anxiety

Anxiety can be painful and hard to control.

Anxiety is a sign of awareness, an alarm bell that goes off when something important needs to be addressed in our lives. Often we don’t answer the call and the alarm keeps ringing creating constant distress. Anxiety is not a feeling that can disappear as it is connected to fear which is functional in humans. 

Anxiety is also a positive feeling to experience. It can help us to perform at our best.

However, it is not always easy to find the reasons behind what causes it. 

How do you typically respond when anxiety kicks in? How does it feel? How do you experience it? 

Anxiety creates a lot of stress in the body. Thigh chest, numbness in some part of the body, muscles tension. 

It is indeed very important to start understanding the symptoms you get in the body and to develop more awareness towards them. Learning how to recognise these symptoms and exploring techniques of distractions and relaxation methods can be very helpful. 

According to some psychologists and therapists to literally MOVE with or MOVE away from anxiety is a very effective response.
