Anxiety and Confusion: Overcoming Confusion States in Anxiety and Panic

Himanshu Dani

Anxiety/Panic has a peculiar characteristic.

That is, it produces confusion.

The confusion is mainly about

  • Your surrounding
  • Your bodily sensations &
  • The weird feelings you get during those moments


With continued suffering of panic attacks or intense anxiety, it appears that anxiety and confusion are tied together for the worse.

If you personify anxiety or panic as a devil you can say that it intimidates you every now and then.

It threatens you with fainting and humiliation in public, heart attack like feeling, fear of craziness, fear of death, etc.

These are the thoughts and feelings that capture your mind. The result of this is often that you are not that much into your normal senses.

That is because anxiety consumes your mental energy. This can result in confusion or lack of attentiveness in your routine life.

It is a state of high arousal which makes your nervous system highly active for considerable periods of time.

This can temporarily affect the normal functioning of your brains like the clarity of thought and perception. This may lead to states of confusion.

But remember this confusion is not due to any brain defect or a brain tumor.

If you have checked with a medical professional and he has assured you that there are no such conditions, you can assume that it is due to anxiety.

Anxiety and Confusion are always coexistent”

Himanshu Dani

Anxiety causes an imbalance in your life whereby all of the mental worries creates a top–heavy sensation. All of your focus is moved from the center of your body to the head. Schools of meditation often like to demonstrate various forms of visualization method for ending anxious distress. They often propose the fact that our body often loses balance it is under stress for a longer time.

Here’s how it goes: A demonstration to give you an idea of what it is

A student is asked to come to the front of the group and stand with his legs apart. The teacher then asks the student to focus on a personal worry or concern. Once the student is fixated on the worry‚ the teacher quietly moves to the side of the student and tells him he is going to attempt to push him over. The teacher pushes on the student’s shoulder and is able to topple the student with relative ease.

The same student is then asked to forget the worry and focus his attention on a grounding visualization. The teacher once again attempts to topple the student but finds much more resistance than previously. The student is grounded firmly in place.

The class is given this demonstration to display how important it is to feel grounded and centered in the present and not continuously caught in mental activity.

When we are caught in anxieties‚ fears and phobias a person can feel disconnected from life as they go through life on autopilot.

Himanshu Dani


 

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) affects over 4 million adult Americans every year. This is a condition where the person feels extremely worried or anxious on a regular basis.

Exaggerated feelings of worry or anxiety are normal in some situations, but for people who have generalized anxiety disorder or related conditions, the feelings are out of proportion with the situation at hand.

People with generalized anxiety disorder are unable to stop worrying about everyday events and situations and may become overly concerned with money, work, school, health or their families.

They spend their days in constant worry or anxiety over certain situations, and they often end up feeling worn out, depressed, sad, and cannot enjoy relationships or social activities.
