You’re not alone. Stress affects almost everyone. You may notice it when you’re at work, when coping with your kids, or when coping with a difficult relationship. Stress is everywhere. A little stress is fine, and may even be good for you, but too much can be overwhelming and it can make you ill.
Stress is the body’s reaction to harmful situations, be they real or imagined. People have stress reactions every day. You might worry about your daughter getting home from school on time… or a report getting to the boss on schedule… or any of thousands of scary little imaginings throughout the day. Most of them are completely below your awareness, and normally would be no big deal, but stress is cumulative. You become like a bathtub with the drain plugged. Even a little drip will eventually cause the tub to overflow.
When people suffer from chronic stress the body and brain stay in a permanently high state of arousal. The body and the brain become exhausted and become unable to return to a resting state. You become hyper vigilant, like a soldier guarding the fort without sleep. If this chronic stress and anxiety lasts for too long, you will experience physical and mental symptoms.
You owe it to yourself to free yourself from your constant anxiety
With chronic stress our brains get stuck in that emotionally and physiologically hijacked state. We can no longer return to a state of calmness. The stage is set.
Your threshold has been lowered so that anything can set it off. It’s kind of like a motion detection burglar alarm. If it’s set too low, a breeze can trip it. And that is what a panic attack is. It is an overly sensitized response with a very, very low threshold.
Luckily we can retrain the brain to raise the threshold and become less sensitized to every upset. We can learn to trigger a calm attack just as we can train ourselves to trigger a panic attack.
Most issues require four to eight sessions for complete success. Of course, this varies depending on the particular issue, on secondary contributing factors, such as sleep distress and stress levels. What you CAN expect is noticeable positive change after the first session.
