Is there anything you feel stuck with, something you can’t seem to get your teeth into, something that’s bothering you on a personal and emotional level in a project, process or work topic? Speak it out loud and see your own solution through the help of others.
A little later than expected I am happy to announce that my coaching praxis in Wien Josefstadt is finally open! I am offering information evenings every Tuesday at 17:30 in English and 19:00 in German as of Tuesday 19th May until the end of June. Come along and see what time2unfold.com can do for you :)
I used public transport last Tuesday for the first time since the start of the corona lockdown in Austria and this is when I started to realise a major post-isolation feeling.
I am reading about causes of depression at the moment and I have come across a very current topic. Depression caused by uncontrollable events and learned helplessness. Martin Hautzinger (Akute Depression, 2012) writes about experimental studies that show insecurity, fear, drawing back, passive behaviour and giving up to learn new things caused by the loss of control around us. If it gets even worse, some might experience lack of appetite, loss of weight and resignation. Let’s not let it get that far! Do something about it.
I just came across a post from Chris Rangel that made me write about my own ideas of being afraid. There are so many aspects of fear, the natural fear, the learnt fear, the imagined fear, the multiplied fear etc…

I had a small procedure in hospital last week. It was a procedure that I had never experienced before and I was very scared. I had put it off three weeks prior because I couldn’t stand the thought of it. I was worried, scared, had sweaty cold hands, my heart was racing… I couldn’t stomach it. I had to pull out.
I grew up learning about consequences, it gave me the impression I could steer the world around me. Physics, maths, business strategies, psychology, don’t we seem to have all the answers?
I’ve seen offers to cope with the crisis of coronavirus, apps, webinars, emergency phone numbers. So I think as a society we agree that we should look after our mental state. But are we really? Are we really saying the things we feel out loud or do you protect your family from your own fear and put on a brave face? Do you dare to turn to your loved ones and talk about your concerns, share your feelings and connect?
Life is all about waves, good times and bad times are in a constant spiral. We can't always fight the bad times but we can include some good moments while we are in them.
