My anxiety has been out of control the last few days... Almost a week so I am really trying to just maintain and not over eat. My emotions get the best of me and I eat. A lot.

I have been careful to watch how much I eat and been trying to workout but I need to take care of myself right now. Food yesterday was good besides bread and butter (1 slice) and 2 bites of mac and cheese. Today is good besides the one twix bar I had... Workout did not exist yesterday but my bag is packed today and I will go. I am concerned how much I will do because my heart rate is elevated.

I am not sure how to get it under control.

    I have a friend who works out to help his anxiety. It seems to calm him after a session on the stair master.

    Take care of you and don't forget to just breathe! emoticon

    I know what you mean; my emotions can completely change my eating habits.

    If it's not too personal, what sorts of things are you anxious about; maybe talking them out will help? Feel free to send me a personal message too, if you don't want to place it here or on my wall.

    Taking time to seriously meditate and relax helps me when I'm super stressed. I recommend starting with 2 -3 minutes and working your way up. Find a completely quiet place (or as quiet as you can) and sit and close your eyes. Don't move or fidget and just focus on your breathing. Breathe from your abdomen and not from your chest. You can probably google videos on "Abdominal Breathing" if you're not familiar.

    My Kung Fu instructor recommends 10 minutes of meditation a day for a healthy mind, but you really have to build up to it. This has inspired me to try to do this for myself too.

    *hugs* I hope you find some peace and calm in your life and overcome this anxiety. I'm here for you if you want to chat.
