    "Up in your head"

    I want to know what this means in the following context:
    Anxiety and worry tend to keep you "up in your head."

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello Maria

    It seems to mean "self-absorbed". You're "up in your head", ignoring the outside world, in the same way that a teenager is up in his room with his headphones on and the curtains closed.

    See you,
    MrP

    Hope I will never be in this situation!
