You may be wondering, “Is Anxiety Therapy the right option for me?” Do you ever have racing thoughts you just can’t stop? Maybe you are worried about something that has not happened yet or thinking constantly about the “what if” scenarios in life and your future. You just can’t seem to relax. You may be wondering, “is this anxiety?” All you know is that this feeling is overwhelming, uncomfortable, and hard to shake.
Do social situations force you to bite your nails? Are you finding yourself avoiding your peers, family, events, and opportunities, but you just can’t seem to stop picturing the worst? Do you fear being judged by others? These fears can prevent us from experiencing the unique and pleasurable opportunities life has to offer.
Does daily stress feel like it controls your life? With all the day to day pressures life puts on us and the high demand from society, our friends, our families, and our jobs, it is easy to put high expectations on yourself that we may not be able to live up to.
Maybe you are having difficulty sleeping? Can’t fall asleep? Can’t stay asleep? Not receiving enough sleep can cause an intense and negative impact on your daily life and stressors. Do you feel run-down? Have you lost your desire to focus on what was once important to you? Without the proper energy and rest, your ability to manage your emotions decreases greatly.
Maybe your anxiety manifests itself physically. Do you have tightness in your chest or stomach? Does it feel impossible to take a deep breath? Intense stressors can take a toll on our mind AND body. You may simply feel like you are losing control and just don’t feel like yourself anymore.
If you identified with any of these scenarios, Anxiety Therapy may be a good option for you!
What Is Anxiety?
With the word “anxiety” being as rampant as it is, it’s exact definition leaves many people scratching their heads. What exactly is anxiety? Many people have tried to define it in many different ways. However, in all those cases, some symptoms appear to be consistent. Mental health experts have compiled similarities, and with their research, they have come up with a more straightforward definition of anxiety to better help people understand.
Anxiety has been explained as a stress-related response which is generated as a result of any stressful situation. This stress response is also marked by internal biological triggers the stimulus of which may or may not be recognized. In other words, whenever your body enters into a state of “fight or flight,” experiencing the symptoms that follow this state, such as extreme restlessness, racing thoughts, feelings of dread, and even nerves can be categorized as anxiety.
It’s More Common Than You Think!
Nearly 40 million adults in America alone are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder every single year. Ranging from stress to social anxiety to panic attacks and chronic anxiety, there are ways to manage these burdens. When it comes to stress, learning to cope, prioritizing, and externalizing our day to day responsibilities can lead to a reduction of the intensity of this emotion. When it comes to anxiety, the chronic stage has the potential to interfere with your daily life activities and anxiety attacks can start interfering with the smoothness of your life. At this stage, proper treatment can give you the skills necessary for coping and relief.
However, people tend to associate anxiety as only bad. It can actually be healthy! Stress and anxiety in small doses can help us be productive, set goals, accomplish these goals, practice responsibility, improve decision making, and strive to be our best selves. The problem arises when this anxiety begins to turn into something that controls you, rather than encouraging you. Luckily, there are ways to keep anxiety at controllable, healthy levels.
