What Spiraling Thoughts Can Tell Us

Feeling anxious can be the brain’s way to protect us

Our minds and bodies are connected and when the brain senses a threat, thoughts and heartbeat can begin to race, leading to a feeling of spiraling. 

This can happen in difficult situations, but if it’s occurring more often or even on a regular basis, it can impact how much we enjoy our lives and how we interact with other people. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to take steps.
