Anxiety is a sign that you have an underlying uneasy feeling or nervousness which is really based in fear of something. We all experience anxiety from one time to another but what could be some of the common causes and what can we do to overcome this feeling. A few of the main reasons we can feel anxious stem from being worried about losing something or someone; afraid of not being able to cope; and fear of disappointment.
The best thing we can do is learn to cultivate the habit of being comfortable with the uncomfortable.
Learning to accept the situation and break it down into bite size pieces that we can bring understanding to and work with little by little. Redirecting our focus onto our strengths and to past experiences where we did succeed or have fantastic outcomes can help reprogram us to think differently about our fears and it helps dissolve those into hope and excitement about our current situation.
Anxiety effects all ages from the small school child that is nervous about going to school for the first time to the mature adult that is getting ready to retire. No matter what age group we fall into or no matter what the circumstance developing stress reduction habits as well as being able to ask yourself some key questions will help you decrease your anxiety and help you focus on your strengths and create experiences that are less scary and overwhelming.
