Finding the Source of Your Anxiety and Panic

Stress is like changes in our daily lives. Everyone has to face stress and bear it. The point of the matter is how you deal with stress to reduce anxiety and panic attacks from your everyday life. Stress is present in our minds, activities, daily living, and the like.

Environmental stresses can include the stresses caused due to our social and personal losses like an injury to a near and dear one or the death of someone close to you or to some outstanding bills etc. The identification of environmental stresses can be done by the fact that they put forward huge expectations from you. We often tolerate loud honks at the traffic signals, peeping neighbors, expectations and stresses at work place considering them as inevitable. We so often feel that our self-confidence is being bogged down due to a fall in our performance. We seem to be losing our confidence at such times instead of reminding ourselves that in spite of any failure you remain the same person. We should not let stress take control of our mind and behavior because then it will lead to panic attacks and make way for anxiety.

Our body undergoes changes everyday since our inception in our mother’s womb. We grow vertically until we reach twenty years and then make way for other directions to grow. We face several changes in our body until we cross adolescence. Women undergo several biological transformations like periods and menopause. We all battle the process of ageing. We all fear illness and injuries because they may make us frail and may cause physical pain. Though the process of change cannot be avoided, it can be slowed down by proper diet and exercise regime. Thus, we must avoid harmful chemicals like cola etc. as far as possible.

The human mind is the biggest source of stress. It causes stress because it is not programmed to deal with just every kind of situation and thus, you blow off under certain circumstances and don’t blow off in the other. More often than not, our mind perceives the changes around us as negative and those, which are out there to destroy us. Stress can never be a way of life as some of the high profile corporate refer to it. It can only cause huge damage to your body in the long run.

The mind is the lock as well as the key to stress and its removal. If our mind misinterprets something then it cause emotional outbursts, anxiety, and panic. On the other hand if our mind perceives something in the way we want it to then our behavior is polite and tone happy. Therefore, it is clear that our state of mind determines our public behavior. Anxiety and panic are more often the results of stress caused due to misunderstanding etc. In addition, more often than not anxiety and panic come from absolutely unnecessary sources like from someone who gave you a bad stare while you were walking down the lane etc.

In our relationships too concern, worries and stress result into anxiety and panic. Arguments between spouses can be on small issues as well as large ones. If they are not sensible enough to resolve the matter as quickly as possible then it would cause further stress and lead to anxiety and panic attacks.

Most of the time people get flustered because they cannot accept changes as a natural course of action. They mistake them for negative and dangerous sources. Thus, we must accept change as a way of life and should think twice before reacting in a stressful condition.

    I am very interested in how the mind impacts health. Deborah King has written “Truth Heals,” which delves extensively into this topic. She demonstrates how anyone can release deep-seated layers of denial, fear and anger in order to heal the mind and body. Think about when you’re angry — your whole body tenses up — it’s terrible for you! And all those feelings make us sick. This book has been a Godsend for me.
