Episode 325: Advice I Gave My Stressed Out Daughter

mindset May 05, 2023

In today’s episode I share advice I gave my youngest daughter who suffered her first panic attack. Not a fun experience for the person having the attack nor for a mom who never wants to see her kids suffer or be sad or have difficulties in life. 

So in perfect mom-mode, as soon as she messaged me about what was happening, I called her and guided her through a few deep breaths and suggested that she quiet her mind for just 15 minutes after our call. Doing that will get her out of the busy mind and into the silence. (I’m not sure if she did the latter after we hung up, but I know she did the deep breaths because I heard her do them!) 

The 3 pieces of advice I gave her, which I elaborate on in the episode, were:

  • Perspective: The world will go on without you, whether or not you finish all of your tasks.
  • The Ripple Effect: It’s impact is both good AND bad.
  • Misalignment: If you don’t instigate change, change will eventually be forced on you by the universe.

Anxiety attacks are a sign you are on the wrong path in life. They are your soul’s message to you to make a change and get aligned with what makes you happy. They are a big flashing red light to telling you to stop, get quiet, and listen to your heart.

I hope my daughter listens to this sign, but I know only she can decide her right path forward. That’s the hardest part of being a mom - to stand back and let your child figure it out because what I know for sure is that this is journey she is meant to walk and will learn a lot from.
