Dream In, Stress Out

Dream in, Stress out. That was my breathing mantra as I tried to fall asleep last night. I usually have a panic attack just as I am trying to go to sleep on Sunday evenings. I think I get excited about the week to come and stressed about all the things on my list to do. I usually do deep breathing to help with my anxiety and lately using mental words help even more. I fell asleep and had stress free dreams all night! Just thought I would share in case that might be helpful to you.

Below is one of my new paintings. I just posted it on Etsy last week. Red Reflection is one of my abstracted landscapes with colors I love to use together. Can you see the green through the blue and red on bottom and orange on top? That is one of my favorite little details.

  1. Love the color palette, good luck with your sale. When I went through a period of having bad dreams my sister told to say the following before going to bed . . . "I will NOT dream of pink fluffy bunnies". Not sure if it worked but it did make me giggle.

  2. when life gets you stressed you just have to breath. Oh and make art ;)
    your blog (and art) looks great!

  3. I love this Heather! So striking! Panic attacks are horrid things, so the deep breathing is a good idea. I look forward to checking out more of your art. Paula :)

  4. Love your composition...The colors all work beautifully together!

  5. Thank you all for the votes of confidence and good ideas. it helps to hear how others deal with run away thoughts also.

  6. Wow. This. Is. Beautiful. Looking at this makes me breath in, and push the stress out. Wonderful colours! Very powerful.
