Learn to Reduce the Effects of Stress, Anxiety, Panic, Phobias and PTSD

If you suffer from chronic anxiety, effects of trauma or post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), getting through life can become exhausting, if not overwhelming. This is especially true if you have severe anxiety and your anxious feelings or PTSD symptoms (see article below) are triggered by things you have to do everyday. For example, imagine the difficulty a person would go through if they suffer from intense social anxiety or agoraphobia. Activities like going to the store, asking for direction, and being out in public become painfully difficult.

Symptoms of anxiety, panic or phobias include
  • Racing heart
  • Shortness of breath or hyperventilation
  • Sweating or flushing
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Intense desire to avoid situations that elicit anxiety
  • Feelings of confusion, dread or fear

If you experience these symptoms you can learn to manage your anxieties, PTSD, phobias or stressors. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, help you overcome the overwhelming emotional and physical symptoms of these disorders. You can learn to become more aware of your triggers and become better prepared to manage your reaction, your anxious and overwhelming reaction, to those triggers. If you've had therapy that wasn't effective, or if you are just unsure if therapy will work, then I encourage you to read the articles and view the videos I've posted about anxiety. You can start by reading on below to learn about the six types of anxiety disorders. The information I've posted will help you understand how anxiety works and how it's most effectively treated.
