How to Ditch Your Anxious Feelings

Anxious Feelings? Try Staying in the Present Moment

Everybody suffers from anxious feelings now and then.

But, do you find it happening to you often? Are you struggling to unwind and feel better?

Read on for some practical steps you can take to start feeling better right away.

Stay in the Present Moment

If you’re feeling anxious, you are probably thinking about what’s going to happen in the future.

Why is that?

It’s because anxiety tends to be a future-oriented state of mind.

So, when you want to calm yourself down, you need reel yourself back into the present moment.

Yes, reeling yourself back into the present moment is very difficult at times.

Why?

Because, being human, we’re all genetically designed to stay on “high alert for danger”.

But nowadays, we have all kinds of information coming at us from all directions.

And, even worse, the information is bombarding us at super-high speeds from every direction.

So, you can probably guess what happens.

Our “high alert for danger” adaptation starts working against us.

And, anxious feelings start taking over.

Sometimes, it might seem like our anxious feelings protect us from what COULD happen.

And, this thought is valid to a certain extent. But, to what effect?

In realigy, letting anxious thoughts take control of our minds pretty much the same as walking around every day with an umbrella waiting for it to rain.

Is it really worth it?
