Anxiety is a form of fear and most unpleasant to experience. It is the body’s natural response to danger, an automatic alarm that goes off when you feel threatened, under pressure, or are facing a stressful situation. So it’s normal to feel anxious when facing a challenging situation. But if worries and fears seem overwhelming and interfere with daily life, professional counselling can help.
The bottom line is that if your lifestyle is unhealthy and stressful, you’re more likely to feel anxious. So, if you feel like you worry too much, take some time to evaluate how well you’re caring for yourself.
- Do you make time each day for fun and relaxation?
- Are you getting the emotional support you need and do you ask for help when you need it?
- Are you taking care of your body? Do you eat healthy foods? Do you exercise regularly?
- Are you overloaded with responsibilities?
If your stress levels are through the roof, we can work together to bring your life back into balance. If you’re feeling isolated or unsupported, please, do make an appointment with our Victoria office. We can go over some strategies for managing anxiety. Just talking about your worries can make them seem less frightening.
