Anxiety and stress can affect each part our lives: work, relationships, social life, health, confidence and self-esteem. It can cause you to worry about what others think of you, doubt your own abilities, avoid situations, and bring about physical symptoms such as panic attacks, IBS, blushing, etc.
Why do we become anxious or stressed? In a real life or death emergency, the fight-or-flight response triggers the physical symptoms of anxiety, however this response can also be unnecessarily triggered in everyday situations (socializing, interviews, public speaking, playing sports, driving on motorways, phobias, etc.) when our anxiety levels are too high.
Stress management is important as stress is a fact of life for all of us and can come from financial and relationship difficulties, injury and health worries, family conflict, work and career disappointments. Learning to manage stress allows you to learn to relax your mind and body and begin to feel better about yourself so you can enjoy life from a more positive and optimistic perspective.
Confidence and self-belief are vital for you to live the life you want, enjoy positive relationships, achieve your goals and fulfil your potential. When anxiety and stress levels are too high, your confidence and self-belief can take a hit.
When your confidence is high you begin to see opportunities and possibilities for yourself with a ‘can-do’ attitude and can look forward with positive expectation in all areas of your life, relationships, career, social life, finances.
