Do you often feel overwhelmed by anxiety?
Are your anxious thoughts stopping you do things that you would really like to do?
Is something that you have no control over making your life more difficult?
We all experience anxiety in different ways, some people have a general feeling of unease, a feeling that something terrible may happen. Others may have a nagging worry that, what if I did this, what might happen. That anxious mind chatter that you can expereince all the time, can stop you living your life to the full.
Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life – for example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam or going to a party when you don’t know many people or maybe you are facing a job interview.
During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal and can even help you to be a your best. If you can channel the anxiety to be a positive effect, because anxiety and anticipation can be very similar feelings, it’s just how we chose to interpret them that makes the difference
However, sometimes the anxiety can take over, with people finding it hard to control their worries. The anxiety can take over and stop them doing what they want to do. Sometimes, going to the shops can seem too much to bear, as it can feel that everyone is looking at you, or even threatening you in some way.
The symptoms of anxiety are varied but people can experience feeling sweaty, hyperventilating and feeling sick or just plain scared. Many people come to see me because they know that they are experiencing these symptoms, but they really don’t know why or how to stop it. But what they do know is that it can be really unpleasant and debilitiating. And it’s stopping them doing the things that other people can do.
The problem with anxiety is that it can become a vicious circle. The more you experience the anxiety the more you worry about the next time it’s going to appear. And sometimes there seems to be no obivous reason for the anxiety. And then the circle starts again because you worry about the next anxiety attack. All this leads to you missing out because you worry about what might be, instead of grasping the opportunity and giving it a go.
