Other things I did I always tried to stay positive and just when anxiety was just about to control what I did or did not do I would say ‘You have had enough of my life you are not having anymore’.
I also got into meditation a little, maybe just 3 times a week for half an hour.
You might become stressed by a job interview, the build-up to exams, a big match or lots of other day to day stuff.
This is normal and stress can help us get motivated for dealing with problems and pressure.
All this mental planning was constant and it could be a simple trip out with friends or going round to a family gathering, I was obsessed how I as coming across and how things were going, then filling myself with negative thoughts about how bad my life was and how it was not fair that others could enjoy themselves and not me, more thoughts on how to fix it, my mind just never switched off.
How I over came this was to say to myself that this was the last time I went over something that had happened and the last time I planned for something that was up and coming and more than that I would not entertain another negative thought.
You start by finding a quiet place where you can lie down.
