Living in a world burdened by new and persistent problems of family, work, and life in general, it does not come as a surprise that mental health issues have become widely pervasive amongst our generation.
It’s not uncommon to feel a tad bit anxious before a significant moment in your life; this may include a big presentation at a corporate seminar, or preparing to propose to your loved one, or starting a new job.
However, there is also the anxiety that doesn’t leave, that seeps into your everyday routine, and keeps you from living your life normally—that’s problematic, and should never ignore it. Untreated, anxiety can take a massive toll, not just on your cognitive capabilities, but also on your physical health.
People may tell you that you’ll eventually figure it out. You may think that you can and should be able to figure it out. However, it takes more than just a few breathing exercises to manage chronic anxiety;therapy is a good place to start.
