Fear and Anxiety is a universal emotion that every one of us has. Up to some extent fear and anxiety are good for you, but over-anxious will prevent you from moving ahead. In this post”Mudra for fear and Anxiety” I am going to share the types of Anxiety and the list of mudras that are useful to overcome fear and anxiety.
There are several types of anxiety including panic disorder, social anxiety, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety.
Anxiety is a universal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Most of the people feel anxious, or nervous when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test or making an important decision. Anxiety, however, is different. They can cause such distress that it disturbs with your ability to lead a normal life.
An anxiety is a severe mental illness. For people with anxiety, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming and can be crippling.
What Are the Types of Anxiety?
There are several known types of anxiety disorders, including:
Panic disorder: Individuals with this condition have feelings of terror that strike suddenly and repeatedly with no warning. Other symptoms of a panic attack are sweating, chest pain, palpitations (unusually high or irregular heartbeats), and a feeling of choking, which may make you feel like you having a heart attack or “going crazy.”
Social anxiety disorder: Also called social phobia, social anxiety disorder involves overwhelming worry and self-consciousness about everyday social situations. The worry often centers on a fear of being judged by others or behaving in a way that might cause embarrassment or lead to ridicule.
Specific phobias: A specific phobia is an intense fear of a particular object or situation, such as snakes, heights, or flying. The level of concern is usually inappropriate to the situation and may cause you to avoid common, everyday situations.
Generalized anxiety disorder: This disorder involves excessive, unrealistic worry and tension, even if there is little or nothing to provoke the fear.
What Are the Symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder?
Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety disorder, but general symptoms include:
- Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness
- Problems sleeping
- Cold or sweaty hands and feet
- Shortness of breath
- Heart palpitations
- An inability to be still and calm
- Dry mouth
- Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
- Muscle tension
What Causes Anxiety Disorders?
The exact cause of anxiety disorders is unknown; but anxiety disorders — like other forms of mental illness — are not the result of personal weakness, a character flaw, or poor upbringing. As scientists continue their research on mental illness, it is becoming apparent that many of these disorders are caused by a combination of factors, including changes in the brain and environmental stress.
Like other brain illnesses, anxiety disorders may be caused by problems in the functioning of brain circuits that regulate fear and other emotions. Studies have shown that severe or long-lasting stress can change the way nerve cells within these channels transmit information from one region of the brain to another. Other studies have shown that people with certain anxiety disorders have changes in certain brain structures that control memories linked with high emotions. Also, studies have shown that anxiety disorders run in families, which means that they can at least partly be inherited from one or both parents, as the risk of heart disease or cancer. Moreover, certain environmental factors — such as a trauma or significant event — may trigger an anxiety disorder in people who have an inherited susceptibility to developing the disease.
