WHAT IS ANXIETY?
First, it is good to know that anxiety is fear of the future. I hear the term anxiety as a ‘blanket’ explanation for everything that bothers one’s emotional state negatively. Here is the correct definition:
“A feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.”
The body and mind are in an intricately interconnected system. You are training your body to respond to certain experiences since you were a child. First, of course, you had no say so with what your mind is programmed with. Later on, after a certain age, your reasoning abilities are starting to evolve.
Through modeling behavior you did the best you could to cope with emotional situations.
As an adult, memories can flood your mind from triggers sometimes unknown. Followed up by constantly thinking about what happened in the past. “Why these things happened to me and how could I have, should I have or would I have changed it?”
Finally, after knowing consciously that you couldn’t have done anything differently, your anxiety practice starts: “What if this will happen again?”.
Your healing starts with a short discussion about what you want in the future to happen. To create a purpose that excites you.
