Anxiety and Depression
You’re not alone if you suffer from Anxiety and Depression.
In Australia anxiety is the most common mental health condition. Around 1 in 4 people will experience anxiety and depression in their lifetime. Although some people manage, more and more people are showing signs of anxiety and depression.
For some people suffering with anxiety or depression it can be debilitating. Not only does it have an impact on your health is also affects those around us.
Why is this? The reason is that we live in a society where great demands, pressure and responsibilities are placed on us. You may be one of those people who have reached a stage where nothing has worked and you are looking for new ways of freeing yourself from anxiety and depression and living a happy and fulfilled life, where you are free to do things that bring you pleasure.
It is a normal part of the human protection system to experience this fight-or-flight response, but only when there is real and present danger. To experience prolonged flight-or-flight creates feelings of anxiety. It is often rooted in a previous experience that triggered fear or in a general anxiety and worry about your situation at home or at work.
There can also be anxiety without knowing what is causing it, a general feeling of anxiety known as “free floating” anxiety.
So why is it important to reduce anxiety in your life? What difference will it make to you? Research shows that prolonged exposure to cortisol and other stress related hormones can cause:
Weakened immune system
Increased blood pressure
