They say as a parent it's your job to worry. And as a mom, your worry begins as soon as you find out you're pregnant. You want to make sure you're baby is happy and healthy and that you're making good choices for your baby.
Pregnancy complications give you even more to worry about on top of that.
What's going to happen?
Am I on the right medications?
Am I on the right type of bedrest?
What did that pull or twinge mean?
The list can go on and on.
But what happens when you find yourself worrying about everything? When you can't get out of your head and the "what ifs" pop up no matter what you're doing.
In this audio, I share with you:
the number one reason why we worry constantly (and it's not what you think!)
how worrying constantly is self-protective
how to get the worrying under control
The Short and Sweet
When you're concerned for the safety and wellbeing of your baby, you're going to worry. It's only natural. You want to make sure you're doing everything in your power to protect your miracle.
But constant worrying is just a front.
The number one reason why we worry constantly is because we're avoiding our true emotions.
Worry keeps you in our head. It keeps you in problem-solving mode.
And because our brains can't think and feel at the same time, by worrying, you're suppressing the tough emotions that are coming up, like sadness, fear, anxiety or helplessness.
If you want to worry less, you have to embrace your emotions. Acknowledge what they are and work through them. It's the only way.
Constant worrying is a front for the deeper emotions we have a hard time accepting. (Tweet that!)
