London Bridge station is a busy transport hub where hundreds of commuters pass through on a regular basis. A few months ago, terrorists drove a van into pedestrians near London Bridge station and then went on a rampage, armed with knives. That was Friday evening. Now it was the weekend and soon it would be Monday morning again – time to take that train into London once more.
It is only natural that commuters would feel afraid, or at the very least apprehensive! I certainly wasn’t looking forward to that journey, and I guess I wasn’t alone. But what could a commuter do to make this journey manageable?
Well, I decided to take some of my own medicine: two simple techniques – EFT and Mindfulness. And since I thought fellow travelers might benefit from it too, I shared this in a live Facebook video.
The first video uses Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to address the fear on the train journey. The second video uses Mindfulness to navigate the station and its surroundings.
What I hope these videos demonstrate first and foremost, though, is how simple and adaptable these techniques are. No lengthy meditation sessions, yoga pants or appointment with a practitioner – you can do it yourself wherever you are!
