Overcome Anxiety & Distress with EMDR Self-Coaching
Those who perceive their environment with anticipatory concern and at the same time expect distress are experiencing anxiety. Feeling, thinking and behavior is characterized by suspicion. Fears are sometimes more and sometimes less concrete. As it often is, the subjective interpretation of one’s own environment plays a crucial role in experiencing anxiety. It is not the things themselves but rather the thought of it that we fear.
Our personal attention is focused on concerns and potentially adverse consequences.
With growing feelings of anxiety, we visibly lose the ability to relax. Restlessness influences the mental and emotional state of those experiencing anxiety. The risk of generalizing increases. Worries are then transferred to other situations.
This is the time when it is important to put a stop to the surging tide of negative thoughts and feelings.
A new sense of reality can once again find its way into your world of thought, no matter whether it is regarding concerns about your financial situation, the gloomy outlook of a sobering future or a vague “evil” premonition.
One’s emotional state often visibly improves, once the expectations causing a dismal outlook on the future are stopped.
