Throughout life, we encounter stressful and even dangerous situations. While anxiety is normal and even helpful in certain instances, a prolonged stress response is a sign of an underlying issue. Traumatic life experiences, poor self-esteem and other factors can lead to chronic anxiety, which is marked by anxiety that disrupts your daily life. Know that you don’t have to struggle on your own: therapy is a highly effective tool that can improve your quality of life. To get started with therapy for anxiety, Brookfield residents can turn to our compassionate team at Life Insight.
Anxiety is a physiological response known as “fight or flight.” When we encounter an immediate danger, the body sends stress signals to prepare us to either fight or run away from the threat. The stress response keeps us safe from immediate dangers. In the modern world, however, the threats we face are often less tangible. Many of us feel pressured due to heavy workloads, relationship issues, financial problems and more. As a result, the stress response goes into overdrive when these problems continue. When the stress impacts your daily life, you may develop several key signs of an anxiety disorder:
If your fears seem out of proportion to reality or are founded on exaggerated thinking, they are likely caused by an anxiety disorder. Additionally, you may experience a number of physical symptoms, including:
While anxiety can be difficult to manage, therapy is often effective in reducing stress and helping patients achieve a healthier, more rational mindset regarding their fears. Our therapists at LIfe Insight help you learn to cope with your anxiety rather than suppressing it. At our office, you’ll address your anxiety head-on and develop a better understanding of what triggers your anxiety and how you can manage it.
Many people with anxiety may feel like they simply need to “put up” with the stress. Yet therapy has been proven to be incredibly effective in not only reducing anxiety levels but promoting a better sense of wellbeing. Some of the potential benefits include:
Therapy takes work, but whatever energy you invest into managing your anxiety now will have a positive ripple effect on the rest of your life. It all begins with our knowledgeable therapists.
Living with chronic stress isn’t easy, but through comprehensive therapy for anxiety, Brookfield patients can move forward to a more fulfilling life. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
