Symptoms of Anxiety
Everyone faces moments of anxiety at some point in their lives. However, anxiety can become much more than just a feeling of worry or occasional shortness of breath. It can actually cause physical symptoms and mental health issues like social anxiety, depression, and even panic attacks. Knowing the typical symptoms of anxiety is helpful for dealing with it better, so you can cope and find relief.
Anxiety often manifests as physical sensations such as: stomach pain or tightness, tremors/shaking, chest pressure/pain, and sweaty palms.
It can also create difficulty sleeping or concentrating on tasks at hand—both of which could impact performance in school or work-related activities.
Social anxiety might cause people to avoid events because of fear or dread over how others will perceive them in attendance. If anxiety is getting in the way of daily routines or relationships with others, it’s probably time to get help from a professional and create an action plan to manage it better.
Treating Your Anxiety
Anxiety isn’t always something you can manage alone – therapy is often a great way to talk about your anxiety and which topics provoke anxiety in your life. Other tools you could use are relaxation techniques and mindfulness – these have been clinically proven to help reduce anxiety levels. Finally, lifestyle changes may also help, like removing toxic people from your life or taking medication if prescribed through our nurse practitioners. All in all, anxiety doesn’t mean the end of the world; with the right approach and treatments, you can feel better in no time!
Supporting A Family Member With Anxiety
Helping a family member manage anxiety can be difficult and complex, considering each person’s anxiety symptoms may vary or even mirror other issues such as depression.
Common anxiety symptoms include difficulty concentrating, feeling overwhelmed, worrying excessively, insomnia, and irritability.
If your family member experiences anxiety socially, activities like meditating or taking long walks may prove beneficial when coping with anxiety in these situations.
Additionally, it might be helpful to practice mindfulness and focus on enjoying positive moments together.
Asking them what they need or prefer you do to make them feel comfortable can go a long way in helping them combat their anxiety. Ultimately, providing calm reassurance and being supportive yet firm is the best way to show your family member you care about their mental health during anxious times.
Coping with anxiety
Using strategies such as positive self-talk, having a good support system, eating a well-balanced diet, and staying away from drugs and alcohol are healthy ways of coping with anxiety.
Treatment for anxiety
Anxiety can be treated in a number of different ways. Treatment can include therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes that reduce stress. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one type of psychotherapy that can be effective in treating anxiety.
