Is Your Anxiety Making You Feel Out Of Control?
Does it seem like you will never overcome those overwhelming feelings of fear and worry? Have your sleep patterns and eating patterns become erratic? Does your mind race from issue to issue, causing irrational thinking? Do you sometimes feel like you are going crazy? Maybe your anxious thoughts make you question your stability, especially if you have tried and failed at managing your worry. Or perhaps your anxiety has caused physical symptoms, such as racing heartbeat, perspiring, stomach illness, headaches and distorted vision. Does anxiety negatively affect your relationships at home, work or school? Do you wish you could feel healthier and get through the day without feeling anxious?
Living with anxiety can make day to day activities a struggle. Trouble falling asleep at night because of racing thoughts may cause you to feel perpetually exhausted. And, then upon waking in the morning you wonder how you will get through your day. If your worry stems from social anxiety, you might start to wonder if others around you can see that your mind appears to be imploding. In addition, some of your severe anxiety symptoms may occur during transition times when you are unaware of what will happen next, or do not know what to expect.
Anxiety Is One Of The Most Common Issues Today
You are not alone in your struggle to understand or manage your anxiety. As our society has become increasingly focused on what is “normal,” anxiety has become more prevalent. In addition, the modern stresses of everyday life such as finances, complex relationships and high academic or professional expectations all contribute to an anxious brain. Even though anxiety is common, it is important to take it seriously. Attempting to self-regulate your anxiety without professional help can add even more pressure to your life, causing an increase in symptoms.
Many individuals have trouble determining whether their anxiety is normal, chronic, learned or genetic. Anxiety treatment can help you better understand your anxiety, its triggers and how to feel relief.
