Generalized Anxiety (GAD)
What is Generalized Anxiety?
Do you find that you spend a lot of time overthinking and worrying about the same things in your life over and over, so much that you start worrying that you are worrying so much?
Worrying is normal and we all do it from time to time. It is future focused and generally starts with a ‘what if….’ question. Worrying aims to help you to solve problems in the future tense. Normal worry results in us taking an action and we no longer need to dwell on the problem.
Excessive worrying however is persistent, distressing and feels uncontrollable. It takes up a lot of space in your brain and keeps us feeling anxious and on edge. This can be exhausting and it can ultimately prevent you from engaging fully and wholeheartedly in the things in life that matter to you the most.
When your anxiety is generalized you will notice that there are certain things that you worry about in your life repeatedly, such as finances, relationships, your performance at work and so on. You might notice that you catastrophize about the these situations, imagining over and over again the worst possible outcomes.
