Though anxiety is normal in today’s generation, it needs to be addressed, because it can disrupt the day-to-day life of an individual. Anxiety can be crippling if you don’t learn to control the attacks. For example the former One Direction singer, Zayn Malik, who had to cancel his solo performance in Dubai.
When Zayn Malik cancelled his Dubai performance last week, he blamed crippling anxiety attacks which the singer said left him feeling unable to face an audience. When a person suffers from an anxiety disorder, it can sometimes lead to them avoiding certain situations because they fear it may be a trigger.
The singer also released a message to his fans in which he said, “I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances. I felt like I am making progress, but today I have acknowledged that I don’t have the sufficient confidence to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October. I am truly sorry to disappoint you.”
Zayn Malik is not alone in making this kind of announcements. Selena Gomez announced that she too was cancelling an upcoming Dubai program, which was scheduled for November, citing anxiety and panic attacks brought on by lupus. It is a chronic autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s overactive immune system attacks healthy tissues and organs.
Other celebrity joining the bandwagon of anxiety sufferers include singer Ellie Golding, actresses Emma Stone and Amanda Seyfried.
The recent reports suggest that anxiety attack among young people is growing. According to the British charity YouthNet, a third of young women and one in 10 young men suffer from such attacks. Studies in America show a similar trend, a 2013 survey reported that 57 percent of female university students had experienced episodes of “overwhelming anxiety” in the previous 12 months.
It can be brought by social anxieties which are driven by social media pressures, relationship breakdowns, or fear of some kind of catastrophes. Anything that an individual perceives as either physically or psychologically threatening could trigger an anxiety attack – even if there is no real threat present.
Anyone suffering from anxiety will have their own triggers, but they all have an underlying theme – “most likely a fear of not being in control, failure, public ridicule, or death.”
Through the power of suggestion, Hypnotherapy aims your unconscious mind to promote positive changes in your life. As hypnotherapy has a clear role of a potent anti-anxiety agent, can help boost confidence and self-belief, while reducing feelings of fear and intense worry.
