Anxiety and dealing with attacks
Anxiety is a gift from nature because it aids survival — none of us would live long if anxiety didn't stop us from taking foolhardy risks! But, like anything else, excessive anxiety can be problematic and become as disabling as any chronic physical illness.

Excessive fears and worry, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behaviours and post-traumatic stress reactions are all forms of out of control anxiety. If you suffer from one of these conditions, or if your days are blighted by continual low-grade anxiety, it can feel as if life your will never be normal again, as if something alien is in control of you.
There are three elements to anxiety
  • the physical sensations you experience;
  • the emotions you have while experiencing them
  • and the thoughts that go through your mind at the time.

But anxiety is not something all-powerful and inexplicable. It can be managed very easily, when you know how.

If you or someone you know suffers from high levels of anxiety, there are many things that people can do to help themselves and further information on managing anxiety can be found in the HG Publication Understanding Anxiety and Managing it Without drugs, available from human givens publications at the Human Givens website.
