Anxiety-pic-xxl

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life – for example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam, or having a medical test or job interview. During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal. However, some people find it hard to control their worries. Their feelings of anxiety are more constant and can often affect their daily lives. Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions including:

:panic disorder phobias – such as agoraphobia or claustrophobia

post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD

social anxiety disorder (social phobia)

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD).GAD is a long-term condition that causes you to feel anxious about a wide range of situations and issues, rather than one specific event. People with GAD feel anxious most days and often struggle to remember the last time they felt relaxed. As soon as one anxious thought is resolved, another may appear about a different issue. GAD can cause both psychological (mental) and physical symptoms. These vary from person to person, but can include:

feeling restless or worried

having trouble concentrating or sleeping

dizziness or heart palpitations

The exact cause of GAD isn't fully understood, although it's likely that a combination of several factors plays a role. Research has suggested that these may include:

overactivity in areas of the brain involved in emotions and behaviour

an imbalance of the brain chemicals serotonin and noradrenaline, which are involved in the control and regulation of mood

genes you inherit from your parents – you're estimated to be five times more likely to develop GAD if you have a close relative with the condition

having a history of stressful or traumatic experiences, such as domestic violence, child abuse or bullying

having a painful long-term health condition, such as arthritis

having a history of drug or alcohol misuse

However, many people develop GAD for no apparent reason.

Who is affected?

GAD is a common condition, estimated to affect up to 5% of the UK population. Slightly more women are affected than men, and the condition is more common in people from the ages of 35 to 59.GAD can have a significant effect on your daily life, but several different treatments are available that can ease your symptoms. These include:

psychological therapy

medication – such as a type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) There are also many things you can do yourself to help reduce your anxiety, such as:

going on a self-help course

exercising regularly

stopping smoking

cutting down on the amount of alcohol and caffeine you drink

With professional help and coaching/NLP  many people are able to control their anxiety levels.
