Anxiety, a common problem which responds well to treatment, is characterized by excessive worry.
Some worry is helpful. For example, worry may be helpful when we are faced with problems and need to consider our alternatives before making a choice.
Some people worry too much, and instead of solving a problem, too much worry becomes the problem. Others may experience panic attacks, a potentially disabling syndrome without treatment, yet treatable with a high rate of total remission.
A recent survey found that one-third of all office visits to primary-care physicians are related to some form of anxiety.
Anxiety treatment helps mental and physical wellness
When excessive anxiety frequently floods the body with cortisols (i.e., stress neurochemicals), this may also pose health hazards, leading to an increased risk for blood pressure and heart ailments, immune system deficiencies, and cancer. Therefore, learning anxiety management techniques can aid in wellness.
Addressing an anxiety problem in therapy may help to alleviate unnecessary worry, as well as allow you to find more useful ways to think through problems and find solutions. Along with receiving feedback, therapy includes learning productive ways to manage anxiety and increase your effectiveness in all aspects of your life.
