There are many sources of anxiety that people deal with on a day to day basis. At times pressures from work, relationships or family can be overwhelming. Many people lack effective coping mechanisms. Dealing with the stressors effectively depends on addressing the sources of anxiety which can be either physiological, cognitive, or both.
Physiological components of anxiety often manifest as physical symptoms including increased heart rate, shortness of breath, sweating, clenching of the teeth, and even shaking in the limbs. Treatment of these involves relaxation training through the use of biofeedback or neurotraining, both of which have been found to have a significant positive impact.
Cognitive components frequently center around obsessive, racing thoughts that are often very difficult to let go. Studies consistently show that cognitive-behavioral therapy is effective in the treatment of the irrational thoughts that many people deal with on a daily basis. Simply put, it is necessary to dispute the irrational fears that we hold as truth.
