trying to kick anxietys butt

Posted , 4 users are following.

i have to say, tonight i went for something to eat with my other half, brought no phone and had no distractions, enjoyed the moments and didnt dwell on any odd thoughts, when i dont over think i have no pains, no odd symptoms and no worries, this is called racing brain symdrome and when mine starts to panic and ace im trying to slow it down. focus on good points in your life an be thankful for those. i want to heal myself and when i do i aim to help others

    Hi tara, you seem to be on the right track, all you need to do now is control that breathing.  Slowing every thing down will completely reduce the anxieties in your body, both mentaly and physically. I learned it when I was in the forces, its a form of self hypnosis. You can even make yourself fall asleep because the feeling is so nice. There is anxiety self-help guides and deep muscle relaxation guides. One thing I must say is when setting about using deep muscle relaxation, when it says now relax all you need to say to yourself is STOP  instead of relax When you say relax it is a natural thing to hold back and the muscles are still in a state of flux so are still tight. Well done and the best of luck. Peter.
