You Might Have Anxiety If....

Updated: Apr 13, 2022




Is there a chance you are suffering from anxiety???


Anxiety can look different for everyone, but it presents a problem no matter how it shows up.


You might have anxiety if you:


~ Have trouble concentrating or focusing on daily tasks ~ Have racing thoughts ~ "Over think" everything or think you are "in your head" too much ~ Have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night ~ Have experienced panic attacks or anxiety attacks ~ Frequently feel nervous, stressed out, anxious, or scared


These are just some of the symptoms that anxiety can bring.


Individuals who suffer from chronic anxiety usually develop a secondary problem of depression, which makes it harder to treat.


Another consideration is, the longer you have anxiety, the more likely you are to experience something called, "generalization of fear." This is when your anxiety grows and you begin to feel anxious about multiple things in your life.


For example:


Let's say you start off with feeling anxious about speaking in front of a large group at a meeting. Over time, that anxiety can grow, causing you to now feel anxious speaking in front of small groups, or even feel anxious about speaking in a 1-on-1 meeting.


As the anxiety continues, you might find that your anxiety grows even further, causing you to become anxious in any setting with many people, even if you're not talking to them, like a mall or store.


This phenomena is called "generalization of fear," and it's how Generalized Anxiety Disorder is born.


The good news is, anxiety is incredibly treatable! And I'm happy to help you on that journey toward an anxiety-free life if you think that's something you want.
