Does this pattern of anxiety sound familiar? You wake up and almost immediately begin worrying. Thoughts racing, the worry intensifies during your day sometimes to the point where you’re so tired from the apprehension that you can’t sleep at night. This lack of sleep leads to even more worry, which sometimes leads to extreme moments of panic when you feel as if you’re going insane or facing some impending doom or your death. Afraid that this terrible feeling will occur again, you begin avoiding whatever it is that you think may have set off the appalling reaction. If you continue this pattern, you’ll find you can’t leave the house for fear of the entire world.
Anxiety leads to Depression
If you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, you know there seem to be few answers that can help. Doctors can prescribe medications, but typically fail to cure the anxiety. It can affect not only your life but your entire family as well. Not being able to socialize and partake in your life can lead to depression, which only worsens the situation.
One Solution: Neuro-Linguistic Programming
Luckily, neuro-linguistic programming or NLP is available to help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety. NLP is a combination of psychiatry and hypnosis, used to ease all manners of symptoms. By working on the underlying patterns of fear and removing the limiting beliefs that often lead to feelings of anxiety, many people have been helped tremendously from the practice of NLP.
NLP works on anxiety by changing how the mind perceives situations. If you suffer from anxiety, you know the cyclical pattern of worry. The anxiety starts from one thought and then snowballs into a crashing avalanche. With NLP, that first thought can turn into a snowflake that lands on a warm pan. Yes, you notice the snowflake, and you watch it disappear once it hits the pan. Rather than snowballing out of control, the thought now comes and goes as thoughts should.
No matter what treatment you decide to use for anxiety and panic attacks, you need to take action. If anxiety is left untreated, it can ruin your life. From avoiding fun activities to experiencing the darkness of depression, anxiety is a severe condition. Learning NLP is one effective and useful way to heal and treat anxiety and its effect.
