When you suffer from anxiety, situations that wouldn’t normally bother you can feel really overwhelming.
You get caught up in the fog of emotion, it all feels too much.
You can try to push through it and focus on getting stuff done, imagining that perhaps when you’ve ticked more items off your list you’ll feel better? But pushing yourself harder just feels like it intensifies the anxiety, and you worry that it’ll take over completely.
Or, you can step back, hide away, take a break and see if you feel better later. Then, as soon as you step back in to the situation, the overwhelm floods back in. The cycle starts again and you start to doubt how you’ll ever cope.
Or, you can stay there, frozen, hoping the feeling will pass.
You are not alone.
Other people have felt the way that you do, and they have got through it, got help and feel better.
When my clients come to see me for help with anxiety, the first thing I do is try to find clarity amongst all that fog.
Then I find remedies that will help them to reset and feel in control again.
Here’s an exercise that you may find useful:
Think about a situation that makes you feel anxious. Really imagine yourself in that situation. It might make you feel uncomfortable, but try to connect with that feeling.
What sensations do you notice in your body?
Where in your body do you feel it?
Where does your mind take you when you feel like this?
Really knowing and recognising the feeling is a huge step towards finding a way out of it. And for some, simply connecting with the physical sensation of it is enough to ground you and calm you.
As you go about your day, see if you can spot the early stages of this feeling developing.
And see if you can find ways that you can step back, pause and reset, and notice how you feel when the stress eases.
