Here are six surprising things that anxiety might be causing you to do.
Sometimes we think we have one problem, but it’s really another problem. Some of these problems include eating, drinking, shopping, isolating yourself and keeping yourself separate from other people, not going out, not socializing, working too hard, yelling, etc.
So if you think that the issue is that you can’t control your eating, or drinking, if you keep shopping, if you don’t feel like being social, if you don’t know why you keep yelling at your kids or your husband, or if you don’t want to be around anybody, it might not be about any of those things. It might just be about what’s going on inside of you and those feelings of anxiety. So learning how to soothe, breathe, and take care of those feelings, automatically makes all those other situations improve.
