The professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, Michelle Newman, together with a graduate student in psychology, Hanju Kim, established an interesting fact:
For some people with anxiety disorder, relaxation act negatively, increasing their anxiety.
Scientists have suggested that the reason may be the fact that some people like to worry, thus calming down.
And their simple superstition calms them: if I was worried, and nothing bad happened, then I need to continue to worry.
Therefore, before you perform any technique, not just relaxing, be prepared that the effect will be the opposite of what is expected.
Nevertheless, you should not completely abandon the relaxation techniques, if at first you become more anxious. Work on your thinking, believe that relaxation methods will help you, and you will get a positive result.
