Procrastination can be a way of mobilizing internal panic, but why would anyone want to mobilize internal panic? Panic dumps adrenalin into the system, which can help focus your mind, and ultimately summon you into action. Think of first responders. Unfortunately, this approach places you in the non-thinking part of the mind, which makes it difficult to see the bigger picture and find an innovative solution that creates long lasting change. It is also very destructive to the body. So if you find yourself procrastinating, instead of sweeping the issue under the rug, I recommend you go inward, quiet your mind, and in that place of internal stillness uncover what you really want to create and find a gentler and more holistic approach than when mobilizing by creating internal panic.
I have found that the ICWIB activities are a simple way for me to go inward and figure out what I need to change instead of using the “mobilizing through panic” pattern I learned from my early childhood experiences.
I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
