Eliminate Stress and Anxiety
Stress is a part of daily life. It‘s how we react to it that makes all the difference in maintaining our health and wellbeing. Pressures occur throughout life and those pressures cause stress. You need to realize that you will never completely get rid of stress in your life, but you can learn coping techniques to turn that stress into a healthier situation.
Here are different ways you can face debilitating anxiety and panic attacks that many people suffer from. While researching this book, I‘ve come across some amazing information and can‘t wait to share it with you. I‘ve learned so much myself, so let‘s look at how to eliminate stress and anxiety from your life!
It seems like you hear it all the time from nearly every one you know – ―I‘m SO stressed out!‖ Pressures abound in this world today. Those pressures cause stress and anxiety, and often we are ill-equipped to deal with those stressors that trigger anxiety and other feelings that can make us sick. Literally, sick.
The statistics are staggering. One in every eight Americans age 18-54 suffers from an anxiety disorder. This totals over 19 million people! Research conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health has shown that anxiety disorders are the number one mental health problem among American women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse by men. Women suffer from anxiety and stress almost twice as much as men.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in America, surpassing even depression in numbers. Anxiety is the most common mental health issue facing adults over 65 years of age. Anxiety disorders cost the U.S. $46.6 billion annually. Anxiety sufferers see an average of five doctors before being successfully diagnosed. Unfortunately, stress and anxiety go hand in hand. In fact, one of the major symptoms of stress is anxiety. And stress accounts for 80 percent of all illnesses either directly or indirectly. In fact, stress is more dangerous than we thought. You’ve probably heard that it can raise your blood pressure, increasing the likelihood of a stroke in the distant future, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
