The Misconceptions of a Worrywart
nxiety is one of those terms we hear about, and perhaps experience, more and more these days.
Living in an on-the-go, high demand society can certainly create an element of urgency in our daily lives. Most of us have many hats to wear and maintain. We have our career life, family life, social life, self-care life - staying on top of it all can be overwhelming! It’s not surprising many people take on the additional role of “Worrywart”!
Interestingly, many of these chronic worriers will have reasons for holding onto and justifying their worries. Here a few of the common worrying misconceptions:
1. “Worrying helps my mind prepare for the day ahead”
Having a good lifestyle with regular sleep, exercise, and social support, plus a good diet with whole foods, lots of fruits and vegetables, & low processed/refined foods can be helpful for managing anxiety and worrying - in addition to understanding some of these mind traps!
However, if you are starting to experience symptoms that are difficult to control and excessive on most days of the week, your Naturopathic Doctor may want to run some tests to see if a hormonal or nutritional cause may be triggering the worries & anxieties. These other symptoms may include: restlessness, fatigue, moodiness, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, or muscular pain. If these symptoms are interfering with your ability to function in life, please see a health care provider for additional support!
