what do you do when?

Your worrying is filled up in your brain and it goes in circles because you are unsure of something?

Re: what do you do when?

First I name it- Fear,worry, anxiety. Then I ask why are you having this feeling nick? is it your body? is it a justifable fear or is it just a fear that I don't need? Is it not even me? Is it intuition? did I not eat, sleep or medicate properly?

My grandfather taught me years ago that "Everything tells you something else". It was under the hood of a car and we were talking about something under the hood affecting something else under the hood.

If you apply this to emotions and ask yourself what is causing this fear or what have you it sends you down the path of interoception. Simply recognizing your emotions when they are happening can be very very soothing. I know it is for me.

Perhaps one has to be a "thinker" but I think others can master it. Dan Seigel calls it mindsight.

Re: what do you do when?

crochet!
I just try to keep doing easy things, sometimes the feeling goes away on its own
if not, at least try not to panic...
(of course if the problem resolves itself somehow - yay!)

Re: what do you do when?

Sometimes, if possible and/or not crazy to do, I will grab that unsure item and make a coin-flip decision to get it out of the way.

Re: what do you do when?

Like Bella said, I go crazy too. The only thing that works for me with anxiety is to sleep it off.

Re: what do you do when?

I can't always brings myself to in those occasions, but sometimes I meditate when facing great stress. It helps. It doesn't happen as often any more, either.
