“Progress Over Health Anxiety Can Certainly Be Achieved By Starting And Ending The Day With The Right Focus Of Attention.”
Isn’t it interesting that how we start our day dictates how much progress over health anxiety we make? A symptom of anxiety may show up, but it’s not the symptom that caused the snowball we call health anxiety, it’s the mental, emotional, and behavioral response to the symptom. That’s why I want to make sure that the right questions run through your mind in the morning and at the end of the day.
You’re always just one MASSIVE epiphany away from ending health anxiety
Yes you heard me right. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve suffered or how severe your health anxiety has been. One deep and emotional realization that helps you to question your patterns that cause health anxiety could be enough to change your emotional path in life. It certainly showed up for me one afternoon as I was driving to work, and that started the snowball effect that contributed to my huge progress over health anxiety.
I realized that a thought is just a thought, an emotion was just an emotion, and I had more options as to how I responded to my symptoms of health anxiety
That sounds like 3 epiphanies I know, as they all came rushing towards me and slapped me in the face. I started questioning the ideas in my head that kept me from progress over health anxiety. I started viewing my symptoms of anxiety from the perspective of my subconscious mind which held my past emotional traumas. Everything will be better warrior I promise, but first let’s make sure we get these questions in.
Today on the health anxiety podcast show we’ll be going over:
- Why emphasis on progress over health anxiety rather than looking for the ‘finish line’ is key
- Examples of productive questioning in my own health anxiety recovery
- Why positive progress has been so minimal for you lately
