You feel flooded with anxiety. You feel like you cannot fully enjoy things due to overwhelming stress and worry. You tend to avoid and procrastinate, which only intensifies your overall stress level. You are tired of being told ‘stop worrying too much’. You have tried and you cannot make it stop. Perhaps you feel like those closest to you are frustrated with your anxiousness and this makes you feel even more alone.
You may feel like if you didn’t care, things would simply fall apart. You are white knuckling through much of life and you feel miserable. You choke back tears a lot. You are tired. You are really tired. You are tired of feeling tired. You find yourself lost in the ‘what-if’s’ and find that you cannot sleep at night. You stare at the ceiling, willing yourself to sleep, wishing you knew how to quiet that anxious chatter in your mind. You might even drink or take sleep aids with the hope of waking up less drained. You look at others and wish you could be like them–carefree and seeming to enjoy a life free of anxiety and worry. You feel lost and stuck. Your body hurts. You get sick a lot. You know this is not good for you but you just do not know what to do to make it stop.
As strange as it sounds, anxiety is actually a normal and adaptive emotion. To some degree, anxiety likely motivated you and encouraged you to keep going when others would have stopped. However, you can learn to manage anxiety and stress so it no longer manages YOU.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just switch off the anxiety like a light switch? I understand your worry is not a choice. You do not ‘choose’ to be so stressed that your head and stomach hurt. However, I can help you learn how to keep anxiety from taking over your life. This may include learning to be present in the now and limit the negative looping. To learn to set realistic goals and boundaries that allow for balance but continue to encourage you to be the productive person you are. Fear is a huge contributor to anxiety, this may include fear of criticism, disappointing others or of failure. You may be striving hard to avoid these painful situations and creating a negative loop that is even more hurtful to you. I can help you break free of this pattern and create a new one.
I CAN HELP YOU TO FEEL MORE CALM, BALANCED, AND JOYFUL. I INVITE YOU TO GET STARTED TODAY.
