How to Cope With Anxiety

Anxiety is a common mental health condition that can affect people of all ages. It is a normal response to certain situations, but it can be excessive and interfere with everyday activities.

Symptoms can be physical, psychological or both. Anxiety disorders include panic disorder, social anxiety disorder and generalised anxiety disorder.

Most anxiety disorders are treatable, but it can be hard to know when treatment is needed. Your GP or other healthcare provider can help you decide whether or not to have tests and treatment.

They will also check that your anxiety isn’t caused by something else, such as depression. If the cause isn’t clear, your doctor might refer you to a psychiatrist or psychologist.

The treatment you need will depend on the type of anxiety disorder you have and how severe it is. Your GP or healthcare provider can recommend medication, talk to you about lifestyle changes and try therapy to get your symptoms under control.

You might need to change your diet and stop smoking or drinking caffeine. Changing these things can help you cope with the symptoms of anxiety and make your treatment more effective.

Stress management techniques and meditation are good ways to reduce stress and anxiety. Joining a support group can help you share your experiences and coping strategies with others who understand what it’s like to have a mental health disorder.

Medication is a form of therapy and may be used for short-term relief from the symptoms of anxiety. Antidepressants, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are commonly prescribed for anxiety disorders.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors act on brain chemicals called norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine to relieve the symptoms of anxiety. They are sometimes combined with other medications to reduce their side effects.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is another type of treatment for anxiety. This therapy helps you to think about your thoughts and feelings in a new way, so that they don’t trigger symptoms.

You might need to have a series of sessions with your therapist. It will take time and patience to see if this is the right approach for you.

Your doctor might ask you to fill out a questionnaire about how you feel in different situations, and they may order tests to rule out other conditions that can cause your symptoms.

They can recommend a variety of treatments that will work for you, including antidepressants and other medications. They might also recommend counselling, talking therapies and mindfulness techniques.

These treatments are often used in conjunction with other types of treatment, such as exercise or a balanced diet. They can help you deal with your anxiety and improve your quality of life.

The treatment you need will depend in part on how severe your symptoms are and how long you have had them. If your symptoms haven’t responded to other treatment options, your doctor might prescribe a more powerful medication or suggest you see a therapist for longer-term therapy.

Anxiety can be very limiting, and it’s important to seek treatment early if you have the disorder. Getting the help you need can be life-changing.
