Is it Possible that You have an “Anxious Physique”
Nowadays, anxiety has become an epidemic. Everyone has anxiety disorders. It is strange not to be anxious. We often want to “overcome anxiety”, but have you found that the more you want to overcome it, the anxiety will stick to you tightly. The secret of not being anxious lies in acceptance and guidance, not confrontation and elimination. Anxiety is not a bad mood, but the body’s defense mechanism.
There are many diseases caused by anxiety disorders, mainly as follows:
‧Chronic pharyngitis, oral ulcers
Irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, chronic gastritis
Nervous headache, dizziness, , insomnia, dreaminess
Excessive sweating, night sweats, fear of cold, fear of wind
Cardiac neurosis, gastric neurosis
Stiff neck, migratory joint pain, phantom limb pain
Poor memory, slow response, neurasthenia
Premature ejaculation, susceptibility to colds, weakened immunity.
Anxiety is a global problem. The well-known advertising company “J.Walter Thompson” has conducted a survey of consumers in 27 countries and regions around the world. The results show that on average 71% of people are in a state of anxiety, of which 76% in the United States, Japan is 83%, South Korea is 78%, Russia is 68%, and China is 57%. Human health includes two aspects: physical health and mental health. The two complement each other and influence each other. But most people only pay attention to physiology and ignore mental health.
In fact, psychological problems can harm the body like germs. Anxiety is an epidemic.
Anxiety is a very bad emotion. It is a feeling of worry, tension, restlessness, and distress that is about to face a bad situation. Anxiety usually has the following notable characteristics. The painful emotional experience that is not commensurate with the situation is frightening because there is no definite objective object, specific and fixed concept content.
Psychomotor disturbances, such as restlessness, walking back and forth, running and shouting, may also show involuntary tremors.
Autonomic nervous system disorders accompanied by physical discomfort, such as sweating, dry mouth, chest tightness, shortness of breath, dyspnea, heart palpitations, nausea and vomiting, frequent urination, urgency, dizziness, general weakness, especially the legs. In addition, as mentioned earlier, anxiety has a certain degree of concealment, and outsiders often cannot detect it.
Why are there so many anxious people now? From a social point of view, the first is fierce competition and increased pressure in life, such as imperfect economic security, unemployment, food safety, and disease; second, the gap between the rich and the poor is widening, and the social class is gradually solidified. The sense of balance gradually deepens.
From a personal point of view, one is the improvement of material life, which arouses people’s desires, but they cannot completely satisfy their desires, which will inevitably produce anxiety; the other is the lack of faith. Many people do not have true faith and place their hearts on the material. In this way, it is easy to produce a sense of emptiness, which is accompanied by anxiety.
“Anxiety itself is not terrible. What’s terrible is that we are afraid of it.” When we feel anxious and afraid, we will be easily distracted by gains and losses. Human attention is limited, so when part of it is used for anxiety, attention will naturally decrease.
The brain is the most complex organ of a person, and it contains countless neural circuits. Any thoughts may come out of my mind. Moreover, this is often an involuntary process. The more you want to exercise restraint, the more you can’t restrain it. Instead, you will focus all your attention on restraining distracting thoughts and forget what you should do now.
In fact, if you want to restrain distracting thoughts, the key is to learn to regulate and channel your emotions and relieve anxiety. In this way, you can better your own thoughts and avoid too many distracting thoughts.
Anxiety usually accompanies insomnia. People often amplify emotions such as worry, tension, and fear, and the amplifier is the association. The more you think, the more anxious, and anxiety will make the associations richer, forming a vicious circle, making it difficult to sleep. Insomnia is caused by long-term accumulation of anxiety in the brain. When exposed to anxiety for a long time, the brain will secrete the hormone “Ca-techolamine”, which makes the brain more prone to nervousness and restlessness. In this case, for the same thing, these people are already anxious before other people feel anxious. For example, because I am afraid of making mistakes again, I think about it every night. This will intensify the secretion of “catecholamines”, which in turn leads to insomnia. As the main driving force of insomnia, Lenovo can be divided into internal and external categories.
The association of internal feelings is mainly the excessive attention to the inability to fall asleep, and then a vicious circle occurs: the more you try to fall asleep, the more nervous you become, and the less able to fall asleep. At this time, you need to divert your attention so that you can fall asleep easily. Insomnia caused by external factors often occurs in persistent associations of insomnia caused by sleep-related behaviors or states. For example, when a patient lies in a bedroom where he often spends sleepless nights, it can cause conditioned reflexes—cannot sleep here. With this preconceived idea, it is very difficult to fall asleep. If you can change the sleeping environment, maybe the situation will be much better. There are many harms caused by insomnia, especially long-term insomnia will make people age quickly, and physical problems will follow one after another.
