Anxiety leaves me exhausted

In this week's podcast we're responding to the following question and sharing tips to help recover from the low mood and energy that can follow spells of intense anxiety...

"I use virtually all of the wonderful techniques you've outlined in the show and use many of the audio products you've developed - with wonderful results. But every now and then, especially in the fall, I get hit with a very powerful anxiety for several days at a time. The anxiety leaves me totally wiped out and I find I sink into low energy and depression. Are there any strategies or remedies you would suggest for strengthening myself as I recover from a bout of anxiety?"

This happens to me too. And isn't strange how it hits hardest in colder weather? When it hits me, I try to do some of the things that really make me happy. I ignore housework and laundry if I must and sit by a window where I can see a pretty scene read a favorite book instead or (if I have the energy) go visit my favorite book store and just enjoy the peaceful ambiance and breathe in the smell of old books. This may not work for everyone, but do what makes you feel at peace and happy when the blues strike. Worth a try.

Ugh! Exhaustion from anxiety. It's definitely one of the worst side effects. You just get tired to life through it

So true that anxiety would leave you exhausted. It is a stress response after all and the body is on high alert which chemicals buzzing around everywhere preparing for fight or flight. How relieving is it when you face a fear and then it feels like exhilaration? Anxiety not only affects the mind. It affects the body and all way and rhythms of all the systems of the body.
