Lets talk about anxiety

We have all felt anxious at some point in our lives. It is part of human nature to have such feelings whereby you are nervous about something or on behalf of someone. But do you know that there are people who never get to experience a still moment in their life?

This is what is called an anxiety attack or an anxiety disorder. One shocking thing about anxiety is that it can be quite the opposite and different in various people. Take, for example, a lady who never gets stage fright, shes all confident while talking to a large crowd.

We can say the stage is her highlight. But the moment she steps down from the stage, anxiety kicks in when having a one on one talk with someone. Quite an irony right? Anxiety becomes worrisome when the feelings become excessive, therefore interfering with one’s normal life.

But then what causes anxiety? Most problems that adults face begin right from childhood. It may be that every time you did something, you were always bashed for doing it in the wrong way. You, therefore, end up thinking that you are not good enough.

You then carry these feeling with you into childhood. The moment you do something may it be work or any activity that requires excellent results stresses you over excessively to the point you get anxiety attacks because you are afraid you are not fit to perform the job. Other causes are withdrawal from an illicit substance, genetics and medical factors.

There are different types of anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder and illness anxiety disorder. Can anxiety disorder be treated? The answer is yes; it can be treated. One of the treatments is that you can have self-treatments whereby you try to focus on positive thoughts and knowing that you are perfect and enough.

One can also treat it medically by using antidepressants and sedatives. They balance brain chemistry and prevent episodes of anxiety. Other natural remedies are getting enough sleep, avoiding alcohol, eating healthy and working out, meditating and avoiding caffeine.
