How to manage and treat anxiety
Anxiety can be described by a group of disorders that includes nervousness, fear, or worry. While anxiety can be normal in stressful situations such as public speaking, it can turn into anxiety disorders which go beyond the normal feelings of being anxious or nervous. Common well-defined anxiety disorders include Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder.
Anxiety not only affects your mental health, but also has an impact on your physical health. Symptoms of anxiety can include restlessness, irritability, uncontrollable feelings of worry, sleeping difficulties, rapid heart rate, panic attacks, nausea and cause cardiovascular, immune and respiratory changes. Some symptoms are more persistent and fall into specific categories.
Anxiety treatment can include exercise, a healthy diet, and relaxation techniques. However, some anxiety disorders require more specific treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or CBT combined with medications. Given the impact that anxiety can have on your mind and body, it’s important to consult a professional who can work with you to provide the best treatment.
