HOW TO OVERCOME ANXIETY

23 July 2020

How to Overcome Your Stuck Points:

Anxiety can creep up on you in many ways, from obvious physical and behavioral symptoms to subtler symptoms that mess with your emotional and cognitive state of being. However, each time, it can leave behind a somewhat similar and familiar feeling - the feeling of being a little more lost, battered, and alone. Let us look into the personality concepts that will help you understand how your anxiety works.

The Multifaceted You.
Now, you cannot understand the average anxious person to understand your anxiety. You don’t need to either. You need to understand the many dimensions within which you and your anxiety exist. Once you start identifying these dimensions, which are characterized mainly by triggers and symptoms, you’ll be able to work around them, and in time, overcome them too.

Understanding Your Anxiety and What It Is Doing to You.
Anxiety on the inside can affect what you do and how you act on the outside. Thus, if you were to observe your mind and body, you might be able to notice some signs, behavioral and physical, that can tell you what your anxiety might be doing to you. For instance, an anxious person might be dealing with several conflicting and apprehensive thoughts. The internal noise and fear that reverberates inside might make them appear tired, withdrawn, and/or nervous.

Reflecting upon Your Triggers and Identifying Beliefs That are Standing in Your Way.
If you could follow an anxious mind, you might see patterns of negative thoughts that keep playing on and off. These thoughts might be triggers to the anxiety itself, and so addressing them is very important. A clinical technique called imagery exposure used in therapy can help address the triggers and identify their sources.

This Is the Start.
Now, this is a gradual process and is the first step to addressing your anxiety. Once you know what’s causing your anxiety, you can, in time, find ways to manage or overcome it.

Mindfully Moving Beyond the Beliefs Blocking Your Path.
To be able to solve problems, you must think realistically, coherently, without any chatter. And unfortunately, when anxious, our mind can get tied up in its contemplation wheel and fail to work on more productive and purposeful things.
