It’s another free printable – this one is about trusting: choose to trust

Because of years and years (and years) living with anxiety and trying all sorts of things to help, I have a toolkit of calming techniques. I’m always on the lookout for more things that help, and I add to my metaphorical kit whenever I discover something that works for me.
There are times when one technique or tool works better for me than the others. And there are times when something that usually works wonderfully simply won’t do the trick in a particular moment.
That’s why it’s important to have a variety of these tools and techniques, like a buffet we can survey, picking the best-for-us thing at the time.
I’ve compiled ten of my favorite calming techniques into a downloadable and printable pdf for you to have if you wish. As with the other freebies here on my blog, there’s no charge, no need to sign up for anything – simply download the file (and print if you’d like).
You can find the pdf, 10 Terrific Tips for Calming, here.
Wishing you calm.
Even after all these decades of living, I’m still learning about shame. About the power it can have over us. About how it can get tangled up with guilt, and embarrassment, and how we might not even recognize that what we’re truly feeling is shame.
But one thing I know is this: shame can be destructive and devastating.
When I started to realize how, far too often, I felt shame (even when I thought I was feeling embarrassment or guilt instead), I started to become more intentional and deliberate about being on the lookout for shame – and not giving it a foothold.
As a reminder to myself and others, I took a photo of a small part of one of my much-larger canvases where I play with acrylic paint, and I made a shame-free zone printable.
It’s yours if you’d like to print it out. As with the other printables on the blog (you can find those here – be sure to go back to the “older posts” to see them all) there’s no charge, nothing to sign up for, no strings attached. Just download and print as you wish. The file is in .pdf format, which you can resize to suit your needs.

Treat yourself – and others – with kindness and gentleness and grace… not shame.
