Understanding Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety and stress—are two emotions we all experience. They are valuable motivators in small doses, pushing us to accomplish tasks and making safer choices. However, when overwhelmed, these feelings can trigger our body's instinctual 'fight or flight' response.
The Impact of Excessive Anxiety and Stress
When anxiety or stress escalates beyond our control, it can lead to reactions such as anger, fear, avoidance, or even disassociation—our body's coping strategies. In extreme cases, panic attacks can occur when we're out of options or when the fear is directed towards anxious feelings. These intense episodes can leave you feeling shaky and drained for the rest of the day.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety
At Mind Mode Psychology & Wellness, one method we use to combat anxiety and stress is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT helps us modify our thought patterns and behaviours, enabling us to handle anxiety more effectively.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for Stress
Another effective treatment we employ is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT teaches us how to accept the presence of anxiety without fear, allowing us to understand better and manage these feelings.
Embracing Anxiety as a Catalyst for Growth
The journey towards understanding and managing anxiety can be transformative. It's surprising, but sometimes, the things we fear most can propel us the furthest. By embracing anxiety instead of fearing it, we can harness its power to motivate us rather than letting it hold us back.
