How healthy is your anxiety?

It’s natural to feel anxious from time to time, after all, it’s a natural response to life’s pressures. However, if it starts to feel constant or overwhelming then it’s time to get help. Here at Life Resolutions Essendon, we understand that anxiety can take a hold, and affect day-to-day decision making.

What’s concerning is that anxiety is becoming more prevalent in the workplace. Recent studies into Australian corporate mental health showed that almost one-third of the subjects were suffering from some form of mental illness. Additionally, studies around the world have found that this anxiety greatly affected people’s workplace performance, relationships with co-workers, quality of work, and their relationships with superiors. That’s why it’s so important to recognise anxiety’s physical symptoms and get professional help early. To prevent it from not only affecting your general health but your career too.

Physical symptoms of anxiety:

  • Overall feeling of dread, panic, uneasiness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Having trouble sleeping
  • Trouble being calm and still
  • Experiencing shortness of breath
  • Feeling dizzy or nauseous
