“It All Comes Down To How Someone Or Something Managed To Get To Your Subconscious Mind.”
Anxiety is a mental condition and most of us associate the disorder with a state of being worried and excessive stress. We think of anxiety as a condition of being unnecessary fearful of varied things in life, wherein anxiety sufferers may always seem to experience a feeling that something dreadful may occur.
Anxiety can be observed in actions as well as thoughts. But we need to understand that anxiety also results in physical anomalies, and one of the main triggers of such physical symptoms is prolonged stress. Below are 3 signs that your body is telling you that it’s time to handle your anxiety:
1. Feelings of being ill
Stress induced by an underlying case of anxiety can trigger feelings of being truly sick.
“Such sensations typically exhibit symptoms which are similar to other kinds of physical illnesses.”
Anxiety sufferers may feel completely nauseated, rumblings in the stomach, and feel excessive pressure in the abdomen and gut. Most experts are of the opinion that varied common sensations of illness, including nausea, are caused due to problems with adrenaline and serotonin hormones.
These tend to function abnormally when under the influence of anxiety and stress. This process may also be a part of evolution and the fight or flight response, wherein during times of increased fear, the gut signals the brain about being afraid via the usage of the sensation of nausea.
Some anxiety sufferers may elicit additional physical symptoms other than nausea. They may suffer from symptoms which occur when going down with flu or a common cold. They may feel as if their tongue is excessively dry, lightheadedness, swelling of the glands, indigestion, extreme abdominal discomfort, and coughing, etc.
2. Lack of sleep
People with anxiety often find it difficult to shut down their brains and go to sleep. A lack of sleep or insomnia is a common problem of the modern era, but if it occurs on a consistent and long term basis, affected people begin fearing such nights of sleeplessness, thereby increasing anxiety.
Experts have stated that anxiety is closely related to maintenance insomnia or onset insomnia. The lack of activity at night as well as the quietness of the night can lead to the occurrence of unnecessary fear and thoughts which can then prevent a person from sleeping. Insomnia can be a really terrible experience, as I know very well.
Most anxiety sufferers tend to feel as if they may have a cardiac arrest whenever they are in the middle of an anxiety attack. They experience lightheadedness, shortness of breath, and very rapid heartbeats. Affected people become extremely aware of their shallow abnormal breaths; they may also feel as though they are not in control of their breathing.
“Breathlessness may occur consistently, it may come and go, or it may keep persisting for an indefinite period of time. This sensation of breathing not being as effortless as it should be, can further aggravate anxiety.”
People who experience any of the above mentioned physical symptoms of anxiety should begin an NLP and or CBT directed method to end the anxiety cycle in the shortest time possible. Reason being, the mind likes to group things around what’s familiar and if anxiety is prevalent in a person’s life, the snowball could begin getting bigger if left unchecked.
