Today, I want to talk to you about all the energy you leak out and tend to waste when you’re feeling anxious. When we are in a state of anxiety, our mind is usually racing with all sorts of unnecessary thoughts like:
– “What if this bad thing happens?”
– “What if my partner and I don’t make it?”
– “What if so and so from work responds poorly to me when I speak up and say something?”
– “What if I offended my friend, and they’re just not saying anything?”
Those extra thoughts, and the frantic energy they create, really waste a significant amount of our units of time and energy. In my personal life, I recently resolved a big issue that had been causing a lot of anxiety for me for a while. When it closed out, and there was no longer any reason to be anxious about it, it was really remarkable to see the before and after effects.
I often think of anxiety as like being in your home, and running your furnace on a cold winter’s day. If the windows and front door are cracked open, that furnace is going to run and run and run. But you’re still never going to bring the temperature inside up to a comfortable level. Instead, you are just going to waste an incredible amount of energy with all of the leaks and drafts. I feel like anxiety does something very similar to us.
