When we are in physical pain, we are encouraged to see a doctor. Likewise, if we are feeling anxious, we shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to a sympathetic ear, or better yet, to a trained professional. A doctor will be able to diagnose anxiety, panic disorders, post-traumatic stress, and severe phobias. Don’t dismiss anxiety or take it for granted if you are suffering from it. Anxiety can progress to more serious mental health issues if left untreated. A doctor may prescribe therapy sessions and even medication to help a patient cope with their mental health issues. Likewise, insomnia and other sleep disturbances should also be addressed, not only because they may be linked to anxiety, but because it can greatly affect your physical health. Work on cultivating good sleep hygiene and take good care of both your physical and mental health.
