Common anxiety triggers you need to know about
Anxiety is something almost all of us have experienced before. It is a perfectly natural and biological reaction to certain situations when you feel unsafe.
However for some people, anxiety can be a cripplingly constant feature of their everyday life, preventing them from completing seemingly simple tasks. Being able to recognise the triggers for your anxiety is a great starting point to begin managing it.
Below we have listed some of the most common anxiety triggers. If you recognise these as present features of your current life, it may be time to start a plan to manage your anxiety
Meal skipping - We are all told that the most important meal of the day is breakfast. Often for anxiety sufferers nausea and shortness of breath in the morning can put them off breakfast. Skipping any meal, will mean a dip in energy and therefore, your mood. If your body is low on sugar you will begin to feel cold and shaky, anxiety will set in.
High levels of stress - Stress is sadly an everyday feature of all our busy lives. Stress from work, family or a sudden change in your life can trigger anxiety which affects your appetite, mood and sleep.
Social situations - It is often difficult for anxiety sufferers to do something as enjoyable as meeting friends for dinner. Thoughts may be racing through your head before you leave and you might be constantly checking your bag to ensure you have everything. People are understanding and often taking a step back and allowing yourself 10 mins away from preparing to go out will help you prevent the possibility of a full anxiety attack.
Financial problems - Bills piling up and rent due can bring on anxiety especially if you know you have a less than secure financial situation. Although anxiety often begins as a psychological reaction, these can begin to affect your body physically. Proper organisation of your financial situation could help you feel more in control of your anxiety.
A sudden chain in routine - Although routines make us feel safe from our anxiety, comfort zones often stop us from recognising our triggers. A change in routine or plans can trigger anxiety, making us feel insecure and out of control.
