Anxiety can ruin so much
Do something to stop anxiety
If you suffer from anxiety then it can and dose affect life, from the simple things like going shopping and visiting friends to avoiding family holidays and missing out on life.
For some it’s anxiety all the time, for others it’s connected to certain things like heights, animals, being in open spaces or crowds. It takes on many forms and all are distressing on their own way.
Anxiety has many symptoms, the ones we hear of the most are the hot or cold sweats, tight chest, feeling sick or excessive butterflies and heart palpitations. But for some it’s a fear or dred that engulfs them, others it can affect their vision and give wobbly legs, all distressing in their own way.
Some of the many symptoms of anxiety, but there will be people reading this that may well have others, some will recognise all and have experienced them, others may just recognise one or two of them.
Therapy can and does help, whether it’s anxiety for a particular event, an exam or speech for example, or if anxiety is something that is taking over, social anxiety. BWRT®️ Is an amazing therapy that I do and it doesn’t involve hypnotherapy, some people are wary about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, that may be due to religion and beliefs or what people have seen on tv or in the media.
I have a blog on BWRT®️ and it gives more info.
People often say that depression is living in the past and anxiety is living in the future, where you need to be is in the here and now.
One thing I find that helps to be in the moment is just breathing, I have a timer on my watch for breathing. It is either 2 or 5 mins and all you do is follow the prompts to breath in and out. I have clients that have used an app called head space, I haven’t used it but if you give it a go and find it helpful please let me know.
It can often take a few goes to find what works for you but please take time out and look after yourself
