Why Do I Suffer from Anxiety?

Anxiety can be a normal human response to a stress situation and serves to prompt the person to cope in difficult circumstances. For some people a little bit of anxiety is useful for getting into action or getting psyched up. 

However, the reality for most people is that the symptoms of anxiety impair enjoyment, performance and well being. There are better ways of getting prepared and ready for action. 

Studies show performance increases with anxiety to a peak performance level and then declines as anxiety increases beyond that. Where are you on this curve?

Performance Anxiety Curve

If you are over the peak your performance is impaired and it's likely that your enjoyment, relationships and even health may be suffering as well.

There are many types of anxiety - performance anxiety, competition anxiety, anxiety with depression, social anxiety phobia, OCD, PTSD, anxiety attacks, separation anxiety, stress anxiety, anxiety panic attacks and plain old over-thinking or worry to name just a few.

We get good at whatever we practice. No matter which type of anxiety, the more intense and the more often it is repeated the more easily your system will run the pattern. In some cases that can can lead to the anxiety generalising and creating a General Anxiety Disorder, where unwarranted anxiety is brought on by what would otherwise be normal every day events. So it's important to find an effective way to overcome your anxiety quickly to prevent it getting worse.


So How do I Overcome Anxiety?

There are many different treatments for anxiety. Some much more appropriate for professionals than others. In the UK, the NHS typically only offers medication or basic CBT / mindfulness exercises that can help reduce symptoms of anxiety. 

The limitation of those exercises is that they require you catch yourself feeling anxious and interrupt the thought patterns. The problem with methods of intervention based on noticing and interrupting your own thoughts is twofold:

  • 1
    It's not easy to control the way you think when anxiety has got a grip on you. That's kind of the point isn't it? 
  • 2
    Professionals typically need high productivity and to respond to what's happening in the moment in presentations and meetings, not stopping mid-flow to practice mindfulness. (Ommmmm... Can you imagine? It just isn't practical).

Medication can have it's own drawbacks, including dependency and dulling other important emotions necessary to give us motivation, direction and enjoyment in life. That said, if free is your primary criteria the NHS is the best place to start.  (Please note this website does not give medical advice. For medical advice please consult your doctor).
