Those who are struggling may find their anxiety to be unmanageable, having it greatly impact their everyday lives. This is known as having an anxiety disorder, which involves extreme fear and worry. These feelings persist over great periods of time, and while situational anxiety dissipates rather quickly, an individual suffering from a true mental health disorder will find that the feelings get more and more severe the longer they struggle. It is common for people to feel like they should simply be able to “snap out of it” or “get over it,” when the reality is that an anxiety disorder is a serious mental health issue that must be addressed accordingly. Therapy and medication regimens are some of the ways anxiety can be treated, but there are also things you can do yourself to better cope. Our Clinical Director of Mental Health Services at Banyan Boca, Rob Cole, LMHC shares some expert tips on managing anxiety.
