Anxiety is your body’s natural stress detector. It alerts you to possible dangerous circumstances and helps you to focus on staying safe. But experiencing this emotion consistently along with excessive worrying could be indicators of an underlying anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorder can result in physical symptoms such as:
It can also cause an inability to concentrate, irritability, insomnia, and fear of impending doom. Many of these symptoms can influence and impact your social and family life as well as your school and work performance. Finding the right methods and coping mechanisms for when you are dealing with anxiety is of the utmost importance.
Getting Help for Depression
Losing interest in what matters most to you is difficult. Whether it’s family, friends, your career, or your passion, depression can make you feel as if nothing matters and the world has gone dark. It is important to note that depression is more than just an emotion. It is a serious mental disorder that can impact your thoughts, feelings, and personal decisions.
There are a variety of different behaviors and symptoms that can be a manifestation of depression, which is why taking an individualized approach to each case is imperative. At Positive Living Psychotherapy, our Dr. Keown implements a holistic approach to overcoming depression that involves traditional psychotherapy combined with positive thinking and optimism.
Healing for Body Image Issues
When you picture yourself in your mind, how do you look? How do you feel about your shape, weight, and height? Starting at a young age, people begin to develop a mental image of how they see themselves. This picture can be either positive or negative. When this perception of your body is negative or warped, it impacts your self-esteem, affecting how you respond to and interact with others in day-to-day life.
Common symptoms of negative body image include:
● Continual comparison of one’s body to others
● Dependency on alcohol, drugs, or sex in relationships
● And other damaging habits
