It's more than just a mental state of mind

No matter how strong a person is, we all experience varying strains of anxiety in our lives. It's an uncomfortable sensation that in more serious cases can be extremely debilitating.

It usually manifests when a person has too much going on at the one time. The mind becomes muddled causing worry and unease - emotions that can also become physically evident.

Speaking on Dermot and Dave's Mind Yourself Now, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist Fiona Brennan explains this connection and how to recognise it;

what we've to remember is just how this works on a neurobiological level and when we know that we're in such a strong position

Fiona says this is "an evolutionary part of human beings and our bodies may react in a way we don't understand".

Warning signs include:

  • Tightness in the chest
  • Struggling to breathe
  • Sweating
  • Blushing
  • Headaches/Dizziness
  • Muscle tension
  • Digestive issues
  • Insomnia

She continues by explaining how Dr. Stephen Porges' Polyvagal Theory has revealed a "calmness lever" that people can activate to relieve these pressures. It's all to do with the vagus nerve and our gut feelings.
