Do you know the phrase “Making a mountain out of a molehill”?
This can be all too familiar for people who experience anxiety
One fleeting thought can trigger a spiral of related thoughts and worries
And almost immediately what might have seemed like only a minor worry has become an overwhelming thought
When you notice yourself spiralling, it can help to stop and question the thought
You might want to ask yourself whether the thought is a fact, and try to find evidence to support or debunk your worry
You’ll likely find that the thought is just that...a thought!
If you are wanting support to manage worry or anxiety, please book an appointment with one of our friendly psychologists
