Anxiety is a normal health feeling, but it can develop into a mental condition if you experience excessive amounts of anxiety on a regular basis.
When anxiety takes over our life, we suffer. It impairs our capacity to reason properly and estimate danger realistically, instead making us nervous or fearful. It makes our body feel unsettled, which might impair our mood. Relationships may suffer as a result because it causes us to be irritable or pessimistic.
Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder fueled by feelings of worry and fear that are enough to completely ruin one’s daily schedule.
Hear in this blog, I take you through some common signs that your anxiety is becoming an issue for you and you should probably seek medical help.
1. Worrying About Unlikely Events After Getting Reassurance: Functional and logical anxiety may be changed with the right information gathering and often takes into consideration an actual impression of risk. Uncontrollable worry, nevertheless, typically feels resistant to solace. At this point, anxiety is no longer useful: It is making things worse, much as when someone thinks they have a disease even if tests have repeatedly ruled it out or when someone becomes so certain that their spouse will leave them that they really start to annoy them.
2. Lack of Concentration and Absent Mindedness: Your capacity to concentrate may fluctuate for a variety of reasons, such as ADD/ADHD, depression, or inadequate sleep. But anxiety can very certainly also cause this. In these situations, a person’s thoughts move so quickly that it is difficult for them to “land” anywhere, and when they attempt to concentrate on just one thing, the mental clutter of their worries gets in the way, forcing them to attend to it and making it challenging for them to concentrate on what they were supposed to.
3. Sleeping Challenged: For some people struggling with anxiety, the link with sleep problems is obvious: They lay in bed actively worrying about things, unable to fall asleep. For other people, the differences are more subtle, like waking up too early and being unable to fall back asleep, having an increased incidence of disturbing nightmares, or having more restless sleep in general. Unfortunately, this can often become a vicious cycle, not just because when we become overtired it is more challenging to actually get restful sleep, but also because our moods turn more negative and hypervigilant to — increasing our anxiety — when we haven’t had enough shut-eye
