Anxiety, fueled by stress hormones, is one of the most difficult emotions to endure. Certainly, it affects the whole body. Learning how to calm the body take practice and encouragement. It means changing thinking patterns, physiological states, and challenging yourself to face situations that you would actually prefer to avoid if you could. I aim to be a coach and a support through this process.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists.

In anxiety and stress treatment, the first goal is to reduce your discomfort. Anxiety and Stress cause real physiological symptoms; a day of anxiety can result in feeling emotionally and physically exhausted. By addressing the events that trigger you, negative thoughts and reactive behaviors that are intertwined anxiety and stress, you can expect a quick reduction of symptoms while making pathways to new positive behaviors and reactions. Longer term, you'll learn to be aware of your triggers and stop anxiety before it starts; you'll work to achieve inner peace and reduce your stress with new self-care actions.

Like some caffeine, some anxiety can motivate people to meet deadlines or complete tasks. Also, as stress seems to be an integral part of our lives, people often say some stress is vital to keep us stimulated or successful. But what if the anxiety and stress you feel seems to be hurting not helping you? Maybe you can't fall asleep or you bite your nails? Perhaps you often interrupt others or get overwhelmed when starting a project? Certainly, medication is a possibility. However, talking with a psychologist is a necessity.

Feeling anxious and under stress at times is normal. Anxious feelings are often brought about by daily stress such as driving in heavy traffic or important meetings. While this mild anxiety helps us stay alert and focused in challenging circumstances, anxiety disorders cause severe distress over a period of time and disrupt the lives of individuals. The intensity of the anxiety often makes it difficult to function normally on a daily basis. Anxiety disorders often surface in adolescence or early adulthood though they may begin at any time in ones life. Types of anxiety disorders: - Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a constant feeling that something bad is about to happen.

At times, we all think negatively; however, we are empowered because we can change the way we think in order to feel less anxiety and stress. In order to pursue optimal psychological health, one way to start is to begin to monitor our thinking regularly. The next step is to examine or question our thoughts and ask ourselves things like: Are our thoughts in proportion to what has happened? Is there any evidence that our beliefs are true? Cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective treatment approach for anxiety and stress especially if part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
