Are you anxious? Do you worry a lot or find yourself thinking about the “what ifs”? Are you restless or do you have trouble relaxing?
If you can relate to any of these and you’re here reading this, you struggle with anxiety and are looking for help. You came to the right place!
It takes a lot of energy to deal with anxiety, often leaving you feeling exhausted. Even if you’re able to fall asleep, you wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble falling back asleep. Or maybe you lay awake in bed unable to fall asleep for several hours to begin with. Living with this kind of anxiety is draining.
It also takes a lot of focus to worry about so many things. Your mind is constantly working, unable to give you a break and stealing your attention away from other more important things. It might even be affecting your memory, causing you to become forgetful. You might be having trouble remembering simple things, misplacing your belongings, or missing important events because you double-booked yourself.
If you’re like a lot of people with anxiety, you even stress about your anxiety! You might also struggle in relationships, worrying about how you sound or what others are thinking about you. You might feel afraid of interacting with people or going to social events, finding yourself becoming disconnected or isolated. Anxiety can be a lonely problem to have.
