Have you been feeling more nervous and scared? Feel like you are on high alert all the time? Is going out and doing regular things causing you to panic and avoid?
Anxiety is the ‘smoke alarm’ for ourselves. It warns us when there is a danger… but sometimes it gets confused and thinks there is danger when none is around. Sometimes our smoke alarm goes off when we are boiling water on the stove – it’s a ‘false alarm’. Learning to manage anxiety is all about controlling our physical reactions, regulating our emotions and learning to challenge those false alarms. Equipping yourself with tools that stop you from overexaggerating danger and underestimating your ability to cope. Learning how to accept a level of anxiety as normal and productive while also learning to identify our triggers to our worry.
Odyssey Wellness can help you to learn tools that challenge Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Phobias, PTSD, as well as mild Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
