Before you can really understand how to overcome anxiety in your own life, you need to know where it comes from, and why simple things like the thought of facing normal household task may be so uncomfortable.
You need to know that even though the medical profession calls anxiety a disorder, believe or not, most anxiety is a habit your brain learned some time ago.
A long time ago you were in a situation that was fearful, or uncomfortable for you, but your nervous system remembers it well, even today.
The mechanisms in your brain stored up the information when you were frightened, or hurt, and now it works to keep you safe from what it interprets as similar situations.
When I first heard that my chronic anxiety and panic attacks were a bad habit, I was more than upset. I was mad that someone had the gall to say something like that, but it turns out they were right, after all.
My anxiety was always my brain trying to save me from what it thought was dangerous, even though it’s information was long outdated.
