Have you ever dealt with anxiety?

Postby PurplePlane » Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:31 am

Or do you deal with it currently?

If so, what have you found the best way(s) to eliminate or reduce it?

I guess some sort of anxiety is often going on inside. Most of the time underneath the surface - but still present.

Strategies to deal with it? If I can pinpoint the anxiety to a cause - then I try to resolve that cause. If its just a foggy emotion ... then I have to try to focus on sth. else and push it away.

In my case anxiety is curiously the only emotion I seem to be able to actually perceive.
Still though the way to deal with it... well I don't think emotions are there to be controlled or reduced, but to be experienced. Emotions usually communicate some wish of the system to take a certain action - even though the wording, volume and context might be pretty out of control sometimes - so suppressing them also suppresses a huge part of your organisms natural functioning and ultimately leads to problems appearing in other areas.
