“Today I will not stress over the things I can't control”
When you have anxiety it can feel hopeless, like you may never have peace-of-mind-again. This is far from the case, please be reassured that there are many ways to help you overcome anxiety. At T'S Wellness I work with a variety of techniques including solution focused hypnotherapy, enabling you to move forward feeling empowered, optimistic and lighter again.
My Approach to Anxiety Management
With hypnotherapy, we delve into the subconscious mind to address and reframe the root causes of anxiety. Together we work to uncover and challenge negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs, and deep-seated fears that contribute to anxiety. Through this powerful process, you can visualize a positive future, regain confidence, and gain control over your anxiety.
Understanding Anxiety A Natural Response with Limitations
Anxiety is a natural response that we all experience at times, especially before significant events or when faced with something new. It can serve as a protective mechanism, alerting us to potential dangers and prompting us to take necessary precautions. However, when anxiety becomes more generalized and overwhelming, it can limit our ability to cope with everyday life. Understanding the distinction between helpful and excessive anxiety is crucial in recognizing when support is needed to regain balance.
Anxiety Symptoms How Anxiety Feels Physically and Emotionally
Anxiety manifests differently in individuals, both physically and emotionally. Common physical symptoms of anxiety include increased heart rate, palpitations, butterflies in the stomach, chest tightness, sleep disturbances, rapid breathing, fatigue, tense muscles, trembling, sweating, blushing, difficulty focusing, feeling frozen or panicked, restlessness, and a constant sense of being on edge. Emotionally, anxiety may lead to negative thinking patterns, irritability, anger outbursts, controlling behaviour, and forgetfulness. Recognizing these symptoms is crucial in addressing and managing anxiety effectively.
Recognizing Anxiety: Subtle Signs and Indicators
Anxiety can be challenging to identify from an external perspective, as it affects individuals in various ways. In addition to the more apparent physical and emotional symptoms, there are subtler signs that someone may be experiencing anxiety. These signs include negative thinking and self-talk, stomach aches, migraines, nail biting, poor sleep, unhealthy coping mechanisms like comfort eating or excessive checking, irrational fears or phobias, perfectionism, irritability, and forgetfulness. By recognizing these signs in ourselves or others, we can extend support and seek appropriate help.
The Rational Mind and the Primitive Brain: Understanding the Anxiety Response
Anxiety arises from the interplay between our rational, intellectual mind and our primitive brain, which acts as a safety officer. While our rational mind may recognize the irrationality and disproportionality of anxiety, the primitive brain is wired to detect and respond to potential threats quickly. However, this primitive part of our brain hasn't evolved as rapidly as our modern world, leading to exaggerated anxiety responses. Understanding this interplay helps us gain insight into why anxiety occurs and how to address it effectively.
The Role of Negative Thinking: Generating and Escalating Anxiety
Negative thinking plays a significant role in generating and escalating anxiety. Every negative thought we have can be converted into anxiety. Worrying about the future, overthinking, and reliving past negative events can all contribute to anxiety. Our minds often struggle to differentiate between imagination and reality, causing us to experience anxiety as if the feared outcomes have already occurred. By understanding the impact of negative thinking on anxiety, we can learn strategies to shift our thought patterns and reduce its influence.
Managing Anxiety Emptying the Stress Bucket and Promoting Positive Focus
Managing anxiety involves emptying the stress bucket and promoting a positive focus. Our stress bucket is filled with negative thoughts, worries, and stressors that contribute to anxiety. Techniques such as hypnotherapy and focusing on the positives in life can help empty the stress bucket and prevent it from overflowing. By cultivating a positive mindset and learning to recognize early signs of anxiety, we can regain control and prevent anxiety from overwhelming us.
When Anxiety Becomes a Problem Impact on Daily Life and Well-being
Anxiety becomes a problem when it starts to significantly impact our daily life and overall well-being. Whether it is a long-term anxiety disorder or persistent everyday worries, living with constant anxiety can be distressing and debilitating.
