitive Survival Instinct

If we can’t neutralise a perceived threat, we engage in the unhelpful process called “worry”. We grapple with whatever the problem is to find solutions to the threat, but there are none.Does this make us feel better? No, of course it doesn’t – it makes us feel worse. In our need for certainty, we are wired to “catastrophize” – we view or talk of a situation as worse than it actually is.

This leads to worry, which in turn leads to anxiety. The modern brain struggles to distinguish between real threat and perceived threat. The result is that the primitive brain takes over and triggers the primitive survival instinct – fight-or-flight. It asks questions: What is going to happen…?What is around the corner for me…? Should I be doing less…? What if my business is threatened…? What if my livelihood is threatened…? What if my life is threatened…?

The lack of answers can lead to:

  • Anger
  • Aggression
  • Frustration

What can you do to mitigate Uncertainty?

There are a number of things we can do to lessen the effects of uncertainty:

  • Awareness is your superpower – be aware of your feelings and emotions
  • Notice the “worry story” you are telling yourself – try to distance yourself from it
  • Focus on breathing – long slow breaths
  • Recognise the need to rise above fight-or-flight
  • Accept uncertainty – allow yourself to stop the struggle

Stand up to Anxiety with Some Mood-Boosters

  • Exercise and movement
  • Meditation, self hypnosis
  • Achievement-oriented activity
  • Something pleasant or fun
  • Reiki Self Treatments

Just 15 minutes a day, focussing on yourself, will help you regain a sense of balance. The more you practice all these strategies, the better you will become! Thank You for reading this article on Uncertainty, my hope is that you can take away something you can implement straight away.
