Many people experience feelings of anxiety before a big presentation or during times of stress. This is different from dealing with an anxiety disorder. If you deal with anxiety on a regular basis, there are many symptoms that can affect your everyday life. It can be hard to function when you’re dealing with anxiety, and you might find that you struggle to succeed. Sarah Blizzard, DNP, PMHNP, and Mandip Kaur, PMHNP, your psychiatric nurse practitioners at Excel Psychiatry in Windermere, FL, and serving Winter Garden, FL, can explain how you can manage your anxiety symptoms and find relief from the constant interference.
Managing Your Anxiety
Anxiety can be a difficult issue to deal with and you might find that you struggle to function normally each day. Your anxiety symptoms can hinder you from enjoying your life and participating in activities you once loved. Symptoms can include restlessness, ongoing sense of worry or fear, tension, increased heart rate, and gastrointestinal issues.
Managing anxiety looks different for everyone and our nurse practitioners can explain some methods to help manage your symptoms. You can make some lifestyle changes to help reduce the amount of stress in your life. This might mean getting regular exercise, not smoking or drinking alcohol, avoiding caffeine, eating a healthy diet, and getting plenty of sleep. This can often help improve your quality of life and reduce how often you deal with anxiety.
Our provider might also recommend certain medications to reduce your anxiety symptoms. Psychotherapy can also give you a safe space to discuss your anxiety and understand why you might be feeling a certain way.
