Could ‘Blocking’ Behaviors Be What’s Keeping Your Stress And Anxiety Alive?

blocking behaviors keeping your stress and anxiety alive

There are three obsessive behaviors that you are likely to be engaging in that impeded your healing process and preventing you from enjoying a stress and even an anxiety free life. Recognizing these barriers can be a great first step toward getting rid of the problems that go with being too stressed and anxious.

Obsessive Negativity

You don’t want the world to view you in this way do you?

The first is obsessive negativity. When you are obsessively negative, it means that you have a tendency toward being “negative” about people, places, situations, and things in your life. Perhaps you find yourself saying things like “I can’t do this!” or “No one understands!” or “Nothing ever works!”, for example. You may be doing this unconsciously, but essentially you have what’s known as a “sour grapes” attitude, and it holds you back from knowing what it’s like to view life from positive lenses and enjoy the beauty in yourself and people around you!

“There’s a whole world out there for you… a world with happiness and positive thinking.”

Obsessive Perfectionism

Then you have obsessive perfectionism. When you engage in obsessive perfectionism, you are centered on trying to do everything “just so” to the point of driving yourself into an anxious state of being (no wonder you have stress and anxiety in your life, right?). You may find yourself making statements such as, “I have to do this right, or I’ll be a failure!” or “If I am not precise, people will be mad at me!” Again, this behavior may be totally under the threshold of your awareness, but it interferes greatly with your ability to enjoy things without feeling “uptight” and “stressed.”

Obsessive Analysis

How great is this quote really!

Finally there is obsessive analysis. When you are obsessed about analyzing things, you find yourself wanting to re-hash a task or an issue over and over again. For instance, you might find yourself making statements such as, “I need to look this over, study it, and know it inside and out… or else I can’t relax!” or “If I relax and let things go without looking them over repeatedly, things go wrong!”

“While analytical thinking is an excellent trait, if it’s done in excess you never get to stop and smell the roses because you’re too busy trying to analyze everything and everyone around you.”

Gaining insight into this type of behavior is one of the most important keys to letting go of stress and anxiety, and eventually getting complete power over your anxiety. If you find yourself engaging in any of the above “blocking behaviors”, there are two things you can do to help yourself:

1) First, ask the people you know, love, and trust, “Am I negative about things?”, “Do I complain a lot?”, and “Am I difficult to be around?” This may be hard for you to listen to, as the truth sometimes hurts a great deal. But the insight you will get from others’ assessment of you is invaluable, and you’ll know precisely how others see you. Accept their comments as helpful info, and know that you will gain amazing insights from what you hear.

Time to get that dusty journal out of your book drawer once and for all.

2) Second, keep a journal to write down and establish patterns of when you are using “blocking behaviors.” Even if you are not thrilled with the idea of writing, you can make little entries into a note book or journal each day. The great part is that you’ll begin to see patterns in your behavior that reveal exactly what you’re doing to prevent yourself from curing your anxiety, and stopping your anxiety disorder naturally. You need to recognize these blockages first so you can move into the “healing” stage and conquer your stress and anxiety naturally as many others have once and for all.

An End The Anxiety Program Testimonial From Mia, Awesome Transformation

Ever since high school, I suffered from intense vertigo attacks that interrupted my day and bombarded my life with depression, hopelessness, fear, and deep worry. These vertigo attacks were the result of my ongoing battle with anxiety and depression. My strongest concern was that these attacks would happen my entire life and, except for the numbing effects of various powerful medications, these attacks and feelings of anxiety were incurable. Whenever my vertigo attacks would strike, I would experience panic, lose all sense of orientation, diminish to self-hatefulness, and feel like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. My vertigo attacks were not the common feeling of spinning, but rather a magnetic sensation that all surrounding objects were surging and moving towards me with varying magnetic intensity. These attacks would strike at any time and in any place, so the terrifying randomness of their occurrence would leave me in a constant state of worry, fear, and anxiety about when and where the next episode would happen.

One time, I experienced an episode while driving in my car, and it was in this moment that I yearned for the light, a cure, or some answer that would lift me out of this anxiety abyss. The medications only served as Band-Aids masking the issue, and I needed something life-changing, healing, and completely transforming to turn my life around and bring a sense of true promise to my experience. When I told a friend about this horrendous vertigo attack that occurred while driving on the highway, this friend advised me to check out an interesting online program called the End The Anxiety Program by The Anxiety Guy.

As soon as I got to a computer, I purchased and downloaded this easy-to-understand online anxiety program. I listened to its many incredible main audio files and my deep-rooted feelings of anxiety were steadily melting away. At first, I did still experience relentless vertigo attacks, but with patience and courage inspired by the program’s phenomenal guidance. I was able see progress and gradual healing. The End The Anxiety program has a checking in system to keep in contact with clients who suffer from anxiety every three days, and through this system, I was given consistent care by mentors and coaches who have been in my shoes in the past. This is a fantastic cheap investment for anyone searching to stop, reverse, and heal their generalized anxiety disorder or panic attacks naturally. All mainstream medications were not helping, but rather leaving me hopeless in a daily routine of vertigo attacks and anxiety. I am so grateful for this End The Anxiety Program and the freedom that I can now experience and enjoy. I feel completely liberated from all past anxiety, fear, and depression, and I highly recommend this program!

I want to thank Mia for her email to me, and trust in the end the anxiety program and hope her story inspires others to choose a natural route to stopping an anxiety disorder. If you’d like more information on the end the anxiety program visit www.theanxietyguy.com.
