Anxiety relief breathing that can help you feel calmer every time you practice. And the beauty of these techniques is that nobody else will know you're doing it, unless of course you decide to share because you just discovered that controlling your breath really does help you reign in your mind, slow your heart rate, calm racing thoughts, and feel generally more at ease.
Dissociation is that awful feeling of disconnection that often occurs with anxiety. It's the feeling of not being in touch with your surroundings or the people around you. We all dissociate sometimes when we zone out and retreat into "another world".
We do it when we daydream, and we do it during intense periods of creativity. But dissociation becomes a problem when we feel uncomfortably out of touch.
Anxiety feels bad enough without the additional stress of random pains, which can at times be really severe. No-one likes pain and when you're already anxious and possibly prone to worrying over your health, random pain can easily increase your anxiety.
It's easy to get caught in a loop of pain and panic. You know the pains are real, you can feel that sometimes they are really sudden and intense, but the chances are that doctors and medical tests won't find anything solid to act upon.
