TAGP 60: Top 5 Habits Health Anxiety Sufferers Must Replace

April 17, 2017

health anxiety sufferers“Health Anxiety Is Kept Alive Due To The Fear Of Losing Control Of Our Minds, Bodies, Or Both.”

Health anxiety sufferers consistently play out similar patterns in their day to day lives, with many of those people hoping for a different result. As painful as this challenge is we must get to the point of understanding that replacements of those patterns is crucial.

The Amygdala (the part of our brains responsible for the fear response) must be guided and trained. When the amygdala no longer believes that a perceived threat is in fact near, our symptoms of anxiety lessen and eventually don’t appear at all.

“The key for health anxiety sufferers to re-train their amygdala’s is by putting themselves in situations that they fear.”

The top 5 habits that health anxiety sufferers go though on a daily basis can be replaced. As noted in previous anxiety guy podcasts; The fastest way to overcoming fear based thoughts and behaviors is by replacing them with new ones.

This is why this episode fills me with great joy. To once and for all help health anxiety sufferers replace the habits that keep their sensitivity to fear alive.

The top 5 habits in this podcast episode are the result of working with over 3000 people worldwide. Understanding their thought patterns, beliefs and actions on a daily basis. It was revealed to me that these were the most consistent habits. The replacements are some of the new rituals I use to help health anxiety sufferers in my personal 1 on 1 Skype sessions as well.

In episode #60 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast we’ll get in depth answers into:

  • What causes health anxiety sufferers to choose these top 5 habits
  • How to easily replace them with habits that will break the anxiety patterns

    Anxiety is causing me to suffer from air hunger. The second something goes wrong I can’t get air into my lungs.
