Welcome to the Anxiety 30 Day Challenge. My aim is to inform you on what causes anxiety, what happens to your body and mind when you get anxious, and, most importantly, what you can do to minimize your concerns.
The majority of this challenge will be devoted to anxiety reduction, and I invite you to follow along and give each tip and idea a try that day and in the future. We’ll start by talking about what anxiety is and how it can affect you throughout the first few days.
While simply reading more about anxiety may cause you discomfort at first, it is critical to grasp the full picture. This will help you execute the anxiety-reduction strategies and become more adept at recognizing what works and what doesn’t.
While you may not want to read or discuss anxiety, there is much to be said for confronting the problem full on. In most circumstances, what we are most concerned about is uncertainty. We become concerned when we do not understand what is going on or do not have a clear image of what the future holds. That is why the first few days are crucial.
Anxiety is a normal mental condition. Every human being encounters anxiety at some point in their life. It’s nature’s way of getting our bums in gear or anticipating and reacting to a potential or future threat. We wouldn’t be driven to stockpile food if we weren’t worried about the long, gloomy winter. We wouldn’t make the time to study instead of going out with friends if we weren’t worried about an exam. Anxiety can be beneficial, even if it does not always feel pleasant.
The issues develop when we are anxious too much and too frequently. The fast-paced society we live in, with its many demands on our time and attention, as well as continual stimulation, can lead our anxiety to spiral out of control. This has the potential to be a major issue. Certain hormones, such as adrenaline, are released into the body when we feel anxious.
Our pulse rate rises, our breathing rate rises, and we prepare for a fight or flight response. It’s entirely normal to feel apprehensive every now and then. As the thread is dealt with or removed, the body gradually but steadily returns to normal. But what happens when you are constantly anxious? What happens when you experience anxiety on a regular basis, as many of us do?
The body has no time to relax. We’re always on high alert. Our bodies must continually inject more adrenalin and cortisol into our systems. We become more tense and nervous as time passes. This causes a great deal of chronic stress on the body and psyche. That is the type of anxiousness we will strive to eliminate.
It is not a matter of never feeling nervous again. It is all about regaining and restoring balance, health, and well-being. I hope you will join me in this 30-day endeavor. Read through each piece, experiment with the recommendations and tips, and pay attention to how you feel.
