Anxiety and Stress

Anxiety causes stress and we all know how it feels when we’re stressed. The palpitations, the sudden sweats, the flight or fight syndrome. But where does stress come from? Scientists can measure how stress changes the biochemistry of the body and we can see how stress damages health but that doesn’t explain where it comes from? In reality stress does not exist. Stress just appears to exist. I know that can sound ludicrous if you feel as if you’re in the middle of a stressful situation but stress is inflicted by your own thinking. You know stress is mind made. How else can you explain panic attacks or feelings of anxiety that you might experience whilst you’re sitting on your sofa at home?

We are always feeling our thinking, as soon as we have a thought, we are going to have a feeling. Stress happens when you get caught up in your thinking and react to circumstances and people around you. It feels as if the outside world has power over you, you might think your stressful feelings are coming from your partner, your children, your boss. How could you not feel stressed?

Let me help you to see where these feelings are really coming from and how you can be free from living in stress and anxiety.
