Anxiety is a term used to describe a broad range of reactions to excessive fears and worries, such as panic attacks, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behaviours and post-traumatic stress. Anxiety is usually separated into three elements:
- The physical sensations such as increased heart rate
- The emotions you get while experiencing them
- The thoughts that enter your mind at the time
Anxiety can be also be a natural and necessary reaction that aids our survival, and stops us from taking excessive risk. It can also be the temporary effect of stress or worry about a particular issue, but like anything, in excess, it can be problematic and become just as disabling as a physical illness.
The common theme within any form of anxiety is the effect it has on the body, and the physical symptoms that affect daily life. These physical sensations such as heart palpitations or a knot in our stomach, can result in further and more exaggerated sensations of anxiety. This vicious cycle can make anxiety difficult to escape from.
The majority of us will experience anxiety at some point in our lives. Common events such as job interviews, work presentations, changing jobs or taking examinations, can all be a source of anxiety.
What you will learn on this course is strategies, skills and techniques to manage minor anxiety and how to stop life events spiralling out of control. You will be able to manage your performance better both at work and whilst taking your examinations.
