Alexander Technique (AT) can help you manage anxiety. And in combination with various treatment options or alone, AT can help you reduce the scope and duration of mood collapses or anxiety attacks by giving you tools to guide your own thinking productively for self-care. You need to use all the tools at your disposal to combat anxiety effectively.
AT can help you do better under stress
Alexander Technique can teach you how to lower your own stress levels. You can use your AT skills to stop reacting to stressors with the self-defeating tensing and holding that give anxiety a lock on your spirit. AT can help you quiet your reactions and choose healthier behaviors, from moment to moment and over the long term.
Stop anxiety from undermining your health
Anxiety underlies 99% of alcoholics' drinking disorders, and research associates it with depressive disorder over 75% of the time. Unattended, anxiety can adversely affect the nervous system in micromolecular ways, increasing inflammation, amplifying pain and accelerating health problems, including high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and respiratory function.
Consult your doctor. Your physician may recommend anti-anxiety medication, talk therapy or other types of treatment. Addressing the underlying cause of unchecked anxiety can be critical, to prevent a cascade of negative symptoms from being unleashed.
Throughout the treatment process, AT can be an invaluable tool, on its own or n addition to medication and other clinical approaches, for managing anxiety and depression.
And AT has no adverse side effects - only benefits.
Let AT help you to engage fully in life
Life is full of stressors and avoiding them can cause us to needlessly withdraw from life. What matters is whether we react to stressors automatically, or if we respond to them mindfully.
AT can provide you with strategies you can use to respond to each potential stressor as a stimulus for learning and growth, and help you reclaim your wholeness and integrity.
So, when anxiety threatens to distort your perspective and disrupt your life, AT can make a real difference for the better.
