“Unconsciously there’s a formula for health anxiety that we apply daily, which gives us our consistent results.”
Shocking, I know. Many health anxiety sufferers believe that what takes place on the outside affects how we feel on the inside. The truth is that the formula you run each day (consciously and unconsciously) creates the associations between what’s safe and what’s a danger, which then turns into an emotion. This emotion has been misinterpreted one too many times, and it’s heightened your sensitivity to your bodily symptoms of anxiety.
Health anxiety is no accident, you’ve gotten really good at running specific patterns each day that makes you feel this way
Many times when we think about the word ‘formula,’ we think of positive things. In this case however the formula for health anxiety is a set of patterns and habits that I’ll bring to your awareness today. Once this information gets to you I believe you’ll start seeing yourself less as a victim, and more empowered. Empowered because you’ll feel a sense of power coming back to you.
Health anxiety can make you feel powerless, but it’s just a feeling
As we all know by now a feeling is just a feeling, and a thought is just a thought. Think of it as an option, one option out of many for that particular situation. We have the power within us to bypass the initial fearful emotional response and move to a more neutral interpretation of our bodily symptoms of anxiety.
