I am passionate about helping people stop experiencing anxiety and start experiencing their life the way they want to.
Anxiety Affects Your Thoughts
Anxiety brings an overwhelming feeling of constant worry and fear along with intrusive racing thoughts that can be debilitating. Anxiety can get so out of control that it can stop you from enjoying your life. It is common for people experiencing anxiety to say that they feel “out of control”, “feel like I am going crazy”, and “I don’t feel like myself”. When you experience anxiety, negative and irrational thoughts can flood your mind and feel overpowering. You might have the same negative thoughts that make you feel anxious, nervous, and uneasy all day long.
Anxiety is the constant worry about what will happen in the future with the expectation that it will result in a negative outcome. A question like “what if” can quickly snow ball into excessive anxiety ridden thoughts and make you feel out of control. Have you ever lied in bed dreading what will happen tomorrow at work or in a social setting? Anxiety can make you want to avoid things you need to do, or to participate in things you used to enjoy.
Anxiety Affects You Physically
Anxiety wreaks havoc not only on your mind but your body as well. Have you ever noticed that you can feel utterly drained of energy? Do you ever feel muscle tightness in your neck, back, or shoulder area? Does your stomach feel like it is doing cartwheels when you are anxious? High levels of anxiety can result in the following physical symptoms: chest pains, dizziness, restlessness, difficulty sleeping, heart palpitations, tremors, muscle tension, diarrhea, nausea, stomach discomfort, and shortness of breath. People who experience anxiety often complain about not feeling physically well.
