Tour Meeting – it’s only 30 min, why do I feel so anxious?


I am noticing anxiety in my F line and working to trace back what the thought is. It almost feels like the thought is subconscious. How can I better identify when the thought happens? It feels like my body skips straight to the feeling of anxiety.

C: In 3 days, I have a meeting to plan a client tour that will last 30 minutes.
T: I don’t even want to do this tour.
F: Anxious
A: Distract myself writing into Ask a Coach, do meditations to keep my mind off the meeting, worry about the meeting, dread the meeting
R: I make the meeting about the tour as inconvenient as possible (?).

I’m not sure this is the thought prompting anxiety. Some other possible thoughts are:

  • The people in the meeting will expect me to do everything.
  • I’m only doing this stupid tour as a favor.
  • They are ungrateful.
  • I can’t say no to this tour.
  • I should have never agreed to this tour.
  • I can’t believe I’m expected to do this tour.
