Anxiety

 

I thought I would write my latest blog about anxiety as it's something that I've had a lot of experience with, from suffering from it myself in the past, to helping people to understand it, learn to have control over it and remove the negativity of anxiety from their life's

Anxiety causes people to feel unnecessary unease which can and does make some peoples lives a living hell and there can be many contributory factors that can be in and of themselves the cause of anxiety problems and these can range from low self esteem and low opinion of your status of how you fit into this world and how you may think other people think of you or about you which can move on to panic attacks, depression and even withdrawal from society.

Also poor diet can cause anxiety in some people as food can also play a part in anxiety, the food we eat and drink (diet) and general fitness of our body's.

Even healthy people who don't have low self esteem can suffer from anxiety as it is a fight or flight response and that is there for a reason.

So let's look at some of the causes/effects on the body and mind:-

Anxiety can affect people in many ways

indiscriminately of their age, sex or background,

sometimes from fear sometimes from low self esteem among many other things

When we feel nervous about seeing and meeting someone or going into a situation whether that be for a date or a job interview we can feel anxiety and this can also lead to many more issues

like depression, illness, shyness and even more low self esteem and feelings of worthlessness

As I mentioned earlier, also diet can play a big part in anxiety, anytime we eat foods high in sugar or refined carbohydrates our bodies produce adrenaline in an attempt to regulate our blood sugar levels. This is because these foods lower our blood sugar levels and the body produces adrenaline to compensate for the fluctuation. Adrenaline, which is the primary factor in the fight-or-flight response, is what causes you to become anxious and nervous. This is why people who eat a diet high in sugars and refined carbohydrates often seem nervous and highly strung. This is a psychological disorder that can be manifested from a poor diet.

So what can be done to assist people to change this .....first of all eat a healthy diet and from my own perspective I believe that people have all the answers within themselves to get over anxiety, and with some hypnosis NLP and life coaching.

They will have control over their life in four sessions or less and maybe gain so much more in the process.

I would like to ask you this question what would be the reason (other than not realising there are ways to get over anxiety) would you spend years suffering from this when you don't have to? as I know from my own experience I spent many years living with anxiety and watching my life pass me
