How To Deal With Excessive Anxiety Disorder?
Hello I want to consult, this is the type of person who is easily panicked and anxious even for one thing that hasn’t happened, sometimes I can overcome that anxiety but sometimes that anxiety makes me stressed to the point of interfering with my period, then when I face a problem or dealing with someone my body always shakes and is hot and cold, is that natural? Then how can I control my excessive anxiety?
Hello Alexandra, Thank you for the question.
Anyone must have felt anxious or afraid because these emotions are normal emotions. Usually a person becomes anxious or afraid if faced with a new environment, public speaking, take an exam, or face certain problems. However, if these emotions appear excessively over time if they are not caused by obvious triggers and interfere with daily activities, then you need to be aware of anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders can cause symptoms of anxiety or excessive fear, palpitations, cold sweat, shortness of breath, trembling, suffocation, abdominal pain, dizziness, weakness, and loss of consciousness. Apart from anxiety disorders, your complaints can also be caused by depression and hyperthyroidism.
There are a number of suggestions you can do:
if symptoms appear, use a breathing relaxation technique by breathing deeply through your nose and exhaling slowly through your mouth. Do this repeatedly until you are calmer trying to follow yoga or meditation trying to practice living what is before your eyes and not thinking too much about things that have not yet happened. If these thoughts come, you can try to divert your mind by occupying yourself, for example, talking to your friends, exercising, or doing your hobbies make it a habit of living a healthy life with adequate rest, consuming nutritious food, adequate consumption of water, avoiding smoking habits, and avoiding consumption habits alcoholic drinks If this complaint has been going on for a long time, is increasingly difficult to control, and is very disturbing to you, you should consult with a mental specialist / psychiatrist.
