What Does Anxiety Look Like?

Anxiety and stress are a part of the human experience. 

A little of it can actually be a good thing.

For example, you may be taking a test. In this case, a little anxiety can help you focus and sharpen your critical thinking skills. Imagine taking a test and being 100% relaxed. Instead of taking the test, you might find yourself daydreaming or wanting to take a nap.

Why Do I Need Anxiety Treatment?

Anxiety is different from stress. Stress is a natural reaction to something temporary in our life. But, anxiety can be more generalized. It isn’t always connected with a known trigger and generally sticks around longer. But, anxiety symptoms can still come in waves. It may sound like a helpful idea to wait out stress and let it resolve over time. But, ignoring or avoiding anxiety will likely make it get worse over time. Anxiety treatment can help you manage your stress before it becomes too great.

Manage Anxiety Symptoms

Feeling in control of your life means knowing how to regulate yourself. Sometimes this is quick and easy. You can learn to recognize the signs that you are going into a spiral and take some deep breaths, for instance. Sometimes it takes a lot more effort. This is often affected by how dysregulated you already are. Plus, how much ongoing stress you have in your life.

Our therapists are creative and persistent. We’re determined to help you find a routine that works for you.

Find Balance

Balance only means keeping things in perspective. For each person, this might look different. For some, it might involve making time for exercise. For someone else, it might be having tricks to help you be more unbiased and stay out of “black and white thinking”. Your therapist will help you to explore what balance looks like for you and help you to install it.

All of the anxiety therapists at Hope For The Journey are trained in EMDR which can be a fast, effective way to shift your perspective in the long run.
