Something that I have found to really help me with my anxiety is learning psychology.
I took a two psychology coarse in high school a type of beginner one, and a AP one. And even before that I had been interested in psychology.
I did find that it helped to with my anxiety with multiple aspects of it.
It helped with knowing what the names for the things that I did was. And it helped with knowing that some of the things that happened, like with the thoughts that kept coming up over and over, and sometimes thoughts that I would never think about. Learning that it had a name, ‘Obsessive Thoughts’, and knowing that it wasn’t just me helped.
And it helped with knowing what helps with anxiety and how it works. Knowing all of that helps with not just having to go on blind faith that something is supposed to help. And it also knowing what it does to you when you do it that can help.
Another thing is that when you are feeling anxiety symptoms and knowing what it is that can help. When you are going through an anxiety you can know what it is that it is that’s happening and know what it is.
And learning psychology can help you learn more about yourself and how you work and why you do what you do.
Knowing the reason why you do the things you do, and the reasons you react the way you do can be really helpful in the long run.
Knowing all of this can really help to center yourself, and to sooth some of the anxiety that you feel.
Not to mention that it can help stop some of the anxiety problems after learning how your brain becomes this way.
So all in all, I am someone who really recommenced learning psychology. And I do think that learning psychology can be something that can benefit a person’s life.
Knowing yourself this was is a good way to know how not only you react in situations but how others (look up ‘Foot In The Door’ and ‘The Bystander Effect’ with Psychology attached to it)
Because learning this about your self can sooth out some things in your life.
