Anxiety

Are you someone that generalizes your lack of self-esteem? By that I mean, do you make generalities about yourself such as, “I’m an idiot,” “I’m not pretty enough or smart enough?”

You are worrying to a degree that you have trouble doing daily tasks and are suffering with your emotions. Anxiety disorders keep people from living joyful and fulfilling life. Luckily there is help.

Start to pay attention to the thoughts behind the feelings. Instead of thinking the worst will happen, challenge the thought. What is the realistic likelihood the worst will happen on a scale of 1 – 10?

The more you do this, the more you will retrain your mind to process life differently.

Exercise will produce chemicals in your brain that will help elevate your mood and decrease your stress or tension, which will provide some relief for your anxiety. Exercise will also help you sleep. Not only will the physical exertion improve the quality of your sleep, it will help insure you’re able to sleep without interruption.

Caregiver burnout happens when a person has become physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted from the stress and burden of caring for a loved one.
