Everyone feels anxious and stressed at some point in their lives. Anxiety can be a normal response to a stressful situation, but what happens when it gets severe and negatively interferes with your life? Anxiety can present in different ways and has multiple causes, but a common thread is a feeling of discomfort. Anxiety affects your quality of life. Perhaps you find yourself constantly worried and are having trouble sleeping, or maybe you are experiencing uncomfortable physical symptoms of anxiety, such as a fast heart rate, muscle tension, fatigue, and restlessness. You might be having difficulty with a present situation, or a traumatic event from the past. There may be certain triggers that cause you to feel panicky and nervous.
At times, you realize your reaction is disproportionate to your fears, but you have difficulty controlling it. Maybe others are telling you to “calm down” and “get over it,” but if it were that easy, you would have already done that. You feel at a place where your usual ways of coping with stress are just not working, and sometimes feel like they are making the problem worse.
Regardless of what type of anxiety you are experiencing, it can feel miserable. The good news is that anxiety is a very treatable condition. Our brains are designed to react to stressful situations, but also to be rewired to learn how to cope with stressors and process stressful information more effectively. Relief from anxiety is a very real outcome.
