The American Psychological Association defines anxiety as “an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure.”
Anxiety is often considered normal, but when it starts to get in the way of your day-to-day life, negatively affects your behavior and disrupts your ability to process emotions, it’s time to seek help.
Although anxiety may seem like it’s caused by current events related to your relationship with your boss or your dating life, these are just the surface triggers that go to something much deeper.
You can think about it like this—you are made up of two distinct parts:
- Your Conscious mind—thoughts, emotions, memories, feelings, sensations, etc. that are within your current awareness.
- Your Subconscious mind—the place where all of your past life experiences are stored.
When you try to overcome anxiety with your Conscious mind, you’ll continue to repeat the same self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors over and over because you’re missing the ROOT cause.
Anxiety needs to be addressed from its source—your Subconscious mind, which may be storing multiple negative experiences and micro traumas from an early age that cause you to experience anxiety from triggers in everyday life.
One hour of inner work on your subconscious mind is worth 7 hours of outer work on your conscious mind! If you take the time to recalibrate yourself rather than continue to suffer in a state of anxiety; you’ll be surprised at how much more productive you are and how much easier it is to thrive and live with purpose.
I would love to support you in overcoming your anxiety.
