For years, I battled severe anxiety, struggling to find relief and effective solutions. I was seeking help from health care practitioners, but no one addressed the impact of lifestyle choices on my anxiety. Instead, I received messages suggesting that my brain was “broken” or that past trauma would forever hold me back. The truth is, I found my way to recovery by understanding how the mind works and embracing real solutions. This is why I created this blog – to help you realize that you can overcome anxiety without years of struggle. In this article, we’ll explore five common habits that may be making your anxiety worse and preventing your recovery.
Relationships play a significant role in shaping our emotions and perceptions of the world around us, and when they turn toxic, they can become a breeding ground for anxiety.
Toxic relationships are characterized by constant negativity, manipulation, and a lack of emotional support. Being involved in such relationships can lead to chronic stress and a constant feeling of being on edge. The emotional turmoil caused by toxic individuals can trigger or intensify anxiety symptoms, making it challenging to find peace and balance in our lives.
The constant emotional turmoil and tension can keep our minds racing at night, making it difficult to relax and fall asleep.
Remember It’s not just romantic relationships that can be toxic; friendships, family ties, and even workplace dynamics can also contribute to heightened anxiety levels. In unhealthy social environments, we may feel constantly judged, invalidated, or unsupported, leading to a chronic state of anxiety and emotional distress.
Hypnosis can help you gain the confidence you need to stand for yourself and set healthy boundaries.
