The Causes of Anxiety

Anxiety is a problem that creates a big change in the way we view life, how we behave, and how we feel. Even daily, acute anxiety can make you feel as if you are losing your sanity. Because of this, know some of the causes of anxiety to help stop the problem even before it starts to take place.

When your brain wrongly anticipates dangers or threats, you experience anxiety. It can suddenly happen at any time or any-place where you least expect, but most commonly occur in the home and at work.


Symptoms of this can include:


– Irrational Fear
– Pains or tightness of the chest
– Shortness of breath
– A rapidly increasing pulse rate or excessive sweating
– Confusion or lack of concentration


Other causes of anxiety attacks can include:


1. Nervousness:  because you have to do something or are in a situation where you simply do not feel comfortable.

2. Traumatic Experiences: Any traumatic experience that may have occurred to you anytime during your life, like the loss of a loved one

3. Prolonged stress due to a working in a stressful work environment: This is very common, especially for those who work long hours and are under pressure to get work done by particular deadlines.

4. Negative self-talk is among the causes of anxiety: This is a habit of forever telling yourself how bad you are, how much you lack, being negative, etc.

5. Genetics: It could be in your blood. Research is still underway to discovering whether this is hereditary or if it is learned.

6. PTSD: Researchers believe that there is a link to the presence of anxiety among those people who underwent a long-term abuse, stress, violence, and poverty.

7. Diet: Anxiety can also be attributed to certain drugs, foods, and sickness. Low blood sugar and food allergies may contribute to these attacks. Overindulgence of caffeine may increase the probability of an anxiety attack.


Common health conditions associated with extreme anxiety include:


– Insomnia
– Chronic ailments and a destabilized immune system
– Burden on your heart and circulation resulting in lasting damage and probable heart disease
– Back problems
– High blood pressure

To efficiently control your anxiety attacks, you should be aware of triggers. Sometimes, not always, there’s a trigger. It could be a smell, a person, thought, a situation or even a sound.

If you are suffering from acute anxiety, there is a help. In addition to medication and therapy, there are methods you can learn to not only manage but to eliminate debilitating and destructive anxiety from your life.
