2018-04-18 06:24:49

What are the dangers of chronic anxiety? Anxiety occurs in everyone, and occasionally it is generally not harmful. What about long-term anxiety? 1. Long-term anxiety is as bad for men as high blood pressure, making them vulnerable to heart disease, arrhythmias and other life-threatening conditions. Men with higher than average levels of stress and anxiety were about 25 percent more likely to develop heart disease and 23 percent more likely to die. Moreover, 24 percent of these men developed a condition called atrial fibrillation, which can cause convulsions and death. 2, Harm to women For women, anxiety will make women's life significantly shorter. Women with anxiety disorders were 23 percent more likely to die over the 10-year period. Warm tips: Although anxiety will not directly cause damage to the body, but its harm absolutely can not be ignored, long-term anxiety is likely to make patients have suicidal thoughts. So how to overcome anxiety? Let me tell you about it. Start by asking yourself if your anxiety is valid or not. Will your anxiety lead to a range of behaviors in the next day or two? What do you do to eliminate this anxiety? Is it going to develop one item at a time? If not, it is ineffective anxiety. The second thing is, are you willing to accept uncertainty? One of the problems at the heart of all anxiety is your attitude towards uncertainty. One of the things I say to people is that on uncertain days, you think about all the things you do: cross the street, eat at a restaurant, say hello to a stranger, take the elevator, get on a plane. There's uncertainty in all of this, you don't have absolute certainty, but you can basically make a good bet. The third point is to identify what your expectations are and what your challenges are. One of the things we do is get people to take time out of their anxiety. You write down your worries for 30 minutes a day and put them aside so you don't mope around all day. One of the purposes of this is not to get certainty but to get bored. Boredom works. It keeps you lazy. The fourth point is to look at the scope of your anxiety and whether it relates to your core problem. Do you have to be perfect? Do you have to be better than anyone? Do you think you can't live if you don't have a family? The fifth is how do you deal with failure? Anxious people tend to think of failure as catastrophic, and they tend to believe that if they think about failure, they will fail. In fact, the vast majority of things people worry about tend to have fairly positive outcomes. The sixth is to use your emotions instead of your anxiety. Sometimes emotions, especially the feeling of pain, are an important source of information about your needs: more love and appreciation at work, more opportunities for advancement. You can't always feel good. The last thing is to make time for yourself. Take a timely look back and see if something you normally worry about is bothering you now. You can take a step back. You can make time. Imagine how you'll feel a month or a year from now. One of the problems with anxious people is that they are forever living in a future that never came. The best thing to do is to try and try to focus your mind on the best present moment possible, which is to enjoy the present moment to the fullest. What happens in the brain when you're anxious?
