Follow these five steps to release anxiety and overwhelm.
1. Take a break and push the pause button on your life. A retreat gives you time to clear your mind and gain clarity.
2. During your break. Take time in nature and journal each day. Get clear on the things that are working in your life and what you want.
3. Make a plan to restructure your lifestyle. Make a realistic plan that is simple and easy to follow. Work your plan by focusing on what you want. Spend time each day in meditation focusing on what you want to create.
4. Make time in your schedule to move your body. This can be dancing, walking, jogging, yoga, or biking. Whatever has meaning for you--create a plan and just do it! Moving your body keeps stuck emtions moving and avoids the feelings of frustration, fear, and overwhelm.

National blog day to make a difference is October 15. Al Gore was just awarded a nobel prize for his work with global warming. Many still deny any relationship between global warming and emissions and co2. Yet, extreme weather conditions are happening daily if anyone is aware. For the first time in history the summer was so extremely hot that the northwest passage is open for shipping. Fires in the west, in Florida, and more hurricanes than ever in history with typhoons in China, and tsunami's leave our world in turmoil.
Still in reading blogs I have noticed that some still deny a relationship with our changing weather patterns and global warming. It is apparent that our leaders are not concerned with our health and environment--simply money, and power. Until we wake up and decide to make our voices heard and demand that our leaders take steps to produce healthier alternatives for transporation our future is unsure.
The technology is available for producing electric and other alternative fueled cars. In a state like Arizona the technology is available for solar energy yet the solar cells are still not affordable for mainstream. What can we do to make a difference? Direct our money where our values are. Don't buy new vehicles, until the industry produces vehicles that are better for our environment.

Creating peace in a world with environmental changes and disasters, economic and financial change and uncertainty--is a challenge. Love's Secret offers tools to create inner peace in the midst of the chaos. World peace starts with creating inner peace.
October 15 is national blogging to make a difference and this year it is focused on the environment. What can we all do to make a difference? The first step is take individual responsibility to create inner peace and take action to send that inner peace into your community, state, country and then to the planet. Take action steps each day to take your power back from packaged foods and buy locally. Purchase foods, herbs, and products that are produced as close to your home as possible. Eat at home and avoid take out and driving to eat out. Recycle your plastics, cans, and cardboard. This is a practice that takes some time and for many has not yet become a habit. Demand electric car alternatives and plug in technology for our cars. Our environment will not change until we stand up and take action and demand car makers to create cars that are more environmentally friendly. We can reduce the co2, if we all speak up, speak out and take action and only then will we be heard.
Take action to take your power back from chaos and habits that rob your inner peace. Once you have more inner peace you will have more energy to take action steps for the environment. Decide what you want in your life and commit 15 minutes each day to visualize our world at peace and then see yourself living your life at peace, in tune with the law of attraction. Once you know what your want and commit your energy to it you will create it.

You may not be as lost as Britney, but still experiencing emotional pain, and need some tools. Love's Secret offers proven emotional self help to focus your self and your energy.
Love's Secret, similar to The Secret, and both relationship self help books, offer answers about the wife relationship role, and the husband relationship role, and how to focus on love. Self therapy tools are offered in Love's Secret and today's tip is to remain present and take your emtions off auto-pilot. An easy tool to stay present is also referred to as self yoga. Yoga means union so as you create union within your body, mind, and spirit, it becomes easier to stay present.
To take your emotions off auto-pilot you must create more union within with your self yoga. This means becoming aware of words, thoughts, and habits that cause you to either shut down or create inner battles. When thoughts spin out of control within this creates anxiety, depression, and frustration. As you take you power back from habituated thought patterns and habits it becomes easier through self yoga to create inner peace.
Practice self-yoga today and repeat the mantra "I choose to feel safe, and experience inner peace." Notice any thoughts that might arise that try to pull you out of inner peace. As you notice these thoughts through your self yoga stay centered and choose to release the thoughts. Notice your reaction to life and your relationships and keep bringing yourself back to "inner peace."

Why reach for drugs and alcohol to numb your emotions? Most would agree that they reach for drugs and alcohol to numb painful emotions. Emotional Freedom Technique is a proven tool to disolve old hurt and trauma and assist in taking your power back from addiction.
Love's Secret tip for the day to stay focused on love is to learn which emotions you are avoiding. You may learn that you are addicted to certain emotions and attract situations that recreate these emotions.

You will discover emotions that you recreate often, and then shut down with drugs and alcohol. Once you become familiar with how you are creating your emotional hell then you can contact someone professisonally to assist you to remove the emotional addiction that causes you to reach for your substance addiction. This can be drugs, alcohol, food, sex, or relationships there are many different addicitons.

Love's Secret offers hope for all ages to release pain and drama and create love. The tip today is to own your emotions and learn that you are not your emotions. Learn to breathe and resist the urge to shut down and disown whatever you are feeling. Yoga, tai chi, jogging, tennis, handball, biking while you are feeling you emotions will help to move the emotions and then release them. Shutting down and numbing emotions only postpones the pain and is not a solution.
Next time you are feeling sad, angry, hurt, dissappointed, guilty, fearful or anxious take the opportunity to move the energy by taking a walk. Name the emotion and as you walk make a conscious decision to let it go ie, I am releasing this fear with each step and choosing to feel safe.
