Ryan Reynolds Opens Up About Facing His Anxieties; Says It Was At The Cost Of His 'Well Being'

Ryan revealed to the magazine that in doing that, he faces anxieties about doing everything all the time.

“I think maybe it’s just that Canadian sensibility: ‘Well, I said I was going to, so I have to deliver this.’ I will do that at the cost of my own well-being sometimes,” he shared.

Ryan added that he does “fixate on things. That’s sort of the engine of anxiety. I lay awake at night, wrapping and unwrapping every possible scenario. I slept at a perfect right angle for so many years.”

“I tend to pave over anxiety with work and, to a lesser extent, achievement,” he shared. “You want to tick boxes sometimes. So these days, my goal is to be as present as I can and not just tick a box just to do it. I’m fully embracing and living that right now.

“It’s been amazing,” Ryan says. “Heartfelt personal-growth quote: check.”

Ryan‘s admissions about anxiety come just after he announced he’d be stepping back to focus more on being present in his private life.
