Noticing my Anxiety reactions

Arrow Near Miss

Today wasn’t the best of days for me. Anxiety triggered last night and I still felt the effects for most of the day. But I did get a good night’s sleep last night so that’s good.

Physical reactions to Anxiety

I don’t know what it’s like for others but when Anxiety gets a hold of me I start to sweat. I can feel it building on my forehead and under the arms. Typical regions, I suppose. In fact, if the Anxiety trip stays particularly long (e.g. if I’m on a particularly turbulent flight), I start to smell the same way I would after a workout.

The important thing is that I’m noticing it. From there I can start to practice disengaging myself from it by focusing on something else like my breathing. I like to think it’s working in small amounts.
