This has never happened to everyone. Living with anxiety, not anxiety about a stimulus, an experience that scares us, a situation or a person, but getting used to living in this constant state of anxiety.
Anxiety is an emotional state and also a way of thinking, interpreting, valuing, which affects your physical, psychological and emotional well-being. Is this an unresolved condition? Is there no solution beyond medication? What if we dig deeper into what anxiety really means?
How does anxiety tire us?
All emotions are useful in their right and necessary degree, and are therefore positive.. Anxiety is often considered a negative emotion, even if in reality this way of categorization belongs to the psychiatric field. Anxiety is simply a form of fear that has become widespread. You have become accustomed to living in fear, as in a constant state of vigilance.
Fear is positive if you manage it functionally. A functional fear helps you protect your life and the lives of others. Anxiety, on the other hand, like with high stress, has no positive function. Anxiety is having learned to live in fear of everything, in constant worry and anticipation of problems or situations that do not have to exist.
How is anxiety generated?
First of all, it is important to stress that we are living through a very complicated time when it comes to anxiety. The current pandemic we are experiencing and the containment processes have wreaked psychological and emotional havoc on the population, which has increased the number of cases of anxiety. However, the most worrying is not this, but the number of cases of people receiving medication for anxiety when it was not strictly necessary (But this problem could be solved and avoided by learning to understand and deal with this anxiety and fear).
Medication administration is a very delicate matter which in the long run can make it difficult to resolve the problem.
For more than 10 years, I have been supporting people in their personal change process as a psychologist and coach. Since March 2020, the number of people experiencing additional difficulties with anxiety and discouragement has increased alarmingly. However, the good news is that these people manage to turn their situation around through their own personal change (more easily in the case of people who do not take drugs, and more difficult and slower in the case of the latter).
For this special and important case today I left a very special video where we explore what anxiety is, where you feel it, and most importantly how to start solving this problem forever through your own personal change. . Give it a game!
What to do?
Anxiety is a state of fear that has become widespread, and the biggest mistake we can make is associating it with sadness, discouragement or depression. The reason a diagnosis is made using an “anxiety-depressive” image is that anxiety leads to depression, not because they are the same. To treat such a generalization from a pharmacological point of view may be necessary if the case is acute, but dangerous and limiting in the vast majority of cases.
We are depressed because we are tired of being anxious. And we are anxious because we breathe through the diaphragm, in constant vigilance and observation. Learn to breathe, to understand situations, to understand where the rushing emotions of the problem come from, How do you deal with them and, most importantly, how can you learn to understand and manage them so that instead of being against you, they are in your favor, this is the main way for anxiety be a fleeting and unpleasant experience instead of a permanent or frequent state in your life.
