“Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strengths” – Corrie Ten Boom

While a certain level of anxiety can be motivating, when it becomes overwhelming, it can have a profound impact on our lives. It manifests through symptoms such as loss of confidence, distorted thinking, and an overwhelming sense of burden.

Anxiety often sneaks into our lives unnoticed, leaving us feeling disconnected from ourselves. It becomes problematic when it starts affecting our daily functioning. Even if you understand the root causes of your anxiety, managing its symptoms can be challenging.

When we struggle to connect with our thoughts and emotions, we find ourselves trapped in a repetitive cycle, disconnected from our true selves.

Like unhealed wounds, anxiety keeps resurfacing until we gather the courage to confront it head-on. Imagine holding a beach ball underwater - no matter how hard you try to keep it down, it always pops back up. Similarly, until we acknowledge and face our fears, they will persist.

Here are some common physical and emotional responses triggered by anxiety:

Physical Symptoms:

  • Irregular breathing

  • Upset stomach

  • Excessive sweating

  • Trembling

  • Racing heart

  • Nervousness or restlessness

  • Negative thinking

  • Avoiding social situations

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Catastrophising (imagining worst-case scenarios)

Emotional Responses:

  • Lack of self-belief

  • Uncertainty

  • Indecisiveness

  • Overwhelm

  • Difficulty silencing negative thoughts

  • Feeling out of control

  • Agitation
