Are you totally stressed out right now? And of course I don’t just mean are you really busy and do you have loads to get done (although this article will help with that too); what I mean is whether all that stress and all those stress symptoms are starting to have a negative impact on your life?
Stress symptoms can cause you to lose sleep, feel irritable and withdrawn and start to doubt yourself. You may find that all of this worry and anxiety churns around your head and it can lead to headaches, a lose of appetite and trouble concentrating. And of course, the worse you feel, the less you are able to deal with the pressures and the more stressed out you get.
So if you need help to break free from that cycle of stress and to increase your feelings of strength, focus and capability then read on.
Struggling with anxiety?
Have you been struggling with anxiety? Recent research suggests that anxiety levels remain high as we all cope to deal with the modern pace, pressures and demands of life.
Research also suggests that, whilst anxiety can strike anyone, women are twice as likely to have anxiety as men.
In light of this, I recently appeared in the Daily Mail Online giving my top five tips on how you can break free from anxiety. Check them out in the article below.
Help for anxiety:
Having known what it’s like to struggle with anxiety in the past, I’m always delighted to be able to give others help for anxiety so that they too can get on with their lives.
Anxiety can leave you drained, unable to focus or do everyday things you used to do with ease. It can lead to time off work, avoiding people and situations and can have drastic impacts on friendships and relationships. You may struggle in silence with all those thoughts and feelings, too worried to seek help or speak to loved ones in case they get fed up of you.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with someone who came to me for help for anxiety and you can listen to what she said after our sessions below.
According to a recent review paper by the University of Cambridge, it is estimated that four in one hundred people struggle with anxiety, and that women and young people are the most likely to have anxiety disorders.
In fact, the review found that women are more than twice as likely as men to experience anxiety disorders.
In the face of such a vast prevalence of anxiety, it’s no wonder that this is often referred to as the ‘age of anxiety’, and it seems that existing methods of treatment such as anti-depressants and CBT are having little effect of the persistent high incidence of anxiety disorders.
In the short video below I’ll give you three of the best methods for sorting anxiety that you can take control of implementing from today.
