Anxiety Disorders

If you tend to feel anxious whenever you’re asked to do a presentation during one of your weekly office meetings or speak at an engagement, you can take comfort in the fact that everyone has experienced anxiety at one point or another in their lives. After all, anxiety is one of those holdovers from the times of our prehistoric ancestors when they had to face situations that are more life-threatening compared to what we mostly experience these days. But if your anxiety is occurring more frequently than you think it should that it’s already affecting your routine, we at Life Resolutions Croydon can provide you with personalized treatment that’s right for you.

How Is Anxiety Disorder Different from Plain Anxiety?

You might find yourself loosely interchanging the terms “anxiety” and “anxiety disorder” as the latter doesn’t usually pop up in your typical casual conversation. However, anxiety disorder is way different compared to regular anxiety. Some of the things that make an anxiety disorder different from plain anxiety are as follows:

1. Anxiety disorder occurs even in situations where most people don’t experience any anxiety at all.

For someone to become anxious, there has to be a certain trigger incident that caused it to happen. In the example stated earlier, the stressor that led to anxiety happening to you is when you were suddenly asked to speak in front of a group or an audience.

  • However, if you’re currently suffering from anxiety disorder, you may feel anxious even in situations that don’t warrant the said feeling at all like paying your bills or washing the dishes.
  • To make things worse, you might also find it difficult to pinpoint what exactly is causing you to get too unnecessarily anxious.

2. Someone with anxiety disorder feels anxious for weeks or even months.

To use the earlier example again, you might have initially felt anxious after being asked to speak in front of a group or an audience, but much to your surprise, you somehow made it through your presentation or speech.

3. An anxiety disorder can leave several physical and mental ill effects on you.

As you were giving your presentation or speech while you’re suffering from regular anxiety, you may have found yourself drinking a glass of water to soothe your nerves, but that’s usually the most you might get after feeling anxious for a while.

4. Anxiety disorder makes you completely avoid doing all the things that make you anxious.

After you’ve finished your presentation or speech, you may have realized that you’ve got the knack for public speaking. You may even want to do more of it as you’re completely sure that you won’t feel as anxious anymore the next time you speak in public.
