Anxiety and Depression are two common emotional struggles that many people face. They can limit your ability to take care of your life, shift your thoughts to negative loops, and get in the way of feeling joy. Anxiety and depression can be tiring or agitating, and it is always hard to live with.
Anxiety, in its natural form, serves to protect us, letting us know there might be a problem afoot. But when it becomes overwhelming, it can lead to excessive fears and worries that disrupt our daily lives. Depression, often experienced as an enduring sadness and a loss of interest in things we once enjoyed, can make life feel heavy and difficult. Sometimes, these feelings of anxiety and depression come together, making it all the more challenging.
There is a lot of discussion about the genesis of anxiety and depression symptoms – genetic or biological illness, responsive to life stresses, or a history of trauma? Each person may answer this question differently. Whatever the triggering circumstance, both anxiety and depression have very known patterns of thought, physical sensation, and emotions. This commonality oddly creates opportunities for us to learn how to tend to the symptoms effectively.
