I’m worried about being worried!

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, like a worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone feels worried from time to time and it usually passes once the situation is over.

It can make our heart race, we might feel sweaty, shaky or short of breath. Anxiety can also cause changes in our behavior, such as becoming overly careful or avoiding things that trigger anxiety. When anxiety becomes a problem, our worries can be out of proportion with relatively harmless situations. It can feel more intense or overwhelming, and interfere with our everyday lives and relationships.

Why am I sorry worried?

Anxiety affects everyone differently and can be brought on by different situations or experiences. It is our body’s natural reaction to perceived danger, focusing our attention and giving us a rush of adrenaline to react, sometimes called the “fight or flight” response.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what is making you anxious, which can be upsetting or stressful in itself. That’s why learning to recognise what is making you anxious can help so you can deal with the uncertainty better.

Some people naturally react more than others, and there are times when everyone may go through stressful situations and feel anxious because of uncertainty or perceived threat.

There are lots of things that can influence our mental health, such as our upbringing, childhood environment, things that happen to us and even our temperament. Learn more about what affects our mental health and what support is available for life’s challenges.

What are the signs of anxiety?

What can I do to be less worried?

Can you use hypnotherapy for worry?

Yes – hypnotherapy is very helpful in allowing you to see more clearly the causes of any anxious behavior, and help you to make changes in how you react to any perceived threat.

We use hypnotic techniques to help you to rationalize what is happening to you when you start to get anxious, and do something about reversing the trend before it becomes a full-blown life challenging event.

What did I learn here?

That there are many challenges in life, however, there are things you can do to reduce your levels of worry.

Sometimes people feel that their worries are simple, or silly, or not worth bothering anyone with, however, if it’s something that’s taking over your life, it really can be stopped.
