Online promoting is an unhealthy work.

I think all of us are aware about the importance to move away from the computer
now and then and get out for a walk or some other physical activity.
To keep us healthy and in good shape.
But Barry McDonagh gives us remedy for a common mental problem if we
leave the physical aspect of our health for a moment.

There is nothing worse than wanting to run away and escape your own self.

When you want to escape your own mind and body it feels like there is
nowhere to run.
I know how that feels. I have been there.
I also know that right now you are likely in a storm of anxiety and
just trying to concentrate on reading this feels like an enormous challenge.
 
The first thing you must know is that it is going to be OK!
 
You are going to get through this.
In fact, not only are you going to get through this but you are going to
become a stronger person because of it.
Although anxiety can feel like a prison without walls, it is not a life
sentence. It is absolutely curable.
Those walls can crumble and then you will be set free.
 
What I teach is a very simple form of healing anxiety – the way it should
be healed, which is naturally.
I am not saying this is for everyone nor am I saying this will be easy.
What I am saying is that it will be worth it.
Together we will fight to win back your peace of mind, your strength
of will, and your joy in life.
Anxiety is such an unpleasant experience.
 
It often feels like you are separated from ordinary life as if by a pane of glass.
 
The hardest part of all is the doubt and confusion it causes.
“Am I going mad?” “Why is this happening to me?” “Will this last forever?”
 
Unless a person has experienced an anxiety disorder first hand,
I don’t think they can fully understand what it feels like.
 
You are not alone in this.
 
You may have worried that your anxiety was unique to you, that no one
else has the thoughts and sensations that you have.
 
Sorry to burst your bubble but anxiety is not a unique condition at all.
 
There are millions of perfectly sane and normal people who have the
exact same problem that you do.

 
In fact, if you suffer from anxiety, you are actually quite normal.
 
No matter how deranged and shocking your anxious thoughts are,
I guarantee you there is someone close to you who is also suffering in silence.
 
No matter how bad your panic attacks are, there are millions of people
that experience them in the exact same manner – with the exact same
unusual sensations – as you.
 
Millions of perfectly sane people suffering in silence because of stress
hormones causing an over sensitized nervous system.
 
 
“But I feel like I am losing it!”
 
You are not going nuts. If you could flick a magic switch that caused
an immediate reduction of all the stress hormones that are floating
through your bloodstream, you would suddenly feel a whole lot
more normal again.
 
The sense of unreality would end along with the tornado of anxious
thoughts that are tearing through your mind.
 
 
The fact is anxiety is incredibly treatable!
 
I have been teaching people to end their anxiety for over ten years
now and can’t stress enough that this problem is entirely curable.
 
Getting you back to your old carefree self again is the goal.
 
People who eventually find me usually do so after having gone
through a wide range of therapies and treatments: from hypnosis,
deep breathing, and acupuncture all the way to strong
anti-anxiety medications.
 
I am sure you have tried an exhaustive list of things already.
 
The reason that many of these other approaches fail is because
they are based on an ‘anxiety management’ approach.
 
The culture of ‘anxiety management’ is so pervasive in today
society that medication and distraction techniques are the only
solutions people become aware of.

Managing anxiety however is not a real long term solution.
 
The name itself gives you a clue to its impact: you learn to
manage anxiety but not to heal it.  You might get temporary relief
but inevitably the anxiety returns.
 
I don’t teach anxiety management. I teach people how to heal their
anxiety problem for good. I call it speed healing anxiety.
 
The 1 Simple trick I want to share with you today is called
the ‘defuse’ trick.
 
 
The Defuse Trick  
 
Anxiety is nothing more than nervous energy in our body.
 
This energy rises and falls in wave like formations.
 
Think of it like you’re bobbing around in the ocean and every now
and then a wave rises up in front of you.
 
These are the waves of nervous energy.
 
When you resist the wave you get tossed around and scared but
when you move with it you ride up and over it and eventually lose
your fear of the waves.
 
The waves of anxiety rise up, peak and then fall back down.
They always peak and then subside away. Up and down they go.
They only become problem (disorder) if you react to
them in the wrong way.
 
The ‘defuse’ trick is about retraining how you
instinctively react to anxiety.
 
It’s your first point of contact and it’s a very important step to
get right from the beginning.
Anxiety often comes out of nowhere and then escalates really fast.
The initial trigger of anxiety can be caused by several different
things (e.g. exhaustion, stress, poor diet) but its rapid escalation
is always down to a simple question.
 
That question is…what if?
 
What if I drive my car on the highway and I have a panic attack?
 
What if faint in public, who will help me?

What if I get sick or lose my job?
 
What if my mind never stops racing with anxious thoughts?
 
Since prehistoric times our minds have been wired to seek out
potential threats and to then avoid them.
Unlike today we used to live in a dangerous life or death
environment and ‘what if’s’ were a useful cognitive process
that developed to keep us out of immediate danger.
 
‘What if that shadow behind that bush is a predator?
Best to back away”
 
Today however we do not live around dangerous predators
and our minds frequently turn inwards looking for those same
life threatening situations which are almost always
imagined or exaggerated.
 
‘What if that pounding heart means I am about to
have a heart attack?’
 
‘What if I lose my job and can’t feed myself or my family?’
 
If anxious ‘what if’s’ are not quickly defused, they tend to spiral
out of control, leaping from one catastrophic thought to another.
 
Before you know it these ‘what ifs’ have triggered a tidal wave
of adrenaline and fear.
 
What if?…What if?…And then what if ?
 
You cant stop the initial waves of anxiety.
 
They manifest outside your control.
What you can control is your reaction to those waves by
choosing the right response.
 
In order to defuse these anxious ‘what ifs’ you need to answer
the question quickly and limit the potential for the anxiety to increase.
 
A good strong response to a ‘what if’ is:
 
‘So what! ‘
 
What if I drive my car on the highway and I have a panic attack?
So what! I’ll pull over and get through it like I have always
done in the past.

What if faint in public, who will help me?
 
So what! If I faint I faint. Someone will come to help me and
in two minutes I will be conscious again.
 
What if my mind never stops racing with thoughts?
 
So what! Thoughts are just thoughts and cannot harm me.
Eventually my anxious mind will settle.
 
It doesn’t matter if you don’t fully believe in your own responses
to these questions, the key point here is to quickly defuse the
build up of fear by answering the ‘what if’ with a strong
enough response.
 
As long as you come up with something reassuring and
dismissive of the initial ‘what if’ thought it will have the
desired effect.
 
To make your response even more effective have a sense
of humor with your replies.
 
Humor is the fastest way to disengage your anxious mind.
 
An anxious thought can be diminished in a flash of laughter.
 
Answering with ‘so what’ is effective because it neutralize
the fear and places you back into a position of power.  
 
If ‘so what’ does not feel like the right response for you,
then use ‘whatever’ or ‘oh well’.
 
For example ‘whatever’ is a useful reply if you suddenly feel
a wave of anxious discomfort that comes out of nowhere.
 
The wave hits you hard but instead of even allowing ‘what
if’s’ to dominate your thinking, you respond to it with a
‘whatever’ ‘its just nervous arousal, no big deal’
 
Defusing anxiety as soon as it manifests with a ‘so what’ / ‘whatever’
type response is the very start of your recovery.
 
It’s a great start but you now need to now keep moving along
with the anxiety to discharge it fully and allow your nervous
system to rest and fully desensitize.
 
You can achieve that by implementing the 21-7 Technique((TM))
as taught in my program Panic Away.
 
Panic Away teaches you how to speed heal your
anxiety problem naturally.

Let me finish by saying that panic attacks are so very treatable.
 
Any doctor or therapist who tells you that you just have to put up
with them or ‘manage’ them for the rest of your life is simply wrong.
 
Just coping with this problem or learning to ‘manage’ it is unacceptable.
 
You can end your panic attacks for good – please don’t let anyone
convince you otherwise.
 
All it takes is the right guidance and your commitment to getting better.
 
Helping you to feel like your old carefree self again is the ultimate goal.
 
You have been dealing with this as bravely as you could – now let me
help you the rest of the way. Learn more here.
