Think of some activities you really enjoy doing. If you could do one of these activities without feeling stressed out, without having anxiety, and without worrying about your family, kids, job, etc. how would that feel? Why do you not do this activity more often? What steps could you take to do this activity stress free and without worrying about other things? Do this activity this week. hmmm I'm actually a little confused on this one. all the activities I really enjoy doing are physical and the only reason I would have anxiety over it is due to pain or fear of pain. weight training and exercise in general is my favorite activity and I actually have been doing that regularly for a little over a month now. one thing I have given up is playing/wrestling with my dogs outside. I actually did start to do this earlier in the year but haven't done it regularly. doing things like this in a more uncontrolled environment causes some fear of pain or 'injury' probably due to the notion that you shouldn't bend or twist and should always be careful not to hurt yourself. I think the only step to doing this activity without fear is to do it over and over to reinforce that I'm not going to get injured doing it and even if I did get a legitimate injury like a sprained ankle or broken bone those things heal fairly quickly.
