What Is Anxiety
What is anxiety?
The word anxiety come from the Latin word anxious, meaning a condition of agitation and distress. The term has been in use since the 1500’s. You can better understand the nature of anxiety by looking both at what it is and what it is not. For example, anxiety can be distinguished from fear in several ways. When you are afraid, your fear is usually directed toward some concrete, external object or situation. The event that you fear usually is within the bounds of possibility. You might fear not meeting a deadline, failing an exam, being unable to pay your bills, or being rejected by someone you want to please.
When you experience anxiety, on the other hand, you often can’t specify what it is you’re anxious about. The focus of anxiety is more internal that external. It seems to be a response to a vague, distant, or even unrecognized danger. You might be anxious about “something bad happening.”
What are the symptoms?
Anxiety affects you whole being. It is a physiological, behavioral and psychological reaction all at once. Hypnosis is one of the most powerful tools in modifying the perception and attitude of the individual. If the individual is experiencing any of the following symptoms, hypnosis could be the answer to dealing with them:
- Shortness of breath
- Heart palpitations (rapid or irregular heartbeat)
- Trembling or shaking
- Nausea or abdominal distress
- Dizziness or unsteadiness
- Feeling of detachment or being out of touch with yourself
- Hot flashes or chills
- Fear of going crazy or out of control
- Fear of dying
