Experiencing occasional nervousness is a part of life. However, if your nervousness climbs to uncomfortable levels, it can cause you to avoid certain situations, restricting your life. Anxiety can be triggered by a current event or perhaps it started in childhood. Either way, anxiety can trigger other related problems, such as depression, insomnia, lowered self-esteem, procrastination, excessive worry, or social isolation. If anxiety persists, it can also have serious consequences on your physical health. Long-term anxiety can cause your brain to release stress hormones on a regular basis which could increase your chances of health conditions such as weight gain, cardiovascular events, digestive problems, or a weakened immune system.
Therapy is often a good place to start when you are suffering from an anxiety disorder. In fact, therapy tends to be more effective than medication for most people for these types of problems. Certain therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques, can teach you how to manage your anxiety, minimize worry, and conquer your fears. In addition, therapy provides you with lifelong skills to manage your anxiety whereas medication only works when you take it.
