Anxiety can be very strong at times and it is very difficult to experience. I keep pushing through as i have learnt that the feeling of intense discomfort do pass and although it feels very overwhelming at times, i just hang in their and not let the anxiety dictate how i behave.
I forget to do do breathing exercise, as this can trick the brain out of fight or flight mode. I try not to judge myself for my inner thought process or the feelings that i feel. What matters to me is my behaviour and this is what is important. The way i temper the extreme judgment's i can have about myself is to say. I am not this mind, i am not this body, i am not these feeling's, I am a spirit having a physical experience. That really calms me down a lot and it take away the power of intrusive thoughts and feelings.

Thanks for that nikita. I find one of the biggest stumbling blocks to peace of mind is negative fantasy. I obsess about certain fears and I find it very difficult to stop thinking in a certain way. I have tried many things over the years and I have found EFT helpful at times. I think their are many ways to recover from mental health, I find socialising and exercise have helped me a lot. I am getting bits of therapy from the NHS and that has been helpful. Isolating is not good for me.
