Anxiety Doesn’t Have To Be in Charge
Do you ever feel like you have a list of things you want to do, but never get done?
Maybe you finally find the motivation to get started only to worry yourself out of it by thinking about all the things that could go wrong.
In the end, these things keep piling up and you wind up feeling even worse about yourself. If this sounds familiar, anxiety treatment could help.
Anxiety keeps me awake at night; it keeps me as a prisoner in my home. Anxiety makes me feel like a failure; it has taken away my self-worth. Anxiety makes me feel uncomfortable and nervous. Anxiety has taken away friends, family, opportunities, my life.” -Anxiety Warrior
You Can Take Your Life Back
As a person struggling with anxiety, at some point in your life, someone has probably told you to just “get over it”.
Unfortunately, the problem is not that simple to solve –- if it were, you likely would have overcome your anxiety long ago.
Because your brain has become hardwired over time to think negatively and has anxious thoughts, it needs to be gradually re-trained to think in a new way.
Anxiety treatment can help.
Changing the way you think requires practice and repetition. Together, we will work on addressing those negative thoughts and changing the way you respond to them. As this becomes easier, you would work your way up to thoughts that are more realistic. Only then does it become automatic and habitual.
As we work together over time, your memory processes will be affected and the neural pathways in your brain will be altered.
You will begin to think, act and feel differently, but it will take persistence, practice, and patience for progress to be made. At first, this is a conscious process but as it is practiced and repeated it becomes automatic.
You’re Not Alone
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.
Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive anxiety treatment. https://adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/facts-statistics
We live in a society of ever-increasing pace and stress. Overworking, irregular diet and self-care, and lack of sleep are all commonplace and sometimes it feels like there’s no end in sight. These stressors can cause excessive worry and distress after awhile.
If you struggle with anxiety, you understand how the overthinking situations can lead to extreme stress, panic, and often, inaction. This can leave you feeling depressed and wondering if you’ll ever be able to change the cycle.
If you’ve come to believe that this is the norm and it can’t be changed, rest assured that it can–and does.
