I think we have the answer right there. No wonder you're anxious.
What are you using? Perhaps a saucepan handle is a little ambitious?
Try standing up as straight as you can. Now are your knuckles still on the floor.
footflaps - I know it sounds strange, Anxiety is one of the reasons I bike, to de-stress and forget about all the worries in life and it works, But running seems to effect me in a strange way and I feel tense and anxious during the night and most of the following day.
I'm going to try a few different things, such as early morning run before work - leave a couple of days between runs and perhaps try a natural remedy to aid relaxation and sleep.
If all this fails I'm off to the GP.
