Being anxious and stressed all the time is no way to live. There are many “quick fix” solutions you might be tempted to choose, such as anti-anxiety medication, but the truth those solutions don’t really “fix” anxiety. With anxiety issues and panic attacks being one of the most common reasons to seek treatment, it’s clearly an epidemic that isn’t finding any real relief. Why is that so?
When you are feeling anxious, people love to tell you:
“just calm down,”
“be in the moment…”
“think happy thoughts.”
Does that ever work? Not for anyone that I know who is suffering from real anxiety. Debilitating, fist clenching anxiety that makes your heart race, your head spin, and question your sanity. You might even have discussed this with your doctor thinking there was something physically wrong. The medial professionals are trained to treat symptoms, but the root causes of anxiety are underlying those symptoms. Without treating those too, the anxiety will return or simply become a state of your life that you think you are destined to have to deal with forever.
Therapy Services for Anxiety Orlando looks at those root causes. Anxiety doesn’t just manifest into physical symptoms, but can show itself as a byproduct of depression, hopelessness, low motivation, inability to concentrate, sadness, etc. Anxiety therapy looks at the symptoms of anxiety as sign that the whole person needs to be treated. Not just the symptoms you are describing. This holistic type of treatment is the only way that anxiety can be eliminated.
There is a great amount of research that is proving that American anxiety sufferers do not have time to do any of the things mentioned above. Relaxing, breathing, calming down, and being in the require planning and practice, both of which people don’t have time for these days. Living a busy lifestyle, dealing with external and internal demands, and trying to attain the happiness quotient creates a pressure for most people. That pressure or stress impacts an anxious man or woman in the same physical ways. Without outlets for stress, the body remains in a constant state of “flight or fight.” The stress hormones activated, such as cortisol and adrenaline, continue to be released despite there not being any real threat of danger. This constant state of arousal causes the body to be in a constant heightened state. That arousal fatigues the adrenal glands and never allows for the balancing hormones which induce relaxation to be activated.
Treating the person as a whole during therapy for anxiety issues requires the help of someone who understands anxiety. There are several techniques that accompany counseling practices, but not all are the same. For example, talk therapy would not necessarily be the right fit for anxiety relief. Therapy for anxiety should incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to be the most effective for symptom relief.
Therapy for Anxiety Orlando has proven to provide anxiety relief for long term change. It isn’t a “quick fix” but with the right professional help, it can happen quickly. Anxiety therapy is the best treatment for anxiety and will produce a long-term solution without any side-effects. You don’t have to just accept that anxiety is normal for you. Even though everyone experiences anxious feelings, it isn’t normal for it to be a part of your everyday life causing depression, hopelessness, or any other negative feelings.
Anxiety is a normal feeling, but not when it leaves you with symptoms that are affecting your daily thoughts or behaviors. Anxiety triggers might be obvious, such as divorce, break-up, financial issues, poor self-esteem, but other anxiety causes could be less identifiable. That is where the help of an anxiety professional comes into play.
