Most people worry. It’s a fact of life that life can be stresful: money, bills, jobs, family, etc. can sometimes prevent you from relaxing and actually enjoying your life as much as you’d like to. What’s worse, all that worrying can make you sick, including disrupting healthy sleep habits, making you unable to focus, even causing you to make unhealthy food choices.
But thankfully, there are real ways to push your anxiety aside and get some peace of mind.
How to tell if you have a serious anxiety problem
Nearly 7 million Americans not only worry, but they find that they just can’t stop worrying. These people feel tense and anxious all the time, even when there is little to worry about. When this lasts for six months or longer, doctors call it generalized anxiety disorder, or GAD. In severe cases, GAD can greatly interfere with everyday life.
Additional anxiety disorders that tend to be more serious include:
- Panic disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Social phobia
What are the symptoms of stress?
Typically, stress can cause head pain, even muscle pain or tension. Additional symptoms can include nausea and trembling.
7 Ways To Stress Less
- Limit/avoid caffeine
- Avoid recreational drug use
- Try to get more sleep
- Practice yoga/meditation
- Get a massage
- Listen to soothing music
If you suspect that you have a more serious anxiety issue, talk to a doctor or mental health specialist about ways to feel better and calmer.
