Anxiety – The Reality

Anxiety is really about a lack of predictability and a lack of control of outcomes or events that are in the future. The feelings of unease that accompany this mind set are caused by having an excess of adrenaline circulating in your system that is caused by an activation of your stress response.

Usually there is no immediate physical danger accompanying anxious thoughts but with though alone you are kick starting and revving up your natural stress response. So obviously anxiety is stress full.

Your thoughts and thinking activate your HPA ( Hypothalamic-Pituatary-Access ) into releasing adrenalin from your kidneys and also activate your parasympathetic nervous system, so your heart speeds up and your blood pressure rises. All readying your natural fight or flight system. With anxiety there is usually no physical adversary to fight and nothing to run away from.

When you have the physical symptoms of the anxious stress response, a surplus of adrenaline surging in your body, receptors in your brain detect this and this helps to reinforce the feelings of lack of control and lack of predictability. This is a vicious cycle.

No one in their right mind is going to suggest your anxieties arn’t real because you know otherwise. The feelings associated with your thoughts and worries are real. You can feel them. You know this.  An experiment with a Lemon.

When you do something over and over again it becomes a habit or a default setting. Like tying your show laces or brushing your teeth, starting in the exact same place using the same hand. You know an automatic action – a habit.

Anxiety most commonly has two aspects. The verbal inner voice story you are telling yourself and the associated images of a possible and unwanted future. These two components our inner talk and visualisation create the physical feelings. Which means you are actually very good at self hypnosis. Hypnosis to make yourself anxious but self hypnosis non the less. So you are doing Anxiety Hypnotherapy Newcastle already!
