Does your anxiety skyrocket? Do you lack the ability to put words to what you are feeling and can’t answer simple questions?
Getting the right words out to describe an intangible feeling that is so difficult? Are you afraid of doing things in your life, in your relationships, at school or even work? The fear may be robbing you of your experiences and limiting your potential. Fear is something that stops us all, but it doesn’t have to.
Symptoms of anxiety
- Feeling on edge
- Increased heart rate
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feels like the mind just goes blank
These psychological symptoms can also lead to physical manifestation of symptoms like digestive problems from eating more or less, muscle aches or soreness from caring tension in the muscles, and finally difficulty sleeping is a common symptom and could have a serious impact on your well-being, which can lead to chronic fatigue.
How does anxiety impact your daily living?
Say you have a huge presentation in front of all your colleagues, you’re nervous and got quite a bit of stress leading up to your presentation. That stress is completely normal and really probably useful in certain situations, such as being alert and careful. After your presentation, did you feel the stress fade away?
Well for 3% of the population the stress doesn’t go away and maybe that stress isn’t even brought on by a specific event, it’s always just sort of there. Either way, at this point, it is considered to be anxiety. That anxiety may get worse over time and cause things like chest pain or nightmares. Sometimes the anxiety is so severe it can cause someone to be anxious about leaving the house or doing your normal every day things, like going to work or school. If you are experiencing having excessive, persistent, and unreasonable anxiety about every day things such as money, family, work, and relationships and feel out of control like you can’t stop it, please reach out and schedule an appointment.
I use the following approaches to address Anxiety concerns: Mindfulness and CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the most researched therapy to address anxiety and mainly focuses on what an individual thinks, how these thoughts affect the individual emotionally and how these thoughts affect the individual’s behavior.
