We’re hearing from more and more people about their Anxiety. It’s the most prominent emotional health condition in the developed world, and can manifest through a variety of feelings or behaviors including isolation, fear of the unknown, restlessness, boredom, agitation, withdrawal. Binge-eating, Binge-watching anything-on-a-screen, feeling hopeless, feeling sad, feeling a loss of control. If this sounds familiar, it’s possible you’re experiencing some Anxiety.
You’ll notice I used the word ‘feeling’ quite a bit. That’s because Anxiety doesn’t have any outward signs. This invisible nature of Anxiety makes it really difficult to spot in others, and unless you speak up, others may not know that you’re suffering either.
On a good day, Anxiety affects nearly 20% of the adult population in developed countries. And today? With the world upside down? It’s impossible to guess.
And when Anxiety becomes more severe, it may show up in a more pronounced way. A physical ‘try-ignoring-me-now’ way. If you are experiencing heart palpitations, a buzzing sensation in your head or chest, or in some cases a crushing feeling in your chest making it difficult to breathe, well first of all, call 911. And after you’ve been seen by a professional and you’re certain that you are otherwise ok, it’s possible that you were having the king of Anxiety symptoms – a panic attack.
So what can we do to stay one step ahead of Anxiety?
Ah, Anxiety. Not just for 20% of the developed world anymore. Now, (thanks a lot virus) it’s for everyone.
