Anxiety is a normal, biological response to stressful stimuli in our environment. All of us deal with anxiety on some level, and it is natural to have feelings of worry, concerns about the future or stress when in difficult situations. However, when the worry and/or fear is persistent and pervasive in multiple areas of your life, you may consider seeking some support to help manage your anxiety. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, approximately 18% of all Americans are dealing with some form of Anxiety Disorder. This can include post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and specific phobias. Anxiety disorders can be debilitating and interfere with your ability to function at work, at home, and in relationships.
Additionally, as a result of the mind-body connection, anxiety can affect your physical health; in fact, many physical ailments can be linked back to anxiety, including high blood pressure, heart irregularities, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, headaches and/or migraines, muscle tension or stiffness, pain, and respiratory issues. Sometimes, attending to the emotional complications of anxiety can help alleviate the somatic symptoms.
