Anxiety manifests in many ways. Symptoms can include excessive worrying, a nagging sense of fear, restlessness, overly emotional responses, negative thinking, catastrophizing, and defensiveness. Anxiety is usually present in cases of addiction, perfectionism, being overly controlling, and behavioral issues.
Anxiety sufferers often feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and stressed out. Some can’t concentrate due to their intense internal focus. Others obsess about specific things. Anxiety is easily detected if someone appears outwardly nervous; however, many sufferers appear calm on the outside, but their brain never stops. They can’t stop thinking, and the constant internal chatter can get so bad that it interrupts their sleep and steals their quality of life. They don’t live in the present, because they constantly worry about the future or live in the past.
Helping people learn to calm themselves is by far the most effective solution for anxiety, and gives sufferers hope as they take control of their lives.
