The more you are aware of your patterns, the more you will be able to begin interrupting your procrastinating behavior. In time, they might cease to exist altogether! 10-17 = Very Low He was on a boat. It was dark, but despite the darkness, Michael could see the water in the starlight. The salty smell from summer vacations past told him that he was on the ocean. As his sight adjusted to his surroundings, the motion bothered him less. Feeling around, he found that he was sitting on a large pile of coiled rope. Well, he thought it was rope. It was rougher and less uniform than any rope he'd ever used. It felt like it was made out of grass. Michael suddenly remembered that he still held Chamberlain's paper in one hand and the pouch in the other. Excited and somewhat amazed that the pouch had come with him, Michael hurriedly placed the paper in the pouch and buttoned it. For the anxious, constants are important. A stable space that doesn't change, a space we can count on to be the same every time we return to it. Separation anxiety is the feeling of being ripped away from this safety blanket. It can be a place or a person, but the anxiety comes from a certainty suddenly becoming an uncertainty. Separation anxiety is most common between babies and mothers. The kid has grown up with the mother as a constant, so prolonged periods of separation cause distress. This is of course an important part of becoming a fully-fledged human person, as we learn independence and taxes and stuff.

However, it is thought that this early separation can also be the root of separation anxiety within adults; We've all met couples where one can never do anything without the other, but we'll let Freud cover that. Adults usually grow out of this (unless you're a bit Norman Bates, in which case this article may not be strong enough to help you understand that problem, I'd recommend a good therapist or barman) and learn to cope with a certain level of uncertainty in their lives. A very low score indicates this type of task approach is not very relevant in your life. If you have a higher score on the opposite form of task approach, then your pattern is quite clear. However, if both your scores are low or very low, congratulations! You have either done a great deal of work to get here, or you are fortunate to have a healthy approach to completing the tasks in your life. Assessment # 3: Organizational Style An individual with a well-functioning nervous system regularly experiences a sense of confidence, coherence, flexibility, and is resilient in the face of stress or challenge. Organizational style is a measure of the nervous system's tendency to operate outside of this happy homeostasis, due to unprocessed trauma remaining in the body. The healthy zone for the nervous system operates primarily within a window of tolerance (as described by Ogden, Minton, and Pain, 2006), where one can tolerate occasional dips out of this range. However, a disorganized nervous system frequently functions above or below this window, with too much (hyperarousal) or too little (hypoarousal) activation. Hyperarousal, also known as fragmentation, involves activation of the sympathetic branch of the nervous system (flight-or-fight) and results in a fragmentation of the system, in which the individual has difficulty managing overwhelming emotions or racing thoughts, and may feel on guard. Then he remembered the article from Truman and King Solomon's leather scroll. Removing them from his pocket, Michael placed the first two priceless notes inside the colonel's pouch with the third and shoved it back into his jeans pocket. Carefully, Michael rose. He was stiff and somewhat sore as if he'd been still for a long time. Looking up, Michael saw a massive broadcloth--a sail--and smiled. He had sailed with his father some on the lake, but not with a sail this huge! Dad would really get a kick out of this, he said aloud.

Suddenly, Michael felt very alone and very tired. Sinking down into the pile of rope, he laid his head back as the tears welled up in his eyes. How was his dad? However, if your brain can only function properly in one scenario, when that scenario is uncertain in some way, the brain panics, it malfunctions, it breaks, because the human brain is a moron. My separation anxiety stems from a process of routine. I am calm in my routine. I plan things, I plan them meticulously and to a bizarre level of detail. My levels of uncertainty come from a change to this routine. I know this sounds more like obsessive-compulsive disorder (another, if not more extreme, form of anxiety) but I refuse to be one of those people who trivialises a serious mental health condition by saying,Yeah, I'm a little bit OCD. <a href=''>You're</a> fussy. <a href=''>You</a> like things neat. <a href=''>You're</a> not OCD. <a href=''>Keeping</a> your living room tidy is slightly different to a life-altering series of physical and emotional tics with nonsensical triggers and no off switch. <a href=''>Hypoarousal,</a> also known as rigidity, involves activation of the dorsal vagal branch of the vagus nerve and results in a sense of rigidity within the system, in which one tends toward emotional numbness, rigid thoughts and behaviors, as well as dissociation. <a href=''>Each</a> extreme comes with specific physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral tendencies. <a href=''>Anyone</a> can experience this nervous system dysregulation sometimes; <a href=''>Some</a> individuals bounce between the two. <a href=''>Understanding</a> your organizational style can help you identify areas in which you are struggling that you may not realize are due to the state of your nervous system. <a href=''>Completing</a> exercises tailored to your particular system may help you move toward a sense of inner peace, confidence, and harmony. <a href=''>Rigidity</a> <br /><br /><a href=''>I</a> follow a strict daily routine and feel upset when things don't go as planned. <a href=''>I</a> find it difficult to change my way of doing something even though it may not be successful. <a href=''>I</a> find myself doing things I should be doing instead of things I want to be doing. <a href=''>Would</a> he ever see him again? <a href=''>Or</a> his mom? <a href=''>Was</a> she worried about him? <a href=''>Had</a> ten minutes passed . <a href=''>Michael</a> felt a tugging on his sleeve and opened his eyes. <a href=''>It</a> was still dark, but he felt like he'd been sleeping forever. <a href=''>My</a> friend, a figure hissed urgently, please, if you will, come with me. <a href=''>After</a> being practically jerked to his feet, Michael followed the outline of a small, stocky man as he lightly stepped around barrels, ropes, and poles, working his way to the center of the boat. <a href=''>Trying</a> to keep up, Michael almost tripped several times, until, finally, the man stopped at the base of the mast. <a href=''>The</a> large pole, bigger around than Michael could have reached, rose up into the darkness. <a href=''>Anyway:</a> a break in my routine, or a wrinkle in a plan I have created, can result in anxiety and sometimes panic attacks for me. <a href=''>For</a> instance, I leave the house at the same time every morning, I walk to the tube stop, I know exactly where to stand on the platform so when I have to change tubes at London Bridge my door is exactly next to the connecting walkway between platforms. <a href='http://xn--101-8cd4f0b.xn--p1ai/user/stitchflower7/'>I</a> know the London Underground in a bizarrely accurate way, so can happily make detours if need be, but one morning I removed my headphones to hear the train announcer saying,This train will not stop at London Bridge due to overcrowding. I could feel my heart going faster but I controlled my breathing and put my headphones back on. At Waterloo the train announcer came on again: `Waterloo station has no access to the Northern Line due to a signal failure, please find another route. My original plan had failed. My backup plan had failed.

I exited the train and sat on the bench on the platform, wheezing as I felt my blood pressure rise, quickly tapping my fingers against my palms in an attempt to give me something to focus on. This is separation anxiety: it is irrational panic that makes you look like a hyperventilating penguin on a train platform during rush hour. Now for insomnia. I cannot tolerate it when things are out of order or disorganized. There are times when I feel like my eyes cannot focus clearly around me. I tend to get diarrhea. I tend to feel more fatigued than energized. There are times when I can't get moving, even though I want to. When I am somewhere I don't want to be, I mentally take myself elsewhere. I feel like I am in a fog and things around me seem unreal. My opinions are fairly stable and rarely change. My thinking is very black and white; I often do not feel emotionally connected to situations around me. Supporting the mainsail, it was covered in ropes and buckles. Without a glance at Michael, the man said simply, Up, and motioned with his hand for Michael to follow. The man climbed so fast that he was almost out of sight in seconds. Michael hurried to keep up, but it was like crawling through a spider's web. In only a short time, however, he felt a hand grasp the back of his shirt. The small man was very strong. He heaved Michael up, over the lip, and into a wooden cup built around the top of the mast.
