So what is hanging on to our stress?

Needless to say - my typical response to feeling uncomfortable was to hang on to that feeling by forcing myself to analyse it. This is referred to as 'Analysis Paralysis' and is something that starts the whole spiral of negative and destructive panic.

Whilst we 'think' we remedying our stress by reasoning with it/trying to find measures to control it - inadvertently we are holding onto it.
