Anxiety

Anxiety is your body’s response to stress. Anxiety is a fear or worry about what’s to come. However, if a response to such anxious situations is extreme, repeats constantly, and interferes with your day-to-day life, you may want to seek help to overcome anxiety.

 

You might be affected by anxiety if you are going through:

    • Constantly worry about things you can’t control.
    • Feeling pressured by life events such as family issues, workplace issues, grief, trauma etc.
    • Unable to overcome fears.
    • Self-doubt and have a negative outlook on life.

Impact on Life

Anxiety can have a profound impact on an individual’s mental and physical health. It can lead to symptoms such as feeling tense, nervous, and having difficulty relaxing, as well as physical effects like rapid breathing, heart palpitations, butterflies in your stomach, sweating or digestive issues. You feel that you cannot control your body’s response to your situation.

 

Furthermore, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States and the UK, affecting a significant portion of the population.

Management

To manage anxiety, various strategies can be employed, including self-care techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, exercise, and seeking social support.

 

Additionally, avoiding substances like alcohol and caffeine, as well as engaging in stress management techniques, can help alleviate anxiety symptoms. Seeking professional help, such as CBT therapy, counselling or medication, is also recommended for individuals with anxiety.

 

It’s important to recognize the impact of anxiety on both mental and physical well-being and to seek appropriate support and treatment when needed.
