What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a natural condition that affects many individuals in varying degrees, and it can range from mild uneasiness to extreme feelings of terror. It is important to distinguish anxiety from fear, as anxiety is more of an ongoing state of apprehension and dread on a psychological, cognitive, and physical level.
Treatment for anxiety may involve psychotherapy for moderate to severe symptoms. Stress management techniques such as relaxation training are also methods used in managing anxiety symptoms. With assistance from lifestyle adjustments or professional treatment such as psychotherapy, individuals who suffer from anxiety can learn to navigate their emotions without negative consequences.
What are the symptoms of anxiety?
Experiencing anxiety can come with an array of symptoms that can vary in severity from person to person. Common physical symptoms include excessive sweating, trembling or twitching, increased heart rate and headache. Emotions may include fear, worry, panic attack, feeling overwhelmed, constantly worrying about the future or being worked up over minor issues. Cognitively people can experience obsessive thoughts and difficulty concentrating and focusing. Behaviourally people with anxiety may have a hard time slowing down and relaxing even during leisure activities like watching movies or going for walks due to the perceived pressure to constantly be productive. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms CARESPACE can provide access the most appropriate treatment for you.
What are anxiety attacks?
An anxiety attack can be an completely overwhelming experience. Symptoms may include rapid heart rate, difficulty breathing, sweating, tremor, and sensations of fear or dread. While some of these symptoms can also arise from physical causes such as an underlying medical condition, an anxiety attack is brought on by psychological stimuli rather than a physical one. Learning various techniques to cope with anxious feelings such as relaxation techniques, distraction methods, and sleep hygiene can help lessen the severity of anxiety attacks and allow the individual to become more resilient in the face of distressful emotions.
What is the best treatment for anxiety?
Anxiety is a highly treatable condition. However, finding the right treatment for an individual person can depend on various factors such as the person’s age, type of anxiety disorder, and personal preference. Some common treatments for anxiety include therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes.
