The Hand Map for Understanding Your Emotions
Want to learn how to get rid of anxiety? As you walk down the road of life, from time to time you will bump — ! —into difficult situations.
The five possible pathways you can take from there will determine how you feel. Seeing something ahead that feels like it might hurt you will cause anxious feelings to bubble up. Back up to refocus on the bump. Then take the thumb route of problem-solving.
Worrying instead of problem-solving may keep you on the Freeze Route. The anxiety generated by worrying may block you from thinking about solution options.
As long as your thinking capacities—your abilities to gather information and to generate solution options—stay immobilized, you are likely to continue to feel anxious. That’s because the problem will still be there.
Scroll down to the videos and worksheets below to learn ways to return to the sunshine of problem-solving mode. With thinking about a problem and seeking solutions, your anxiety is likely to dissipate like fog on a summer morning.
