How to stop racing thoughts

I woke up again this morning with those negative racing thoughts. My chest is tight, my heart pounding, and I feel very tense.  My negative thoughts have no basis, I don't know why I am thinking them, I am full of doubts, worry and what if's.

How did I get here and how do I stop thinking this way?  It is paralyzing and I just want to cry all day.

I feel like this most days. Have you tried therapy? I get horrible symptoms and thoughts. Try some excersize and deep breathing, keeping busy, and nice relaxing things to take your mind off it and maybe lift your mood x
