4 Interesting and Important Things to Know About Anxiety Disorders

Interesting and Important Things to Know About Anxiety DisordersHere are 4 interesting and important things to know about anxiety disorders, so you can get support and master the situation.

The human brain is quite complex. The way it processes is something that still astonishes scientists around the world.

How a person reacts to a certain kind of situation varies a lot; no two persons would react the same way. It might be similar, but it would never be the same. 

When a person undergoes physical or emotional stress, how they respond to it varies based on their personality, experience, and other factors.

However, if there is constant worry or stress without any triggers, it could be deemed as anxiety.

Anxiety is quite common these days, as over forty million people in the US suffer from it. But this is only the number of people diagnosed. Many go on their whole lives without getting a proper diagnosis.

Unfortunately, anxiety disorders do not usually go away unless you try to eradicate them from the roots.

This is why anxiety therapy programs are a viable option to help deal with the symptoms and overcome them. Therapeutic groups, or therapists in general, will take on a unique approach since your symptoms, triggers, and reasons will be unique to you. They will draw in from your past, heal your present, and inhibit psychological growth for the future.

So, if you think you suffer from an anxiety disorder, read on for some important insights.

Here are 4 interesting and important things to know about anxiety disorders.

1. Might be genetic

While you deal with your life experiences, external factors mostly influence anxiety. But, if it’s running in your family, then there are more chances of you also suffering from it.

Genetics could make it more prevalent in some individuals, but this area is still not well-researched.

2. Even children can suffer from it

Contrary to popular belief that children lead a worry-free life, anxiety can even affect children who are just four years old.

More than four million children have been diagnosed in the United States alone. But the penetration rate of therapy still needs improvement as only half of the children receive therapy or treatment of any kind for their disorder.

3. Induces flight or fight instinct

The human body is quite instinctive.

For instance, people tend to run much faster when they are in trouble or a dog is chasing them.

That is, the mind’s fight or flight instinct kicks in.

When it comes to emotional things, the fight or flight presents itself differently. People with anxiety may often deal with cold feet and hands, as the brain restricts the blood flow in non-essential areas of the body and transfers most of it to the torso and other vital organs. Here’s a research backed calming technique from U of Pennsylvania, to help you manage this flight or fight instinct.

4. May cause memory loss

One of the many things people often realize when undergoing Anxiety Therapy is that they do not have memories of their pasts.

It is because memories are potentially affected when a person goes through constant periods of stress.

Even if you have general anxiety, it could haze your memory.

It is essential to reach out for help if you think you have some type of anxiety.
