How to make stress your friend

How to make stress your friend | Anxiety Depression Cognition | Scoop.it
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

How To Stop An Anxious Thought In Its Tracks

How To Stop An Anxious Thought In Its Tracks | Anxiety Depression Cognition | Scoop.it

"...It may sound like a paradox, but avoiding fearful thoughts actually makes anxiety worse, explains Dr. Mickey Trockel, M.D., a psychiatrist and clinical assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University. "The biggest concern is when anxiety starts to create an avoidance cycle," Trockel tells The Huffington Post. "When something is provoking those emotions, then avoiding it feels good -- and because that feels good, it's reinforcing the anxiety. Then, the next time the situation comes up, without any conscious decision-making, it creates greater intensity."

 

Norton suggests confronting your initial anxiety in a mindful manner to keep it from worsening. Otherwise, avoiding those worrisome thoughts may cause them to manifest in other ways, such as nightmares or flashbacks.

Couldn't have explained this more accurately myself.  Anxiety can be a kill joy if left untreated.  Most people are unaware that the more you feel panic or anxious, without confronting or challenging it, the worse it becomes.  Every time we avoid a thought or the feeling of anxiety, we unknowingly, work to make the source of the feeling or thought stronger.  By challenging the fear by saying something like, you are not going to rule my life, you are actively working to lessen the debilitating feelings that accompany it.  

 

If you haven't tried this method, have a go!  And get back to us at changemakers counselling and psychology with your experience.  I'd love to hear from you.

aptly said: "While the scans are dazzling and the technology an unqualified marvel, we can always keep our bearings by remembering that the brain and the mind are two different frameworks."
