TAGP 22: How I Recently Crushed Chronic Fatigue Fast

July 25, 2016

best self development tipsSo many of you who follow The Anxiety Guy Podcast are probably wondering where the heck is Dennis! Why did he not make any podcast episodes in the last few weeks? The truth is that I myself have recently been hit with a case of extreme fatigue that caught me totally off guard. A feeling that hadn’t been present for many years, and one I don’t enjoy much.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS for short is a feeling  of extreme tiredness and heaviness. I realized that in life we’re expected to be so many different people, and do all the jobs that come with those people well! A great father, a great employee or business owner, a provider, a this a that aaaa! We rarely take a step back and just say;

“I’m Doing The Best I Can With What I Have, And That Is Enough”

The truth is the game of life got to me, and I said to myself I would be 100 percent truthful with the followers of The Anxiety Guy so here it is. This episode will show you what I did to quickly overcome these feelings and get a better perspective as far as what was going on in my life.

    • Hi Mohammed thanks for the question on this site first of all. What you mentioned reminds me of a time I tried Yoga at the height of my health anxiety, and unfortunately couldn’t finish the class due to dizziness and heart palms etc. Meditation and yoga I believe can be counter-productive for health anxiety sufferers simply because in these forms of relaxation, the main focus is on our bodies and our breath. For chronic sufferers this is already a great fear of ours and we keep track of our breathing and our symptoms on a minute to minute basis. These are just new ways of ‘checking in’ on our bodies, which won’t work for severe sufferers. For more mild problems with anxiety and panic I believe meditation and yoga are great, because their sensitivity is not as heightened as the others. This is why the goal of becoming disinterested in our anxiety symptoms is key so that we can bring ourselves to once and for all enjoy these great forms of relaxation. My transformation took place when I gave into the fear of death, held up a white flag and told my anxiety to do its worst if it could, and turn my focus completely on the most important things outside of myself which was family, career, helping others etc. Lose interest, create change.
