Beating Anxiety



Healing Spirit: Guided Meditation for Relaxation, Anxiety and Depression





These episodes can last minutes, sometimes even hours, and can be very disabling to most people as they essentially can freeze a person like a “deer in the headlights”. Being paralyzed by fear is a very real notion to those that suffer with panic attacks on a regular basis. The Cause The cause for a panic attack is not usually obvious, but it is something that is generally “normal” as a part of a regular stressful modern life. 

Chest pain due to a racing heart, shortness of breath, and dizziness are all symptoms you may experience before the fear sets in. In the end, any uncomfortable sensation that is realized which makes you become fearful for your life is considered a symptom of anxiety, and therefore should be treated as such until you can confirm your suspisions. 

For example, the likelihood of a generally out of shape individual with poor time management skills and poor stress management skills of experiencing a panic attack in a stressful situation is significantly higher than that of a well adjusted person that is confident with their time and stress management skills. 

Here the individual learn to cope with difficult situations through controlled exposure to the problems. Thus, getting back in charge and taking control once again of life. Cognitive Therapy This therapy works with changing unproductive or harmful thoughts to positive and constructive thinking... One learns to examine and distinguish realistic from unrealistic thoughts. 

Health care professionals are learning that the instances of panic attack and depression coinciding together are more common that thought. While not everyone who is depressed will have panic attacks, many people who suffer from panic may very well be depressed. There are certain SSRI antidepressants on the market today that are specifically recommended for use in treating anxiety along with depression. 

An anxiety disorder panic attack will continue to occur only because the sufferer has not done enough to prevent it by not handling the stress properly and allowing other factors to interfere with normal stress management. Factors like a poor diet, little to no exercise, and insufficient stress relief can all add up to bigger problems.
