Do you really understand the psychology behind pacing back and forth?
After reading through this post, you will learn a lot about why people pace back and forth.
People do a lot of things without an understanding of why they do them.
Sometimes because they see people do them and many times it may be as a result of reflex.
Irrespective of it being a reflex action or a tradition, I think you should know what they meant and how it works.
So, in this piece, let’s examine the art of pacing back and forth.
The psychology behind pacing back and forth
The art of pacing back and forth has been linked to the state of being nervous.
In this state, people may react differently depending on what causes nervousness.
On the reflex action is that people pace back and forth.
This is not to mean that pacing back and forth is bad but to help you understand it.
It is good if you know what is going on in such situations.
When anyone is nervous irrespective of the cause, the adrenal produces lots of adrenaline in the body.
Forget the big word, it’s just a way your body helps you to overcome things like shock, nervousness, or when you suddenly fall into a dangerous situation.
As a result of the increase in adrenaline, the energy level jumps up.
As the energy level jumps up, other reactions follow suit in your body system.
The breathing may become shallow.
Of course, at such a time, you will not be able to think clearly.
This is usually in hard situations or danger, so you may not notice these things.
It is the response to these series of events that makes people pace back and forth.
Somehow the generated energy must be used.
This is a terrible situation to be and if care is not taken, it may result in damaging health conditions.
To avoid such unfortunate health conditions, there are two simple things you can do.
Simple enough to save yourself the stress of visiting the hospital now and then.
And of course, having to be paying high medical bills for treatment.
The first step to take is to take a deep breath.
Taking a deep breath has been noted to reduce stress and help people with anxiety to think well.
Here is how it works; the deep breath helps to cleanse the blood of the carbon monoxide.
Once this happens, the result will be clearer thinking.
This will be accompanied by normal breathing flow.
The other thing that may be done is exercise which is what people do when they pace back and forth.
All they are trying to achieve is to burn the energy and the adrenaline.
Once this is done for a few minutes, it will eventually burn the energy and the adrenaline which will, in turn, lower the rate of their anxiety.
Although this is a sort of reflex action it all works for the wellbeing of the person in question.
I do hope this piece has answered your question on why people pace back and forth.
And I believe other details can help you to maximize the moment or help others in such situations.
