How to stop Everyday Generalized Anxiety Disorder? (EGAD!)

A range of challenging feelings such as worry, concern and apprehension often accompany the day to day of our lives.  At home, in school, the office … just about everywhere.  In today’s stimulating, fast paced world, anxiety can be quite contagious. Daily headlines and disturbing images can put us in a state of false alarm.  When dealing with feelings of worry, it is easy to get stuck in the past or the uncertainty of the future.

When fretful feelings dominate the home environment, children will most likely mirror fretful, nervous or insecure behaviors.  The path to enhancing a sense of reassurance and calm is the solution – and does not necessarily require medication.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a condition in which one feels overtly anxious throughout the day and\or night. People with GAD may startle easily, and often have difficulty focusing as well as relaxing. Functioning on a heightened sense of alert on a regular and routine basis causes emotional and physical fatigue and varied health related ailments.

PAIH Family health experts can help you and your child to develop new, healthier habits.

Learning how to differentiate between real and imagined fears requires a kind of re-conditioning and redirecting of one’s perceptions.  If you or your child are feeling overwhelmed, chances are you may be suffering unnecessarily – and we can provide immediate relief, support and help.
