Learned Something New

In learning to recognize that nervous and excited physically feel the same, I’ve discovered that in my mind anxiety and hungry feel the same…

Oh. I never made the connection before.

I went hungry so often and didn’t know when I’d have something I could eat, something that didn’t make me sick… well, who knew? Of course anxiety and hunger are intertwined for me.

I don’t need them as conjoined twins. How do I separate them? At this point, I know it’s helpful for me to see the connection, so I’m aware. I’ll be better able to make conscious decisions. And of course, practice.

  1. This makes sense. I also eat when I am bored or trying to stay awake. That is one advantage of becoming more aware is paying attention to what I am feeling and what do I do to ease that feeling.

    • I knew about the bored and staying awake. It never occurred to me I blended in anxiety.
