Anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders affecting Americans and people worldwide today. What’s more, many cases of anxiety go undiagnosed or dismissed. While anxiety may be common, it’s important to recognize both that anxiety can be a severe condition that interferes with one’s day-to-day, and also that anxiety is manageable. At Life Insight, we offer anxiety therapy Hinsdale that is designed to help you take control of your mental health and wellbeing. Call us today to learn more about how we can help.
Anxiety is defined as having constant worry, fear, or stress about common everyday situations. It is more than just being stressed about a particular isolated event—such as the board presentation next week; instead, it is characterized by frequent and persistent worry or fear, as well as repeated episodes of intense anxiety or terror that reaches a peak within minutes, known as an anxiety attack or panic attack. There are different types of anxiety and different diagnosable anxiety disorders, including:
The above list of anxiety disorders is not inclusive. Talk to a mental health professional to learn more.
It’s important to remember that anxiety is different from stress. Anxiety is persistent, which means that the sufferer is frequently experiencing the symptoms of anxiety. Some of these symptoms include:
If you think that you are suffering from anxiety, it’s important that you know that you have options. You do not have to cope with anxiety alone, nor do you merely have to accept the fact that you have anxiety without taking action.
If you think that you have anxiety, one of the first things that you might consider doing is pursuing anxiety therapy. When you work with a therapist, you can get an accurate diagnosis for your anxiety and lay the foundation for taking action. From there, you and your therapist will work together to outline your goals for therapy. In most cases, anxiety therapy seeks to help the patient understand the underlying cause of their anxiety and related triggers and develop coping mechanisms and new thinking patterns around the anxiety. For example, anxiety therapy may challenge a patient to think about the worst-case scenario—What would happen if the bad thing they are hyper-focused on did occur? It can also help to shift thinking patterns and coping strategies, including deep breathing and refocusing attention.
