Anxiety, of varying degrees, is one of the most common therapeutic issues I have seen in the past 30 years in my private practice as a Marriage Family Therapist.
Struggling with anxiety can ruin the quality of your life. The good news is that learning some healthy coping skills can help you diminish these difficult feelings.
The medications that are often prescribed for anxiety, benzodiazepines such as Xanax, can be brain altering and addictive. Many people do not want to take these drugs. Some people, that have been taking them, really wish they could get off of them. Managing anxiety with healthy coping tools can help reduce or eliminate the need for medication.
This podcast discusses some of the causes of anxiety, what happens in your brain and what can you do to help yourself. It might just be time to further your understanding of anxiety and learn some good coping skills.
