Living a Full Life Free from Anxiety
It’s normal to feel scared, nervous, or worried about events such as a big performance or a breakup. This psychological distress is called anxiety, an agitated state resulting from concern for something about to happen. Everyone goes through anxiety periodically as a fight-or-flight response in preparation for uncertainty or danger.
Anxiety can manifest in a variety of body signals, including butterflies in the stomach, diarrhea, excessive sweating, or pounding heart. A person with anxiety may also experience difficulty sleeping and concentrating, or harbor irrational thoughts. Simply put, anxiety is fear; it is hardwired into the human brain as a way of telling the body to get ready.
When Anxiety Becomes Overwhelming
Anxiety is sometimes a helpful and adaptive response for boosting performance, focusing attention, and eliminating distractions. This type of helpful anxiety tends to be short-term, and of mild to moderate intensity. It becomes problematic, however, when common everyday events cause long-term severe and persistent panic. If your fears or worries are unfocused and do not seem associated with a threatening stressor, you may have an anxiety disorder. The support of a qualified counselor is often beneficial to prevent anxiety from interfering with daily functioning.
Exposing the “Hidden Disorder”
Often, people are ashamed to openly admit they have an anxiety disorder. It is a condition that feeds on itself in isolation. For this reason, it is sometimes called the “hidden disorder.” Many people with anxiety disorders do not tell anyone or seek help until the symptoms become obtrusive and uncomfortable.
There’s no need to live with anxiety and be ashamed about it. Anxiety is a highly treatable condition that responds well, and often quickly, to therapy. Therapy is a good place to start in controlling your worrisome thoughts and conquering your fears.
The Right Time to Seek Help
Anxiety is one of the top reasons why people seek therapy. It can become an overwhelming monster that robs you of your peace of mind and deters you from living a full life. It can interfere with relationships and affect your performance at work or school if you do not seek effective therapy as early as possible.
