What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry, dread or fear. This can be mild or severe and normally occurs in response to a stressor.
Anxiety is experienced by everyone at some point in their life. This is a perfectly natural response to larger, short term, stressors such as having an exam or job interview to prepare for, or perhaps you have decided to move house.
Sometimes anxiety is caused by longer term challenges which can begin to impact on your day to day life. These can include work stresses or long term health worries. It can be difficult to control these feelings and you might not always know what is causing them, which can leave you with a generalised feeling of anxiety without an obvious reason.
Perhaps you have experienced the unpleasant symptoms of anxiety. These can include:
- Elevated pulse rate
- Rapid breathing
- Tension in your body
These symptoms can have a serious impact on your day to day life. You might be aware of the “fight or flight” response, this is a self preservation response which assists you in fighting or running from a stressor.
The “fight or flight” response can be triggered by both tangible stresses and imagined threats. Thinking about a stressor will create the same experience in your body as a physically experienced event as, our brains cannot distinguish between the two.
Symptoms can progress and become steadily worse which can lead to:
- Sleep irregularities
- Mood swings
- Shortness of temper
- Reduced confidence and/or self esteem.
