Symptoms of anxiety vary from person to person,but anyone who suffers from anxiety knows how uncomfortable the symptoms are and how much they interfere with everyday functioning. I would like to be able to say that I have discovered a cure that will remove these symptoms for all time, but I have no such cure. However, you can learn to manage anxiety such that it becomes less frequent, less frightening and interferes less with your life.
Why should you abandon the idea of eliminating your anxiety? Stress is a part of our everyday life and anxiety can be a signal that you are becoming overloaded. When you challenge yourself to set new goals or explore new avenues in life, then you are bound to feel some anxiety. If you want to feel no anxiety, then you will not challenge yourself to new goals or different experiences. In short, you will shortchange yourself.
Managing your anxiety means learning to manage the tension that builds within your body. It means being able to control worry and other tension-provoking thoughts. And managing your anxiety means learning to challenge yourself to perform acts of courage. These may include seeking out new experiences or learning to relate to others differently.
