Anxiety and Tensions are normal emotions that anyone can feel.
Anxiety can be a driving force to solve certain difficulties well, but some people feel tension and anxiety more than normal reactions to trivial problems for no particular reason and last for a long time. In this case, treatment is recommended.
How does your body react when you feel anxious?
- Your heart beats faster and faster, making your chest pound and your palms sweaty.
- Your chest feels tight and feel out of breath.
- You may feel stuffy as if something is hanging in your throat.
- Frequent urination, loss of appetite, and poor gastrointestinal function.
- Insomnia is present and often accompanied by headaches.
How to Reduce Anxiety
- Self-regulation (in many cases muscle relaxation, abdominal breathing, biofeedback, self-hypnosis, meditation, regular exercise)
- Avoid excessive consumption of caffeinated drinks or excessive alcohol, and if you are taking drugs, you should stop.
- Drinking alcohol to get rid of anxiety right away, or taking drugs without a prescription should be prohibited.
- If possible, discuss your concerns openly with someone you trust.
According to studies so far, three factors, biological factors, genetic factors, and psychosocial factors, work in combination with each other to cause depression. Since the contribution of these three factors varies from patient to patient, it is helpful to look for these factors in treatment.
