anxiety is a part of many people lives around the world. The work
environment, relationships and almost every activity done can
potentially lead to feeling nervous. Anxiety can be considered a mental
or physiological state.
The problem has many
components; emotional, cognitive and behavioral. Anyone experiencing
this will feel uneasy or disturbed. This feeling can be caused
either an external situation or the mind.
If you continuously
think that something bad will happen, your body will respond to that
stimulus by providing that awkward feeling. The anxiety will normally
appear when stress levels are very high. Stress tend to activates the
fight or flight response in our bodies. Unlike our ancestors that had
to run from real predators, the stress we feel is the result of too
much work, problems in relationships or family situations.
cannot start beating up people or run for your life every time you feel
nervous anxiety. That would mean getting arrested or people thinking
you are crazy. So the fight or flight response in our society can lead
to many difficult situations most of the time. Anxiety has many
symptoms some of them are: sweating, trembling, chest pain, headache,
shortness of breath and insomnia.
All of these signs or symptoms
can be felt if you start a new job, get on a ride on an amusement park,
perform a dangerous activity or do something that you never done
before. The main and probably most defining sign of anxiety are the
stomach problems. When stress reaches certain levels, several chemical
reactions occur in body. The blood will flow from the stomach toward
the muscles. This is the result of a high demand of oxygen in the
muscles as the flight response activates. As a consequence the
digestion process gets adversely affected.
Nervous anxiety when
affecting the stomach can cause nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach
cramps and sickness. All of these problems can be originated from
stress. Sadly stress can create even more serious conditions that the
ones previously mentioned.
heart attacks, asthma,
skin disorders and stomach ulcers are some of the conditions that can
appear when you are stressed for a prolonged period of time.
Things that you can do to eliminate anxiety from your life:
first step is to create a routine of exercises. The human body releases
certain chemicals that reduce the pain and makes you feel better when
you perform a regime of exercises.
techniques can also help to control high anxiety levels. By inhaling
slowly through the nose and exhaling the same way through the mouth,
your body will absorb more oxygen into the bloodstream and eliminate
the carbon dioxide that can alter emotions in a negative way.
