“I had to reduce anxiety when I really messed up today.” Ever have a “beat yourself up moment?” Today, I woke up thinking it was Wednesday but it was Thursday. For 16 years, I’ve taught a Stroller Fitness class every Wednesday which recently moved to Thursdays. My new schedule includes Coaching sessions on Thursdays and I did not show up for that session. Epic fail! I was teaching class thinking it was Wednesday. This happens when new routines are not yet a habit. Don’t beat yourself up, solve the problem with these tidbits.
Failure Anxiety Shows Up
We should reduce anxiety in these situation but instead we:
- Get mad at ourselves.
- Hold onto the mistake instead of letting it go!
- Carry it into the day or worse yet the week for longer than it deserves attention.
- Say “I suck, I failed, I let myself and the other person down who was counting on me. I always mess up. What is wrong with me? “
You feel like a TOTAL FAILURE when you don’t do it!
How to Solve “Failure” Problems
This is exactly the process I go through to fix my mistakes. With practice you will become a superhero at being kinder to yourself. Try this.
2) Apologize and Forgive
3) Alarm Reminder
6) Let it go

Failure is just Data
What doesn’t help
Reduce Anxiety and Stress with this Move
This one move helps you de-stress and reduce anxiety situations. I do it daily. Add it to your AM & PM routine or anytime you need it. No foam roller? Add a pool noodle, rolled up towels or simply lay on the floor. This reduces your blood pressure and stress hormones in stressful situations. What reduces stress and anxiety for you?
