How do you know if you are experiencing anxiety? Do you experience the following?

  • Dizziness?
  • Waking up in the night with racing thoughts?
  • Feel heaviness in your chest?
  • Have irrational fears?
  • Have frequent headaches or migraines?
  • Have stomach ache or nausea?
  • Brain fog or feeling spaced out?
  • Feel numbness in your skin?

People do not always recognize symptoms of anxiety in their own thoughts, behaviour and physical well-being. Many people are unaware that anxiety can cause symptoms that affect the body, chest, mouth/stomach, head, hearing, mind, sleep, skin, sight, touch, emotions, mood and feelings.

Anxiety comes with everyday life. Whether it has to do with meeting a deadline, work stressors, family challenges and more. It can come in many forms. Sometimes knowing and understanding your anxiety is the hardest part. It can affect every aspect of a person’s life: behavioural, psychological and physiological.

Complications with untreated anxiety:

If you suffer from anxious feelings and leave it untreated you are putting yourself at a greater risk for substance abuse, depression and physical illnesses. Anxious feelings can be overwhelming and there are strategies taught during counselling that can bring relief.  The longer you ignore your feelings, the more your anxious thoughts increase. Trying to ignore it may actually induce more feelings of panic, make it harder to cope in your job, school or social life. Long term anxiety can cause relationship difficulties, depression, parenting and less life enjoyment.
