Let’s get started…
Do you know someone who worries all the time? Do you or someone you know worry obsessively? Does every little thing bother you & make you worry? Many people live their lives worrying incessantly and needlessly. Whether there is valid reason or not, worrying constantly can become a bad habit. When left alone, this bad habit of constant worrying may lead to serious mental health issues. It can also affect 1’s personal life and career. Thus, it is very important that a person who has this problem consult a doctor or health care provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Chronic worrying is sometimes categorized as anxiety disorder. People who are chronic worriers often feel anxious about things that they face or things they are going to do. People who are anxious all the time may have the symptoms of this chronic disorder. Their anxieties may be unnecessary but they could not control themselves from being anxious. People who may have an anxiety disorder may also tend to avoid situations that cause them anxiety. Lack of sleep, headaches, sweating and breathing difficulties are also symptoms of anxiety disorder.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is the solution for this anxiety related chronic worrying. People who are diagnosed with chronic worrying or anxiety disorder can go to a therapist to get the treatment started. Cognitive behavioral therapy involves changing the way a chronic worrier thinks about problems and changing his approach to those problems. Cognitive behavioral therapy does not take effect immediately or over night. Instead, it goes on for a period of time. This is because it involves changing a person’s thinking (the cognitive part) and actions (the behavioral part). Cognitive behavioral therapy aims to help one project a positive approach to a problem rather than a negative approach.
