Anxiety Help by Cher- Defining Anxiety

What is anxiety?
Anxiety can be a normal "alarm system" alerting you to danger. Imagine coming home and finding a burglar in your home.
Your heart beats faster. Your palms get sweaty. Your mind races.
In a situation like this, anxiety can be helpful. It can add an extra boost to help you get out of danger.
Under more normal but busy times, it can give you energy to help you get things done. But sometimes anxiety may get out of control, giving you an overwhelming sense of dread and fear for no apparent reason.
This kind of anxiety can disrupt your life.
Are there different types of anxiety?
Yes. Anxiety can be a general feeling of worry, an attack of feeling panicky,
a fear of a certain situation or a response to a traumatic experience.

What is generalized anxiety?
Generalized anxiety disorder is ongoing worry or fear that isn’t related to a particular event or situation, or is way out of proportion to what you would expect - for instance, constantly worrying about the health of a child who is perfectly healthy. Symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder include muscle tension, trembling, shortness of breath, fast heartbeat, dry mouth, dizziness, nausea, irritability, loss of sleep and not being able to concentrate.

Moving from one home to another can be a time of stress for anyone. Even the best of us, who are organized, methodical and just plain got it all together will be stressed by a move.
I am speaking first hand, as I have recently moved. The biggest stress was finding a place to move to. Whether you are renting are looking for a new house to buy its a difficult time. It's hard to find a place that fits into your budget and does what every home needs to....fits your needs.
Then comes the packing, the actual moving and the unpacking. This all takes time, and takes a toll on a persons stress level.

A few things to keep in mind when going through a move are :
Remember, that your friends can be your biggest source of help at a time like this. Good friends will either help you pack, move , unpack or just be there for you when you need to relax, or talk.

When you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, sit down, take a break , and do one thing at a time.

Packing up one room then the next is a good way to keep from being overwhelmed. Once in a room work on that one until it is done, then move onto the next.

If you have kids, depending on their age of course, get them to pack their own things, and it will give them a feeling of being involved and take some weight off of your shoulders. Also get them to unpack their rooms, as they all love to find a place to put their precious things.

Lastly, remember to breath, deep breathing breaks throughout the day will help you relax and be more able to cope with all of it!

A Move can be rough, but handling with ease can be done!
