Four things that you need to know about anxiety
“I am feeling stressed out” is a basic instinct that people feel from time to time. A critical meeting, financial instability, tension between you and your significant partner are common triggers to this emotion. However, sometimes this feeling of anxiousness, nervousness and sadness can prolong for a long period of time that may lead to a full-blown disorder that can perhaps result in a disruptive lifestyle and routine. Hence, this blog will discuss seven important things that one should keep in mind when they are dealing with these intense anxious feelings and emotions.
Your body is aware of your anxiousness if not your brain
At times, you may not be aware of the way you feel. Although your conscious mind does not recognize it, your body very well does. This is depicted in some physical symptoms such as muscle tension and irritable bowel movements. Sometimes these muscle tensions can come in the form of clenching fists, jaws and stomachaches.
Anxiety is a cover for anger
Feeling angry is more acceptable that having an anxiety disorder. While a lot of people feel angry, not many people are sympathetic to people who have this medical condition. Anger is often used as a defense mechanism. When one is diagnosed with such a condition, their thoughts are often jumpy, actions are reckless and are constantly seen worrying. It is advisable to best sit by yourself and explore your emotions and analyze the factors, causes and triggers that are leading to such intense emotions.
Feeling restless and awkward around people
Doctors and researchers reveal that people are seen most comfortable when they are at home. However, when you are around other people in any events, social gatherings, your anxiety is set to overdrive. People with anxiety are seen pondering on what could go wrong in a party or social gathering that are weeks ahead. There are also many symptoms associated with social anxiety such as heart palpitations, stomach aches, and a feeling where you believe that everyone is watching or judging you. A simple yet an effective solution to control these thoughts is to try medication and to think positively.
Anxiety can turn into obsessive compulsion disorder (OCD)
Do you perpetually wonder that your answers often remain unanswered? Should I take the job offer, should I leave my partner? These recurring questions of uncertainly and constant worrying can sometimes control your thought process leading obsessiveness. This can turn into a disorder when you turn this feeling into a ritual or incorporate it part of your daily routine. It is best to consult a doctor when you may feel this feeling getting out of hand.
