YOU likely have a general anxiety problem that you probably only notice when you are alone at night.
Anxiety can seem debilitating , yet it is very treatable. There is medication for it , which tends to work best in combination with psychotherapy.
Exercise is a big help in reducing anxiety symptoms. Learning to keep calm through yoga, tai chi and self-hypnosis can also help.
Consider how your diet could be triggering anxiety.
Dancing can help you lighten up and release tension.
Anxious people are shallow breathers. Learning to breathe properly can help you control your general levels of tension.
On the spiritual side, the challenge for anxious people is to master true faith and trust so you feel supported. - Leonard Carr
UNDERSTANDING the source of your fear is key to creating an environment in which you feel safe and relaxed when alone.
A perceived threat is as stressful to the body and mind as a life-threatening situation.
It means your body is on a perpetual adrenaline rush with no release when you are alone.
I would suggest you seek counselling from a therapist who can help you come to terms with your fears and support you in finding coping skills to overcome your anxiety. - Stephanie Dawson-Cosser
