Re: Does Your Anxiety Affect The Way You Walk?
I remember it used to. In jr high I walked with my head down, always, and I walked very fast. It's interesting that two people accosted me while I was walking home this way. They must have felt the need to reach out to an obviously troubled person. One of those people became a very close friend. =)
The past few years, I've been forcing myself to do stuff normally. I forced myself to walk straight, and look straight ahead, and look at people, and to keep walking even if they're walking toward me. I also made myself keep eye contact while conversing. I try to make my default face pleasant with a small smile, but I worry that it looks fake. =/
