Eye Opening Social Anxiety Fact Of The Day!

anxiety fact of the day

In the people I work with personally to stop anxiety and panic naturally, it would seem that this fact is extremely true. The more we avoid what it is we fear (in this case interaction with others, face to face or other ways) the more that fear grows. Soon one may feel that their social anxiety becomes too great too overcome, and it is at this point where a systematic and gradual way of stopping social anxiety is the best.

An End The Anxiety Program Testimonial From Mia, Awesome Transformation

flying

Ever since high school, I suffered from intense vertigo attacks that interrupted my day and bombarded my life with depression, hopelessness, fear, and deep worry. These vertigo attacks were the result of my ongoing battle with anxiety and depression. My strongest concern was that these attacks would happen my entire life and, except for the numbing effects of various powerful medications, these attacks and feelings of anxiety were incurable. Whenever my vertigo attacks would strike, I would experience panic, lose all sense of orientation, diminish to self-hatefulness, and feel like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. My vertigo attacks were not the common feeling of spinning, but rather a magnetic sensation that all surrounding objects were surging and moving towards me with varying magnetic intensity. These attacks would strike at any time and in any place, so the terrifying randomness of their occurrence would leave me in a constant state of worry, fear, and anxiety about when and where the next episode would happen.

One time, I experienced an episode while driving in my car, and it was in this moment that I yearned for the light, a cure, or some answer that would lift me out of this anxiety abyss. The medications only served as Band-Aids masking the issue, and I needed something life-changing, healing, and completely transforming to turn my life around and bring a sense of true promise to my experience. When I told a friend about this horrendous vertigo attack that occurred while driving on the highway, this friend advised me to check out an interesting online program called the End The Anxiety Program by The Anxiety Guy.

As soon as I got to a computer, I purchased and downloaded this easy-to-understand online anxiety program. I listened to its many incredible main audio files and my deep-rooted feelings of anxiety were steadily melting away. At first, I did still experience relentless vertigo attacks, but with patience and courage inspired by the program’s phenomenal guidance. I was able see progress and gradual healing. The End The Anxiety program has a checking in system to keep in contact with clients who suffer from anxiety every three days, and through this system, I was given consistent care by mentors and coaches who have been in my shoes in the past. This is a fantastic cheap investment for anyone searching to stop, reverse, and heal their generalized anxiety disorder or panic attacks naturally. All mainstream medications were not helping, but rather leaving me hopeless in a daily routine of vertigo attacks and anxiety. I am so grateful for this End The Anxiety Program and the freedom that I can now experience and enjoy. I feel completely liberated from all past anxiety, fear, and depression, and I highly recommend this program!

I want to thank Mia for her email to me, and trust in the end the anxiety program and hope her story inspires others to choose a natural route to stopping an anxiety disorder. If you’d like more information on the end the anxiety program visit www.theanxietyguy.com.

 

The Day I Believed In Mental Imagery And Visualization

mental imagery and visualization

During my early high school days, I needed some relief from tennis from time to time and my dad thought it was a good idea to get involved in the different sports at school when I wasn’t training on the tennis court. I joined the soccer team, the baseball team, and the basketball team. I loved all of these sports, but basketball stood out for me much more than the others. I wanted to become a better basketball player, there was only one problem―I sucked at shooting. I was faster then everyone, jumped as high as everyone, and understood the basketball playbook very well. But I sucked at shooting.

An Unlikely Shooting Mentor Showed Up

My basketball coach at the time would always use me in the plays to distribute the ball and to set picks etc., but I wanted to be a bigger part of the team’s offence, but he told me that wouldn’t happen unless I learned how to shoot better. For the next few weeks I pulled a Michael Jordan; I was in the gym before tennis and school shooting around, and I was in the gym in the evening after tennis shooting around. I must have shot a thousand shots per day from every area of the court, but was only getting a little better and I didn’t understand, and neither did anyone else because my technique was good but something was missing.

Then came a rare moment of softness from “the beast” (my dad). He stepped out on to the basketball court and started shooting free throws with me. My dad never played basketball in his life, but had a decent idea of how it was done. He grabbed the ball and tried to dribble it to the free throw line with no success, then he just walked the ball there. He put his left foot in front of his right foot just behind the free throw line and told me not to talk to him until he said it was OK.

He held the ball up as if he was holding a giant egg, very gently, with two hands right next to each other behind the ball. I almost started to crack up in laughter and how funny he looked. He stared at the rim for 10 seconds and told me “pass the ball to me after each shot, please.” Wow he said please, I thought to myself.

He let the shot go off of his fingertips and with one of the ugliest follow through I’ve ever seen from a basketball shot, the ball went straight into the hoop for a swish without touching any part of the rim or backboard. I passed the ball back to him and he looked at the rim again for 10 seconds before taking his shot and again―swish.

At this point I was thinking to myself, what luck! So I passed him the ball again and for a third straight time―swish! Then again and again. I thought to myself, I practice day and night and get absolutely no results, and my old man jumps in out of nowhere and never taken a shot in his life and nails five free throws like it was nothing. He started to look at the rim less and less after the first five, and he made the next 23 shots without touching the rim, and by the end of it he was only taking around two seconds to shoot the ball.

28 Shots In A Row

After the free throw session I asked him how he was able to make 28 free throws in a row without hitting the rim and never having shot a basketball before. “Visualize and focus,” he calmly said. He showed me how to create a mental image of how I wanted the ball to go in the net after each shot, and to be able to do it in a split second. Because of his teaching I was able to become a big part of the offence in the next few months on my basketball team because I was apparently now a “sharpshooter.”

I applied mental imagery and visualization towards everything I wanted to create in my life, as well as use it as a tool to stop my anxiety disorder naturally.

Don’t be at the mercy of events or circumstances or even other people. Understand that you are the cause just as I was and your reality is in fact the effect. The sooner you realize this the sooner your life will turn around.

5 Signs Your Mind Is Overly Anxious And Stressed

how to stop worry and anxiety

To be relaxed, you need to relax your body and your mind. For many people, stress takes the form of psychological distress, and you find that your mind is filled with distressing thoughts that prevent you from feeling relaxed and at ease. You may have a mind that races a mile a minute. You may be worrying about your job, your relationships, your financial, or simply how you are going to do all the hundred and one things on your agenda. Whatever the cause of your worry, you are clearly not going to relax until you stop – or at least slow – this mental circus.

One of the best ways to relax your mind is to relax your body. When your body relaxes, your mind slows. But there are other ways to tame unruly thoughts and a restless mind.

Five Signs Your Mind is Overly Anxious And Stressed: 

Some common signs that your mind is working overtime:

  1. Your mind seems to be racing.
  2. You find controlling your thoughts difficult.
  3. You are worried, irritable, or upset.
  4. You are preoccupied more often and find concentrating more difficult.
  5. You find it difficult to fall asleep or to fall back asleep once awake.

Distraction

The simplest way to calm your mind is to distract yourself. This may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised how often people forget this method. Psychologists know that concentrating on two things at the same time is very hard. Therefore, if your mind is flooded with distressing thoughts, change tacks. Find something else to think about. Here are a few pleasant diversions to consider:

  • Watch some television
  • Go to a movie
  • Read a book, newspaper, or magazine
  • Talk to a friend
  • Work or play on your computer
  • Play a sport
  • Immerse yourself on some project or hobby
  • Listen to some favorite music, sing along
  • Think of something you are looking forward to
  • Daydream

Imagine This

If you are able to replace a stress-producing thought or image with one that is relaxing, you’ll feel much better. Try this:

  1. Find a place where you won’t be disturbed for a few minutes and get comfortable, either sitting in a favorite chair or lying down.
  2. Think of an image – a place, scene, or memory – that relaxes you. Use all your senses to bring that imagined scene to life. What do you see? What can you hear? What can you smell? What can you feel?
  3. Let yourself become completely immersed in your image, allowing it to relax you completely.

Can’t think of a relaxing image? Try taking a mini-mental vacation:

  • The Caribbean: Imagine yourself on the beach of a Caribbean island. The weather is perfect. You’re lying on the cool sand and you feel a warm breeze. You can hear the ocean lapping on the shore and a tropical bird singing in the palms. You are sipping a daiquiri and can smell your coconut suntan lotion. Your mind is completely at peace.
  • The Pool: You’re lying on a large inflatable raft, floating in a beautiful swimming pool. The sky is deep blue, the sun is warming your body. The raft is rocking gently. You are very content and could lie here forever.
  • Winter Wonderland: You’re in small cabin in Vermont or Austria or Vancouver, etc. You’re snowed in, but that’s perfect because you don’t have to be anywhere and no one needs to contact you. Also, you are with your favorite person and you’re both lying in front of a crackling fire. There’s music playing and you’re sipping warm drinks.
  • Memories: Picture a memory, perhaps one from childhood, or a more recent one that you find particularly happy and satisfying. It could be a past vacation, a birthday party, or playing with your old dog Buster.

None of these work for you? Find your own personal relaxation image. You could try one of these:

  • Soaking in a hot bath, with soft music and candlelight
  • Walking in a quiet forest, with birds chirping and leaves rustling
  • Lying under a tree in the park, with warm breezes and birds chirping
  • In your most comfortable chair, with a great book and a beverage

What you see and hear generally dominates your imagination. But don’t forget to add in the good old senses of touch and smell. By adding sensual dimensions you can enrich your images and make them more involving.
