The first step to overcoming anxiety


Today, the word "anxiety" seems to be part of everyday language, yet many people don't really understand what it is.

We humans have very complex ways of feeling unsafe, such as fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of embarrassment, feeling blamed, judged, criticised etc.

If these feelings of being "unsafe" become frequent, intense or for long durations, anxiety will occur.

For some people, anxiety is a debilitating disorder, for others, anxiety restricts them and reduces their comfort zone. When you learn to overcome anxiety, you start making decisions from discernment, not fear.

In mental health, knowledge is power, and the first step to overcoming anxiety is to learn about it. Understanding the physiology of anxiety and mood change is a very powerful start to managing and overcoming anxiety.

The Beyondblue website has great information about anxiety and it's signs and symptoms.
