Merriam Webster Dictionary Definition of ANXIETY

1: fear or nervousness about what might happen

2: a feeling of wanting to do something very much

Common anxiety signs and symptoms include: (The Mayo Clinic)

  • Feeling nervous, restless or tense
  • Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom
  • Having an increased heart rate
  • Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation)
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than the present worry
  • Having trouble sleeping
  • Having difficulty controlling worry
  • Having the urge to avoid things that trigger anxiety

 

Self-treatment: Self- care steps that may be helpful in some less- serious cases:

  • Exercise daily
  • Maintain a positive attitude
  • Get enough sleep
  • Learn what triggers anxiety and alleviating it
  • Eat well- balanced diets
  • Practice relaxation techniques and meditation
  • Stop smoking and consumption of caffeinated drinks

When to see a doctor

  • You feel like you're worrying too much and it's interfering with your work, relationships or other parts of your life
  • Your fear, worry or anxiety is upsetting to you and difficult to control
  • You feel depressed, have trouble with alcohol or drug use, or have other mental health concerns along with anxiety
  • You think your anxiety could be linked to a physical health problem
  • You have suicidal thoughts or behaviors — if this is the case, seek emergency treatment immediately

ALWAYS READ THE WORD! Scripture memorization is a  great tool in helping me stay calm!

1 Corinthians 15:10 NKJV But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was  not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all ye not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
