Heart Flutters

Feelings are an exciting part of our lives. So many emotions every day; sometimes, you feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster – so hold on tight.

Lately, I notice that when certain people reach out to me, my heart flutters, now, I'm currently not in any romantic relationship, but I can feel my heart opening up again.

Heart flutters when it comes to love or likeness works when the brain sends signals to the adrenal gland, which secretes hormones such as adrenaline, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. They flow through the blood and cause the heart to beat faster and more robust.

It can escalate at any time and could be a memory or hope for the future. I found myself fluttering today – when I thought of certain people. It felt so good to handle, but I quickly caught myself with a whisk of anxiety.

Anxiety can cause flutters, too, and I'm sure all of us divorcees have had the moment where it turns into panic. I also had that happen to me today as well.

When I look back at the triggers, I can not pinpoint the cause unless it's underlying stress. When this happens, I know I need to slow down and reaccess what I am doing and how I handle these moments. Right now, I get moving and work out to alleviate those jitters. However, let's get back to handling the heart flutters for people you know to trigger the good feeling and how not to allow the hormones to transition into that anxiety.

Tips: 1: Mediate – to breathe and relax that brain of yours 2: Journal – if you can not express your feeling to the person or people, write them down. You may find a bit of self-discovery during this time. 3: Use guided imagery. Here is an excellent article by to get started. 4: Drink Electrolytes – no, really, it helps. 5: Get moving – exercising in any way can help with those flutters. We encourage you to feel the feels when you get the opportunity. It makes you feel alive again. Should it start to go the other way, make sure, you use the methods above to insert the calm. The song that I feel aligns with this post: is Ed Sheeran's "Shivers"
