Anxiety is on the increase

Stressed Man

We live in a stressful world and stressors seem to multiply on a daily basis. The number of people suffering with anxiety or anxiety related disorders is on the increase. Children are becoming more and more anxious….which if not dealt with they will take into adulthood. It won’t be long until the whole population is ‘living on the edge’.  Indeed it was reported in 2013 that a third of the British population would struggle with anxiety at some point in their life. In the USA the figure is about the same.

So what is anxiety?

Anxiety is a general term for nervousness, fear, worry and apprehension. It is a normal emotion which everyone will experience at some point in their life. It isn’t always negative. For example, it is quite normal to feel anxious when attending an interview, speaking in public for the first time, taking an exam, or going somewhere new. It can serve to keep us on ‘our toes’ – it heightens our senses, keeps us alert.

The problem arises when normal anxiety becomes a ‘disorder’……. unfortunately the distinction between the two is not always clear. Anxiety disorders present themselves as panic attacks, phobias or excessive worrying for example, and all of which can be severely debilitating. Anxiety becomes a serious problem when ordinary everyday life is impaired. This can manifest as not being able to make a decision, go out or carry out normal tasks and can also manifest as physical symptoms such as vomiting or shaking obsessively. It can also result in obsessive behaviour such as constantly washing ones hands.

In a nutshell anxiety can be described as a debilitating condition that can devastate lives. It is fuelled by fear, what is that fear? This is a question often asked and not always answered.

Some people can find a link to what triggered their anxiety in the first place, sometimes it can be traced back to an incident in the past, however the majority of people I come across cannot.

Anxiety disorders may be triggered by many things such as environmental factors, medical factors, genetics, brain chemistry, substance abuse, or a or woman in paina combination of these. Stress is considered a main trigger. By and large anxiety is a response to outside forces, but it is possible that we make ourselves anxious with “negative self-talk” – a habit of always telling ourselves the worst will happen, which if focused upon, invariably will

Generally speaking, anxiety occurs when a reaction is out of proportion with what might be normally expected in a situation.  This then renders the person concerned unable to cope and not being able to live their life precious life to the full.

So what can be done?

The typical route for someone suffering with anxiety is allopathic medicine – drugs of the big pharma kind, these of course come with their own problems.  Usually these problems mask the original problems and serve to mask all the symptoms rather than dealing with the problem itself. They can create a zombie like state which still leaves the person concerned not living their one precious life to the full; the difference being they have less of an awareness of what is going on around them rather than stressing about it.

The main problem I see is that when suffering with anxiety, people do not feel in control, in control of their lives and their senses. They live in a perpetual mode of panic and fear. Pharmaceutical drugs just serve to suppress normal functioning – to ‘flatten’ the anxiety, forcing the body and the mind into a pseudo calm state.

So what is the alternative?

The alternative is to seek professional help of the alternative kind. Unfortunately most people leave this as a last resort and then wonder why they didn’t explore other options before!

As a wellness practitioner and transformational coach I have worked with many people with anxiety issues. I help people take back control, create change and overcome their anxiety.  Or as one client said only this week, “You have helped me get my happiness back!”

The hardest thing you will ever do on your journey of wellness is pick up the phone, or send an email or text to me. It will be however be a giant step and the leading step to your journey of wellness and getting your life or indeed business back.

If you or someone you know has anxiety issues then perhaps it would be a good idea for us to have a conversation to see if you (or they) would be comfortable working with me.

It is important to me that you feel comfortable working with me. Why? Quite simply because one of the key features to getting lasting results is to feel relaxed with the person who is helping, supporting and guiding you on your journey.

Life does not have to be scary, full of fear and panic.

Say goodbye to living your life of stress, in fear and full of anxiety, begin to enjoy life again.
