Post Lockdown Anxiety
As a generation, we have never been so anxious. Anxiety manifests itself cognitively by a loss of concentration, behaviourally by the avoidance of certain situations (fear), and physiologically in disturbed sleep, rapid breathing and emotional agitation often leading to hypervigilance.

Then along came COVID19 which impacted on increased levels of loneliness and isolation. This has all been outside of our control. There has also been concern and safety for loved ones. There has been increased levels of fear, overwhelm, and worries as a result of  uncertainties. This is all in relation to social distancing, becoming ill, anxieties about leaving the house or being in public spaces and much unease.

Physical signs of anxiety

When you are suffering with anxiety, you are in what’s call the ‘fight or flight’ response.

 

What does the science show us?

Your body is preparing you for a ‘dangerous’ situation and and a part of the brain is triggered to prepare for this and your body reacts in several ways physically. This response happens without you thinking, which triggers the nervous system, called the ‘autonomic nervous system’ which automatically activates physical responses within the body. The brain activates the muscles, lungs and heart to enable you to prepare to engage with the dangerous situation or to flee. You muscles tense, your heart beats faster, blood rushes to the extremities and sweating increases. Read More “Physical signs of anxiety”

COVID anxiety signs

Mental health issues are very prevalent right now, more than ever for several reasons.

Not only are we dealing with something that continues to create uncertainty, fear and worry, many have been affected both directly and indirectly. While some are coping well, experts warn our emotional resilience will continue to fray and decline as this continues to drag on.

As we are living in a place of constant fear, we remain in a heightened state of arousal, which evokes a traumatic response in many.

The problem is, our sympathetic nervous system can only remain in a state of overwhelm for a period of time. We are not built to be in a state of high alert, or ‘chronic response’ permanently. Read More “COVID anxiety signs”
