When Anxiety Becomes a Problem:
Although feeling anxious and stressed are normal under certain circumstances, if you are feeling overly anxious and stressed most of the time, you should be aware that such a state is not normal or healthy. Many who are anxious to the point that it interferes with quality of life may think that they should be able to just cope with life better and judge themselves.
Although there are definitely emotional coping tools that may be needed, it may also be true that your physiological chemistry has changed and that it isn't just emotional anymore.. You may need help to get back on track.

Painting, writing and dancing are all activities you can do all on your own and may open the way to a path of expression that helps your mood tremendously.
Once you find a path that is helpful, then you may consider joining a group and getting back into the flow of life with others.

If the very idea of joining a group is too much, try watching some online exercise videos or group dance videos and rehearse being part of the group. There are ways to ease the mind into a new idea.
