If you exercise excessively, you may have anxiety issues. Here's how to recover.
In cases of excessive exercising, a person treats their own body as an object rather than as a subject (i.e., they experience themselves as "you" instead of "I"). This objectification of the self allows one to feel a sense of control regarding some aspect of oneself, or one's relationships with others, that otherwise seems out of control.
What is Emotional Manipulation? How does it work? How can I handle it?

This exercise is especially effective when you can’t sleep or when you experience anxiety attacks. If you worry a lot, or obsessively think about future events and problems when you should be concentrating on other things, follow these simple steps:
1. Write it down. If you’re feeling anxious or worried, or you can’t stop thinking about some event that hasn’t happened yet, take a few moments to write down whatever is worrying you.
Do you often engage in emotional eating because of your relationship or dating woes?
Do you consider yourself to be an emotional eater?
Do you often emotionally overeat because of your feelings of anxiety and frustration about your relationship?
Or, do you feel so frustrated because you keep meeting and dating the "wrong men" and you turn to food for comfort because of this?
Do you believe that safety comes from having control over getting another's love?
I was having a phone session with Randy.
"When I am around most people, I am generally fairly relaxed. But the moment I'm around my mother or Gineen (his wife of 12 years), I get anxious and often angry. I can't figure this out. I love both of them, so why do I feel anxious and angry around them?"
DON’T DISMISS NEGATIVE EMOTIONS AS “GETTING OUT OF THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BED.” USE THEM FOR HEALING!
You know those mornings when things just aren’t right, when you may have had a bad dream but don’t remember it? You’re grumpy, you don’t want to go about your day, or you even feel full-on depressed. Maybe you’re laden with fear and anxiety.
Your actual day may not be ideal, but to have intense negative emotions – or the absence of any at all – is actually not about the present.
The grass won't be greener on the other side if you spend more time watering your own lawn.
Jealousy can get the best of anyone. It can creep up when least expected. Triggered by seeing photos of a boyfriend’s former lover with amazing hair and a perfect figure, a neighbor pulling up in the driveway with a shiny new car or a best friend who arrives for a dinner date carrying a ‘too die for’ handbag.
The Cause of Stress is in your Mind not in the Events of the Day. Stress or Not, It's Your Choice!
Modern life is busy. Developing good stress management and good stress relief skills is a necessity. Almost all of us have more to do then we can possibly get done each day.

Your prescription for a broken heart: Take two of these suggestions & call a friend in the morning.
Love hurts. Let's admit it. Even in the very best of relationships, things are said and done that hurt feelings, bruise egos or leave you feeling a little injured. Wearing your heart on your sleeve comes with the risk of exposure - to both joy and sorrow.
There are various stages of a broken heart. There's a mild broken heart, which tends to fix itself on its own, and goes away in a short amount of time. It usually doesn't require too much attention because the wound will quickly heal.
We worry ourselves sick a lot of the time. Some of us worry ourselves to death. Why worry so much?
Worrying is a natural mental and emotional activity, an easy habit to fall into. Our brains are designed (or evolved) to pay attention to danger. When the lion or wolf attacks, we need to be prepared to run like hell, so fear prepares our bodies to do so by releasing hormones that direct the blood flow to the running muscles and change our breathing for the emergency state.
