ANXIETY, STRESS MANAGEMENT
Anxiety: This is not an imaginary illness. The suffering is real. Where does this anxiety come from? Some people are born with greater sensitivity.
They react more strongly than average to threatening situations. Some drugs decrease the extent of anxiety symptoms. For now, let's focus on the psychological aspect of anxiety.
Certain beliefs make us more vulnerable to the effects of anxiety. Some are more vulnerable to symptoms of anxiety because they have an excessive need for approval.
Anxiety is associated with a particular point of view that causes us to overestimate danger and underestimate our abilities. We imagine ourselves on the verge of being fired every day. Anxious people thus burn a lot of energy imagining all kinds of catastrophic things to themselves, reacting as if they were already happening.
What to do? You can fight anxiety by questioning the point of view associated with it.
Here are a few tips.
Observe your internal thoughts and images.
Think of your scary thoughts as guesswork.
Cast doubt on your worries by adopting a more realistic point of view.
Get in touch with your internal and external resources.
Make realistic and positive assumptions including the possibility of success.
Look with his eyes and listen with his ears rather than your memories or your imagination.
Face what you fear in small steps.
Concentrate on the task you are doing. Avoid wondering about the impossible.
In the general population, all anxiety disorders have a prevalence of about 15% over about 12 months (and up to 20 to 30% if we consider the whole life).
They are among the most frequent mental disorders. Generalized anxiety disorder affects 2-6% of adults (slightly more women than men).

The speed of our daily lives can sometimes make individuals, children or adults more vulnerable than others to finding optimal functioning in their schedules.
