Stress: The Silent Killer

I used to struggle with anxiety..... Then i found ways to make more money and now I sleep like a baby.

No Tm millionaire when I say that, I'm not saying I sleep on a bed of money and I'm rich because I'm not. I'm fully srs though.

If you don't have money worries then what issue do you really have if you've got your health? Nothing you can't sort relatively easy is the answer.

Guarantee that's why the majority of people are stressed if you look at the root cause of whatever they're worrying about. Solve that and you remove the motivation to sit and worry about it....

Or you go distract yourself. Either/or.....
But Mo money, mo problems?!
Agree with @doink on the environment thing

My old job drove my anxiety massively high
Since leaving I've felt like a different person
Got diagnosed with several anxiety disorders and I disagree mate. Went through all the treatment, CBT etc none of which were any use whatsoever. Tried medication and didn't feel it was worth a wank....

It's an environmental thing to me, Imo it's the same with a lot of mental health. You as an individual have to take responsible for how you feel and make the effort to change your behaviour, change your environment and thus gain control of the problem..... Grown men shouldn't be copping out and saying " oh I have to feel this way as my brain tells me ".... They need to be proactive in making and finding their solutions and alleviating the stress.

Not the liberal opinion, people will contest this but I've got an array of mental health issues I've successfully battled in various ways and I'm the happiest I've been, we'll ever.... So the proof is in the pudding. Don't talk about it much as why would I but I've experienced it and I know how I came out on top....

Do something about it, remove the root issue of your anxieties and master your own emotions is my advice....

Great response and attitude to ride with, but it's not a choice we have, you don't choose to have anxiety it chooses you. Anxiety and worrying are not the same, all the logic in the world won't keep my heart from hammering in my chest. Even the simplest of tasks can be overwhelming at times. You can't just stop worrying. There is no 'on' or 'off' switch. My experience @doink..It's being attacked by something I can't escape from. Believe or not I feel on top of the world right now. No matter how irrational I may come across, it's real to me.
Stress definitely has strong links to anxiety.

Seen loads suffer in my business. Sharing Neil's post with my colleague next to me before she has a breakdown.

A dont give a shit attitude and the gym have helped me.
I got all the same symptoms. Used to indulge them as well, make yourself the victim of the big nasty anxiety....

It's your mind, your body..... You control it. You're in charge. It's a fight or flight response, you KNOW As a grown man it's illogical..... So why indulge it? Laugh at it.... Laugh at yourself. Shake your head and think about something else.

The way you ' feel ' is a choice believe it or not, you can indulge it or you can control it.... Telling yourself that you can't is exactly why you continue to struggle with it. It's like the depressed folk who sit and complain about their depression and wallow in self pity yet do nothing about it. Nothing to change their circumstances, nothing to alter their environment, behaviour or thought patterns. Effectively they're depressing themselves and complaining about it....

It baffles me how everybody wants to be some unfortunate victim of their own mindset.....

I'm on that battle field mate. No fucker in the world has control over me and myself. They try dam fucking hard too. I'm just recovering from my wife having an affair. Just throwing that in as I was pre diagnosed with depression with anxiety. So, now I have to deal with a whole fucking mix of emotions on top. I have never quit, give up on myself and I still train and hit the iron hard. This so called illness will not beat me. I'm just sharing what the illness is. Hopefully it will help others to turn their back on the disease and take control of it. I'm on your wave length on this...Take control and don't let it control you.
My better half suffers really badly with anxiety, around a month ago they upped her dose of setraline and tbh it's worked wonders.

Still hard to live with at times but it's my choice and she's open enough that we can deal with it.

It's a horrible thing, wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
