“Sensations Of Anxiety Are Nothing More Than Questions To Your Mind.”
Understanding can be as important as action. Committing to understanding why you experience these bodily sensations of anxiety if you’re an anxiety sufferer many times becomes the challenge. And not because the person with anxiety doesn’t want to commit, but because of the core beliefs and opinions from people in their past that became their own inner critical voices.
I spent lots of time studying anxiety recoverers who went through the same inner challenges as me, and that’s where it all changed.
They simply do things differently than people stuck in a cycle of thinking based on their emotional reaction. Most anxiety sufferers want to maintain their emotional state, not really step out of their comfort zones too much because the risk is too great. ‘What if I actually get better, it’s been so long!’ Or ‘I highly doubt I’ll be able to maintain my care-free happiness, so might as well not try.’ This is where Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can shift a persons thinking style completely.
Bodily sensations of anxiety can really affect someones perceptions over time and space. Time because it goes way to slow, and the moment an anxiety sufferer wakes up many times they can’t wait to get back to bed in the evening. And space because they lose track of their environment, and the current situation due to being so internally focused.
