Updated: Jun 27, 2020
Do you constantly feel anxious? Are you often worried about being worried and have crippling panic attacks or feel terrified by simple everyday situations? Do you regularly find yourself asking, why do I feel anxious?
If you find yourself wondering why some people experience anxiety only occasionally, while others seem to be immobilized by it, let me tell you, you’re not alone.
Why do people get anxiety? The causes of anxiety disorders aren’t fully understood and there can be many things that can ignite anxiety in people. Life experiences such as traumatic events from the past appear to trigger anxiety disorders in people who are already prone to anxiety. Inherited traits can also be a contributing factor. Anxiety often appears in a variety of ways and can have different types of triggers for different people.
But what if you could train yourself to feel strong, to feel passion and joy?
Instead of constantly asking yourself “why do I feel anxious?”, what if you could push those thoughts and feelings away through visualization, mental conditioning and a change in mindset? Yes, you can.
To be clear, this training does not mean that you will never end up feeling anxious ever again. To expect that is to set yourself up for disappointment. Everyone feels anxiety to some degree and at some point in their lives. You can’t change the fact that stressful moments in life will happen, but you can decide to move past them and control your emotions.
This training will give you the tools you need to understand your sense of anxiety, deal with it and move on.
Here are 6 Powerful ways to deal with anxiety and depressive thoughts.
1. Make a Quick Shift
When you are feeling anxious getup, pull your shoulder back and stand confident and tall. Try visualizing yourself as an able and confident person handling the current situation. Make this image in your head as clear as you possibly can. Take slow concentrated breaths and imagine a steady heartbeat. Get yourself to think of a time when you had absolute conviction and confidence that you can handle whatever situation is thrown your way. A time when you felt confident and competent. Though mental conditioning takes time and persistence, it’s well worth it to reduce anxiety and get more out of each day.
