Best Techniques for Controlling Your Anxiety – 9

By Martin Seif, Ph.D. ABPP

Find the Triggers to Your Fear Spiral: Despite what you might sometimes feel, your terror does not come “out of the blue.” In truth, it comes from a rapid interplay between thoughts and feared feelings. They may surprise you because you do not become aware of the spiral until your fear level becomes very high. Learn to identify the “triggers” to this spiral so that you can begin to manage your fear when your number is at a one or two and before it increases to a high level. It is much easier to turnoff this fear spiral at low levels than at high levels.
