Anxiety can wreak havoc on our lives and relationships. The consistent feeling of being overwhelmed, fearful, and worried impedes our ability to reach our goals, connect with others, and live a life in the here and now.
Some Common Anxiety Symptoms include:
- Intrusive thoughts
- Overthinking/Trouble making decisions
- Worrying all the time
- Feeling like something bad is going to happen
- Increase or decrease in appetite
- Stomach pain, nausea, or other physical symptoms
- Loss of interest in pleasurable activities
- Avoiding situations like being in public, new environments, or around groups of people
- Disassociation (like you’re not connected to the environment around you)
These are just some of the debilitating symptoms of anxiety that can make you feel awful and if not treated can lead to depression.
The weird thing about anxiety is that in the proper amounts, it’s a healthy emotion we all have that helps us get stuff done. Without it, we would probably never bother to get out of bed, do a load of laundry, or make it to work on time. But when it starts becoming intrusive in the form of out-of-control thoughts and/ or behaviors, what once served us can ruin our lives.
Anxiety like this tends to creep up on people, and we learn ways to “manage” it as we go along; “management” that typically involves things like drinking, over-exercising, relationship cycling, over or under eating, overworking, and a bunch of other strategies that start as solutions and end up becoming new problems.
