trevor borocz johnson Posted February 23 #1 Share Posted February 23 This is just a theory of mine but here's how excitement works. Something, good or bad, attracts your attention and your senses send a signal to the brain. The first system to be effected is your breathing, as you change the rate at which you oxidize energy to use. Then your blood circulation is effected by your breathing, for whatever reason your tailbone starts to wag, and then the wagging causes a dizziness that amplify's emotion in the vestibular system causing anxiety. Pauses in breathing and different breathing types occur preceding and during anxiety. Monitoring when you don't breathe during anxiety will snap you out of a spiral and you can clear your mind of spiraling emotional influence on your thought. Once you start to monitor your breathing after a minute of doing it its hard to get anxiety pain that travels between the head and stomach. Just making breathing obvious to your mind will throw a wrench into your anxiety systems and change your breathing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
