Anxiety is an uncomfortable inner feeling of fear or imminent disaster. Most of us experience some temporary degree of anxiety in our lives, sometimes with just cause and at other times without. It can be a common normal human reaction to stress, and being anxious over appropriate things may help to make us more responsible, caring people. Some people, however, are constantly anxious to the extent that it is abnormal and interferes with their lives. Severe cases of anxiety can lead to panic attacks or hyperventilation.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ANXIETY? 焦虑的症状是什么？
The symptoms can vary enormously from feeling tense and tired to panic attacks. Symptoms include:
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF ANXIETY?
Various physical illnesses- such as high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, asthma and perhaps cancer- can be related to persistent stress and anxiety. It may aggravate a drug problem such as smoking, and drinking excessively. It can cause a breakdown in relationships and work performance. It can lead to the serious disorder of depression. Because an overactive thyroid can mimic an anxiety state, it is important not to overlook it.
Fear is a normal, adaptive psychological response to danger. In prehistoric times, triggering our fight-or-flight response, which would lead to an appropriate reaction – RUN.
However, when the barometer is set too low, things that do not actually pose a threat are perceived as dangerous and cause us to worry or avoid. When this excessive, difficult to control worry causes functional impairment, we get an anxiety disorder.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR ANXIETY?
It is best to avoid drugs if possible and to look at factors in your lifestyle that cause you stress and anxiety and modify or remove them if possible. Be on the lookout for solutions. Examples are changing jobs and keeping away from people or situations that upset you. Sometimes confronting people and talking things over will help.
Be less of a perfectionist: do not be a slave to the clock; do not bottle up; stop feeling guilty; approve of yourself and others; express yourself and your anger. Resolve all personal conflicts. Make friends and be happy. Keep a positive outlook on life, and be moderate and less intense in your activities.
Seek a balance of activities, such as recreation, meditation, reading, exercise and family/social activities.
Learn to relax your mind and body: seek out special relaxation programs such as yoga and meditation. Make a commitment to yourself to spend some time everyday practising relaxation. About 20 minutes twice a day is ideal, but you might want to start with only 10 minutes.
