Anxiety & Depression The Dark Knight's
We all have good days and bad - some you will feel on top of the world and others well they are not even worth mentioning.
The times when the dark knight aka anxiety/depression creep into your world are the worst times.
In today's modern world things can boil and bubble up inside of you due to the constant stresses and environmental changes in your life.
Often people develop new habitual responses to the situations they are presented and that's where the dark knights are weighing heavy on your shoulders.
They are un-wanted feelings and sensations that shake you to your core and can make you believe you are going insane.
You may notice that the world today is very fast paced and sometimes hectic with constant worry and uncertainty rearing their heads from time to time.
You may be anxious/depressed due to:
- Financial worries
- A break up or divorce
- Social situations
- Job prospects/interviews
- Family feuds
- Going outside
There are a whole host of reasons for a persons anxiety/depression condition and they will be unique to the individual due to the mind and body forming habits it feels are appropriate to the specific situation/stimulus/environment.
Our bodies are marvelously wonderful creations and are ever so complex, we still don't know (even with all the modern technology) every detail about the body and mind.
Danger provokes our bodies natural instincts and causes specific responses as it believes these will best help you deal with the situation and is an appropriate response to what is happening.
I am sure you have heard of the fight or flight response?
This is where the body goes into high alert mode allowing you to deal with danger or to escape from it.
As cavemen and women we were highly adapted to fighting for life or food and also running away or escaping from danger in the form of predators.
We still have the fight or flight response today as it is a deeply ingrained mechanism or tool for you to use in times of danger.
Your body is doing its best to deal with all the hectic happenings of day to day life and can often go into overdrive even when you don't want it to as you have formed this habit through time.
Knowing this is a good thing as it tells us we can re-teach ourselves new habits and reduce our responses to specific events and reset the system to a more normalized state of being.
We can ward off the dark knights and feel a state of health and well-being.
It's not easily done and you do have to put in time and effort to see lasting changes.
If you are looking for a magic pill here then I am sorry to say I don't have it but I do have natural ways in which you can start your journey back to wellness and restore happiness to your life.
On the subject of pills - a lot of doctors are quite happy to prescribe medication for you and your condition but these can sometimes make you feel twice worse and the side effects can far outweigh benefits.
It is a good idea to go to your doctor and have a check up & blood test just for more clarity that there is nothing else wrong.
I am not a doctor with multiple qualifications but I do have the vital experience and have logged years with the dark knights and battled anxiety & depression eventually finding methods that would restore the happiness and wellbeing back to my system.
I have struggled through it all so you don't have to go on for years and years you can do something today NOW!
Don't deprive yourself of the enriching life you were mean to live.
I have written books that will give practical advice that you can implement into your daily life that will ward of the knights.
