Identifying early warning signs of tension

The body always speaks to us.
It gives us signs.
When something is unpleasant,
the body will warn us.
We also call these signs
early warning signs.
They are different for each person.
Exercises for feeling and identifying

Here are some examples:

  • Body:
    A restless feeling in the belly, a pounding heartbeat, sleeplessness.
  • Thoughts:
    Nervousness, restlessness, inability to concentrate.
  • Feelings:
    Fear, sadness, anger, guilt, rage.

If you identify these early warning signs in yourself,
you can do something
to make yourself feel better.
Then the tension in your body may not rise to a high level.
