Maybe I Should Stop Trying to Recover and Simply Rest?
If you've undertaken a recovery program for your anxiety, you know just how much work it takes. Some days your anxiety will feel better than others, but in the back of your mind the temptation to take a break will be stronger on the days when things don't seem to be working out.
If taking a rest means going back to avoidance and safety-seeking behaviors then the answer is no, you shouldn’t stop. You'll be undoing all your good work and not facing down the problems.
