If you do, you may also experience sleepless nights that lead into exhaustion filled days. Are you constantly finding your mind overwhelmed with thoughts racing from one concern to the next? Perhaps you may even find your mind going blank or having difficulty focusing on tasks. Although this seems like it’s become a permanent part of your life, it doesn’t have to remain so.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is our natural reaction to stress but when it causes you difficulty with normal daily life, it is then a problem. Anxiety is our brain’s way of telling us we may be in danger. While this was beneficial hundreds of years ago, it does not always protect us in our modern world. Anxiety can cause us to obsess over imagined situations that may never even occur!
If you struggle with anxiety, you may notice it interferes with your work life, relationships, or school performance. Anxiety impacts how we view the world around us and shifts our focus often on the things we cannot control.
- Feeling restless and nervous
- Heat racing
- Worrying or fearful thoughts you cannot control
- Sleeping difficulties
- Shortness of breath
- Avoiding triggers that cause you fear
- Feeling like danger is always lurking
- Tense muscles
- Difficulty controlling your feelings
