The 1920s and 1930s are considered the ‘Golden Age of Crime’ when authors such as Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers and Anthony Berkeley were household names whose work was eagerly lapped up by avid readers.
Approaching a century later, will this period come to be known as the ‘Golden Age of Anxiety’?
Today, household names are more likely to be one of the dozens of brands of anti-depressants prescribed to try and quell the ever rising time of anxiety and depression. Figures from the Health and Social Care Information Centre put this into stark figures with the number of anti-depressants given to patients in England having doubled in a decade (61 million prescriptions in 2015).
That’s not to suggest that any of these prescriptions were unwarranted, unnecessary or even unhelpful.
What causes anxiety? If you are currently struggling with anxiety then two of the major things running through your mind may be what caused the anxiety and why you are anxious.
And all that uncertainty as to where it came from and why you have anxiety can lead you to feeling even more anxious. Especially because often there is no one thing that you can point to and say ‘that thing caused my anxiety.’
Instead of chasing the answer to what causes anxiety, the key to overcoming it is most often centered around discovering how it keeps itself going and how to change that pattern.
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.
