I don’t know what your experience with anxiety looks, sounds, or feels like. I only know mine.
In my experience, anxiety feels like paralyzing worry. It feels a little like an incomplete run-on sentence. As if my mind takes in the data “this expensive item broke, I don’t know how to fix it, I don’t know how much it costs to replace, I don’t know how long it will take to fix.”
Then it runs into a fixed mindset belief, often a belief born of trauma. “Bad things always happen to me.” This disempowers me.
For me, anxiety doesnt have ONE solution, it has many. I have two products that really help me manage anxiety proactively and reactively.
I also find that addressing my root concerns through a process helps a great deal. There are so many resources to uncover the causes of anxiety and create new beliefs and actions.
I have also found Churchill’s words to hit the nail on the head.
Let our advance worry become advance thinking and planning.
Planning is a POWERFUL combatant to anxiety.
For example, An appliance broke, I am going to research the cost for replacement & repair, I will checkout you tube videos to help, I’ll make a decision and a PLAN to move forward.
Instead of feeling frustrated, angry or stuck that “bad things happen to me.” I can choose action that moves forward,
