Coping With Anxiety

There are really many methods of coping with anxiety.

They include relaxation and visualisation techniques, hypnosis, behavioral training, anchoring and many others. These methods are good, and can bring you desired results, in some cases really quickly. People differ, so each of us have to find his or her own way. Some techniques will work for you better than others, but for most us these mentioned above will work. I’d like to share with you one more method for dealing with anxiety.

One other method that is hardly ever discussed, is actors training.

This is especially good when you want to work with public speaking anxiety. Choosing this option you don’t really aim in reducing your anxiety. You just focus all your energy on looking as you were free from it. This works near the ‘fake it until you make it’.

You learn to behave like you were completely relaxed.

You train your body to move like it was relaxed, just like actors learn expressing many different emotions, you learn to express self-esteem, and comfort with speaking in public. After some training, your body language will only display signs of comfort and confodence. You train your voice to mimic the tone and modulation those who are confident presenters. And after some time you may realize, that although your fear of public speaking didn’t vanish, this fear is not a problem any more. You learned to live with it.

Sometimes the anxiety itself is only half of the problem,
and the other half is that we can’t stand that others see it, and judge us because of it. This method is a good option for those who tried other methods, and didn’t get visible results. It may also lead to reducing or elimination of public speaking anxiety. In some cases it’ll work like that – thanks to your actor’s training, you’ll see you’re getting better results when speaking, and audiences like you more and more, and that makes you feel more comfortable. This way anxiety may vanish, despite you didn’t work directly with it.

What Do You Know About Stress?

Stress is a serious problem of western civilization. Most people doesn’t know there are two kinds of stress. One of them is what we typically think of – negative tension that makes us less effective, destroys our self-esteem, and is really unpleasant. It’s called distress. But there is another type of stress that is really pleasant. It makes us feel extremely excited, and fills us with positive emotions. It’s called eustress. It makes us ready for new challenges, and gives us a lot of energy.

What is really interesting is that the chemical reactions that take place in our brains are always the same. There are exactly the same hormones released when we feel frightened by a dog, and when we feel joy of a ride in your new car. And they often cause the same symptoms, like pounding heart, vertigo… What differs is our perceptions of these symptoms.

What it really means? That what we feel (anxiety or excitement) depends on who we perceive the situation. If we’ll be able to change our perception of a given situation, we can easy change how we feel. And the ‘bad stress’ (distress) may disappear. Good example of that we can find in public speaking. Many people believes that if the speak they need to be perfect, know all the answers, and be the number one expert on the World to be accepted and appreciated. Therefore speaking in public is extremely stressful event for such people. And solution in many cases is quite simple. It’s enough to realise we don’t need to be perfect, to add significant value to the audience. Then just focus on this value, and how we can add it. And most part of fear may disappear, or even change into excitement. It all depends on what we believe in.

Distress make huge damage to the health and condition of nowadays people. It adds to the depression, heart attacks, and is a hidden cause of many other diseases. The high level of negative stress is  such common problem, that everyone should find the difference between these two kinds of stress, and do something to turn the bad one into the good one.

Depression Solution

What is Depression?
Depression is a mental disorder where a person has a prolonged period of sadness, unhappiness, helplessness, hopelessness or worthlessness. These feelings often get worse over a period of time, causing a person to have feelings of self-doubt, severe despondency and dejection.
Depression is an extremely common illness. There are approximately 350 million people living in the world today who are affected by it and it is the leading cause for a visit to see a GP or doctor. Depression also has a stigma attached to it that people who suffer from it are weak which leads to them not seeking treatment - less than half of all of the people with depression are currently engaging in any kind of treatment for it. Long-lasting and moderate or severe depression can be a serious health condition. It can cause an affected person to suffer terribly, leading to problems with work, breakdowns in close relationships and lead to poor physical health.
The worst cases of depression can lead to a sufferer taking his or her own life. An estimated 1 million people worldwide every year commit suicide because of depression. Half of all the people who die by suicide have major depressive disorder.
The World Health Organization have reported that by the year 2020, depression will be the second biggest cause of premature death in the world, heart disease will be the only illness or disease that causes more.
What Causes Depression?
There are many different causes of depression. It has many different triggers and there are multiple reasons it can develop.
Personal Factors are known to trigger depression. Those who have a tendency to worry a lot, have low self-esteem, are sensitive to personal criticism, are severely overweight, perfectionists, or those with a self-critical and a negative mindset all have a higher risk of developing the condition.    
Depression has been known to run in families and some people will be at an increased hereditary or genetic risk. This does not mean that a person will automatically experience depression if a parent or close relative has had the illness though. Life circumstances and other personal factors are still likely to have an important influence.
Having a serious medical illness can trigger depression in two ways. Serious illnesses can bring about depression directly, or can contribute to depression through associated stress and worry, especially if it involves long-term management of the illness and/or chronic pain.
Drug and alcohol use can both lead to and result from depression. Many people with depression also have drug and alcohol problems.

Symptoms of Depression
Signs and symptoms of depression include:
  • Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
    A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation.
  • Loss of interest in daily activities.
    No interest in former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure.
  • Appetite or weight changes.
    Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month.
  • Sleep changes.
    Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping.
  • Anger or irritability.
    Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves.
  • Loss of energy.
    Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete.
  • Self-loathing.
    Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes.
  • Reckless behavior.
    You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports.
  • Concentration problems.
    Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things.
  • Unexplained aches and pains.
    An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

How is Depression Treated?
The most common form of treatment for depression is the use of Antidepressant medication. Nobody can say for sure at this moment why antidepressants can alter a persons mood, because nobody knows for certain exactly how AD medication works. It is only thought that by increasing or decreasing certain chemicals in the brain, such as serotonin, that this has an effect on the brains neurotransmitters.
Currently, 10% of all Americans over 12 years old take antidepressants daily, and among females in their 40’s and 50’s, that figure increases to 25%. Approximately 254 million prescriptions were written for them in America in 2010, resulting in nearly $10 billion in costs. This figure is also expected to have risen dramatically in the following years.
However, antidepressants do not cure depression, they only lessen the symptoms for a minority of people who take them. A recent report published in The Journal of the American Medical Association stated that the drugs work best for very severe cases of depression, but have little or no benefit over a placebo in less serious cases. It is extremely difficult to put an exact figure on the percentage of people who experience decreased depressive symptoms as a result of AD medication, as reports and results vary wildly depending on the people in the study and their severity of depression, and whether a study is done by an independent body or by a pharmaceutical company. It is thought though, that the overall “success” rate of the drugs is approximately 36% - slightly higher than that of a placebo.
Antidepressants are also known to have side effects for the majority of people who take them. Patients will usually experience one or multiple of the following; nausea, increased appetite and weight gain, loss of sexual desire and/or other sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction and decreased orgasm, fatigue and drowsiness, insomnia, dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation, dizziness, agitation, irritability, anxiety, and increased risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior - especially during the first month of treatment.
Antidepressants come with no guarantee that they will work, on any level of success.
Further treatment options include counselling, psychotherapy or talk therapy. This has a much higher success rate than antidepressants overall, but again the figures at hand vary wildly. The cost of seeing a councillor, therapist or psychiatrist is also very high - the average is around $150-$200 for a 60 minute session. It is not unusual for these professionals to charge upwards of $500 for an hours’ session though - and the sessions usually need to be on a regular weekly basis to have maximum chance of success. It is thought though, that because has a higher rate of success than antidepressants, that it is more cost-effective as a result. Again though, there are no guarantees of success.
Other treatment Options
It is interesting to note, that many health professionals believe there are much better ways to treat depression. Irving Kirsch, the Associate Director of the Program in Placebo Studies and a lecturer in medicine at the Harvard Medical School is quoted as saying; “Depression is a serious problem, but drugs are not the answer. In the long run, psychotherapy is both cheaper and more effective, even for very serious levels of depression. Physical exercise and self-help books based on CBT can also be useful, either alone or in combination.”
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) has a much higher success rate than medication. Studies have shown it decreases severity of depression in most patients who maintain a CBT course, with many patients reporting they never relapsed into depression. CBT based self-help books sees an even larger percentage of success rates and numbers of people reporting to be cured, with very little cost involved - so why is this form of treatment not more widely used?.
It seems the answer is quite simple - there is nowhere near as much money to be made from curing depression as there is from helping people live with it. There is little money to be made from a healthy person, or indeed a dead person - however in sick people there is billions of dollars to be made.
Due to the pharmaceutical and medical industry's wide-reaching influence and the money involved, and due to health professionals who deal with depression and other illnesses being afraid of offering a treatment which may upset those powerful companies, very few are willing to publicize findings that depression can indeed be treated naturally, safely, extremely cheaply and in just a few weeks. One of these few researchers who dares to go against the current trend is James Gordon, a UK-based researcher and former depression sufferer, who is doing a lot of work to try to make these findings available to the general public. He is the creator of the "Destroy Depression System™", a simple, 7 step guide to self-curing depression naturally using an amalgamation of all the research done in the area, together with his own self-experimentation with which he cured his own depression.

If you’re prone to having anxiety attacks, never walk on the street by yourself. If it is possible, always drag along a friend or a family member to accompany you whenever you’re out on the busy streets. This way, you won’t be alone when the attack comes in the most unexpected place and time. In fact, this is also one way to stop anxiety attacks because you feel safe and secured knowing that you are not alone.
