I often say that anxiety has different painful tastes and flavors.

This fear poses in front of you in different life situations. Many of those situations are simply unavoidable. That is the reason we need to be able to control anxiety in these situations.

Anxiety Neurosis: causes, symptoms and prevention

Himanshu Dani

Anxiety neurosis is the classic term for anxiety disorders. It denotes the mental disturbance caused in the sufferer’s life because of negative and unrealistic thinking.  It is “a state where excessive stress or inability to cope with stress causes mental exhaustion.” Anxiety neurosis affects millions of people worldwide. Some people experience only in acute form while others develop full anxiety disorders. The chances of developing Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or panic attacks depends on the intensity of neurosis( negative and illogical thinking) and the time period for which a person suffers neurosis.

However, the term neurosis is used sparingly now because it sounds vague and does not represent any real disorder.

Born in 1975 in the Himalayan border regions between Tibet and Nepal, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a much-loved and accomplished meditation master. From a young age, Rinpoche was drawn to a life of contemplation. He spent many years of his childhood in strict retreat. At the age of seventeen, he was invited to be a teacher at his monastery’s three-year retreat center, a position rarely held by such a young lama. He also completed the traditional Buddhist training in philosophy and psychology, before founding a monastic college at his home monastery in north India. From: Tergar community website.

Himanshu Dani

Calming down during a panic attack is really a tough job. Every panic attack sufferer recovering from anxiety has the experience that the harder she tries to calm down more intense the panic becomes. Suppressing panic attack symptoms or trying to avoid them intensifies them and pushes you further towards extreme anxiety. 

But no worries!

Now you can manage your panic attacks better because some unorthodox strategies can help you calm down fast. These anxiety recovery states can be achieved fast with smart work and less negative thinking.
