Thankyou for the great post
You have mentioned an important point here as I have relative that has had ongoing anxiety and I mentioned to 'have a cold shower'...when she was feeling super anxious.....and yes....the cold water diffused the anxiety in a heartbeat! Even though it was short term relief it was a huge help for her to re-focus
Anxiety of any type or level can be minimized/reduced.....and you have mentioned a great method to accomplish doing so...Excellent post Samsonsam!
you have helped more people than you know ....especially with anticipatory anxiety
my kind thoughts
