So what is going on when the mind spirals out of control?

There you are sitting in your living room, watching TV, reading a book or relaxing, when out of the blue you are feeling anxious. You might wonder why you are feeling agitated. It might seem like nothing is going on yet, your body is not feeling right. Perhaps if you are aware of body signals you’ve already noticed that your heart is beating faster than usual. Or it might be you notice a tightness in your stomach, or it’s just an uneasy feeling –something feels unsettled.

The beginning steps:
1. Stop for a moment, take a breath, think back.
2. Think about what was going through your mind a few moments before your body reacted.
3. What was happening in your environment, what was happening on TV.
4. Begin to recall any thoughts that were going through your mind, a few moments before your body reacted.
5. TIP: Sometimes thoughts move so fast that you won’t notice then in the moment. So take a moment to pause and look back to find them.
