Yes; these are some of the techniques I learned at 11 to help me self-regulate anxiety and I’ve been practicing ever since. Practice didn’t make perfect but it did allow for make-do; and it helps. I can read my body up to a certain point, sometimes I get stuck and am surprised when I realize what my emotions really are at that moment but when i do their power goes away

    going to other sources on the subject:
    “Anxious ruminations are usually about the future. Things we are scared of happening, things that we want to somehow keep from happening, or fears that we are working to avoid. Anxious ruminations are usually about control- trying to keep our lives within our control.”
    Ah – there we are. unconscious anxious (GAD) rumination – trying to keep lives within control. Yeah, now I remember the trigger and why it might relate to worry about the near future.
    Good – now I can work on it.

  • awesome! yeah it sounds like yours was a deeper one. Mine are thankfully usually shallow and short lived. This one got my back twitching for some reason. Now I have to stretch some muscles a bit, give myself a “so what if that bad thing happens? So what if it’s 10x worse than that still?” self-talk and it’ll pass.
