Anxiety is something that we all experience at one time or another and it is probably the case that most of us are able to relate to feeling tense and afraid. These sorts of feelings can occur at the very thought of having to undertake something you dread doing, such as having to take an exam or sit a driving test. One of the ways that anxiety and panic attacks can be successfully treated is by the linden method.
Anxiety is able to cause problems with you not being able to get any sleep and also being unable to relax. In fact the more you try to get to sleep the more the anxious thoughts and worries enter into your head and stop you from sleeping. Whilst some anxious feelings are considered to be normal and could potentially be considered to be helpful; in certain situations for instance where there is a need for you react quickly for instance.
You may hear people say ‘they live on their nerves’ or ‘they are always on the go’. Certainly if you watch people and observe their behavior you are able to see the different ways in which a person copes with everyday life. Although sometimes when you find it difficult to relax and feel that you must always be busy this can be detrimental to your health. People often experience anxiety and fear reactions when they are overworked and feeling stressed. When this happens your body will struggle to manage to cope with everyday life and see it as a difficulty.
When the body has feelings of anxiety that originate from the brain it lets the body know to prepare by releasing extra adrenalin to deal with the potential problem known as the flight or fright response. This is vital in the right circumstances when it is required such as extra energy needed to fight off an attacker for example but generally every day the release of more adrenalin is not wanted. Therefore if your anxiety stays elevated over a long period of time and it is not controlled then this can lead to you having panic attacks.
Of course a panic attack feels like you are going to die as it is likely to include a fast heart rate, sweating and fast pulse and breathing discomfort. The symptoms of a panic attack can indeed mimic those of a heart attack so it can feel like and be a terrifying experience. With any panic attacks though, they come and go; although the amount of time they last can vary from just a few minutes to over 20 minutes. Whilst there is no scientific way of knowing how long a particular attack will last for, you can be reassured that they will stop eventually on their own. You can help yourself by learning breathing techniques that stop you from over breathing; a common problem that cause you to become dizzy and feel sickly.
For some people having recurring panic attacks can be a common problem and some people can have one after another. Panic attacks are known to occur at random and at any time without warning and sometimes there are no obvious reasons for them happening. There are no known reasons why some people are more anxious than others and why some people have panic attacks and others don’t. There are theories held that think that panic attacks happening can be related to a past event that you found to be distressing and caused you to be extremely anxious. There are other theories that say that you can have a leaning towards being more anxious as being part of your personality. Also everyday habits and lifestyle are said to play a part such as excess intake of alcohol and caffeine.
You may be choosing to live with the feelings of anxiety and possible panic attacks for so long but eventually they can become to be so overwhelming that it begins to take over your life. Where it becomes that way and you have persistent overall feelings of anxiety is when you should seek advice and support. If you leave your anxiety unchecked then it can escalate to more difficult issues towards obsessive behavior rituals and can affect you being able to hold down a job.
