EVERYONE gets anxious at times because we are living in a fast-paced demanding society especially in the Western countries. Some people will bite their nails, play with their hair or even pull their hair out a little at a time. Some will feel the odd panic attack, or have digestive problems and even some people get the feeling they can't swallow properly and have difficulty eating or taking medication in the form of pills. It can also come in the form of Anorexia or Bulemia. Insomnia is another sign of stress. Medications for anxiety can often leave the person with "dry mouth" that fuzzy feeling in the back of their throat or feeling like there is a lump in their throat and even may gag on occasion while eating (the larynx is lazy and built similar to a slinky toy, it's not pushing the food down properly.) If someone is under stress they could get dry mouth, their tongue could be coated from too much acid in their system, giving that "furry feeling" (from worrying) suffer heartburn, stomach disorders or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (there really is no such thing as IBS, but the doctors have to call it something.) People can have problems with their colon, or even have "racing heart" or "skipped heart beats". It's best to see a doctor and get a diagnosis. Usually it's due to stress. Exercise is excellent for reducing stress such as Yoga, Tai Chi or working out at a gym. More and more spas are popping up all over in order to strive to "peace within the body, mind and spirit." If you can afford to go to one do so. If you can't you can do it at home. Yanni has some beautiful music as well as many nature sound tapes you can buy or download off the web. Take time out, fill the bath tub and add those bubbles and put candles around (be careful though.) Sit back, put that music on and relax. Don't answer the phone, the door and take some time out for yourself. Get out and get active! Even a brisk walk every day is good. You may think by walking to work, or walking around work you are getting enough exercise, but it's the mind-set that counts so a peaceful brisk walk through a park, forest or by a river, stream or a walk on the beach is better. Women especially can build up too much yeast in their system and Yogurt is excellent for balancing the PH level in our bodies. I have Yogurt (with fruit) 3 times a day. I take Tai Chi, have brisk walks with my dogs no matter what the weather and do exercises. I take 2 hours in the evening of "time out" and yes, I'm super busy, but THAT'S MY TIME! My friends know me well and unless it's an emergency "don't bother me during this time."
