Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety can be debilitating. It is primarily characterized by excessive worry, the kind that interrupts or prevents your sleep and seems to take over your life. This worry occurs more days than not and is difficult, if not seemingly impossible, to control.

People with anxiety feel restless or “keyed up.” They describe being “on edge” or “wound too tightly” or “high strung.” Because so much energy is needed to worry for weeks or months or even years on end, folks with anxiety are often exhausted. This extreme fatigue leads to an inability to focus or concentrate and in many cases, causes irritability.

Other anxiety symptoms include nausea, jitteriness, racing heart, a “lump in the throat” feeling, and sweating. Escalating anxiety can lead to panic, accompanied by chest pains and a feeling of suffocation, because severe anxiety sufferers unconsciously hold their breath or breathe too shallowly. They may even think they are having a heart attack–very distressing indeed!

In addition to these symptoms, anxiety also causes muscle tension and

Mental Health And Parental Programming

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…from folk wisdom to scientific study, all agree that conditions and character are passed down from generation to generation, whether by nature or nurture. Though most generational physical diseases have a genetic (nature) element, many behavioral conditions seem to be generational mostly by nurture, or parental programming. Since Mom and Dad didn’t set out to mess us up, it’s important we understand their roles in our mental health and find a way to get beyond our programming and become who we want to be. That’s what this article is about.

Patterns Of Anxiety, Anger, Addiction, Depression, Etc: My father has been dead over 30 years, but I often find myself leaning on my porch rail exactly as he did. I first discovered his subconscious influence on my life when I began verbally abusing my wife for no reason. That sparked what has become a 20-year study in human behavior. The patterns exist in every family, for good and bad, alike. With a few exceptions, traits of kindness and decency, addiction, cruelty, even odd tilts of the head and other quirks are found throughout every family. I believe these things could even be mapped if you had enough generational information.

Family behavioral traits are so reliable that many have tried to prove a genetic cause. While it’s convenient to pin our bad behavior or mental health issues on our genes, that kind of thinking may duck very real causes and

Facing Anxiety in the Workplace


Almost everybody, no matter how confident they may seem, has a great fear of the unknown. Everybody has his own anxieties and combating fear is such a great challenge for everyone. For some, it may even be a source of entertainment as portrayed in the hit reality TV show “Fear Factor”.

Anxiety is something not just shown on TV, it is something very real. One place that can create great anxiety in people can also be the place where most people built their careers and the place where they get their own source of income – the workplace.

Work is one of the leading sources of stress and anxiety. Dealing with strict supervisors, chances of a demotion, whether you can get your job done on time and ultimately, the fear of getting fired can really give every worker something to be anxious about.

In any workplace, there is an existing system that you are forced to adhere to. These may include rules, regulations and office policies. Sometimes anxiety is brought about the fact that there may be some conflict of interest between doing what you think is right and what the present system dictates.

The first step in combating anxiety is to accept that you are undergoing such stage. No matter how society
