What is the difference between good terrifying and bad terrifying? Is it nervousness or is it anxiety?
We might even mistake excitement for anxiety. These feelings can be similar, but that can also be quite confusing. I am glad to have Nina K. Moore back to talk about anxiety and its many manifestations, and also how people can learn to better manage the anxiety that comes from having anxiety.
Imagine if we told people to walk off a broken foot instead of advising them to go to a doctor and getting their injury treated.
Many people may not acknowledge their difficulties with anxiety because their experience isn’t visible like a broken foot.
And for those who have anxiety, it can cause even greater anxiety about their anxiety because they may not look to be struggling from the outside.
I love talking with Nina K. Moore and I invited her back for another in depth talk about anxiety and its many expressions. She discusses some of her thoughts about the body’s physical response to anxiety, and how this knowledge can be yet another tool to help manage heightened feelings of anxiety.
Nina has started to record the different symptoms of anxiety that can span the alphabet from A-Z because so many people experience it in so many different ways. For example, under just the letter “S”, anxiety can manifest is some of these ways:
- Short fuse
- Shoulder pain
- Social Anxiety
- Speech, too fast or too slow
For Nina, how she uses her breath is important to her anxiety management, but she cautions that there is no singular “fix-all” for anxiety.
Nina hosts workshops and works with clients to help them develop a better relationship with their anxiety.
If you are interested in working with her, or in receiving some information on managing anxiety, please reach out to her on her website.
