ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
Anxiety and depression are long-term psychological conditions that interfere with your daily life. Whenever we encounter challenges and problems like paying bills, taking a test, making a difficult decision, it is normal to worry every now and then. But when you or someone you know experience stress, trauma, frustration, regret over a long period of time, there is a possibility to develop these disorders.
Anxiety and depression develop out of the brain’s capacity to change (neuroplasticity) and the prolonged exposure to such unfavourable circumstances.
For example, a dyslexic child does not fully understand what is written on the board, takes times to copy down notes and misses a lot of things from the teacher’s discussion. He/she may find it difficult to catch up and would get low grades in exams.
For a child who’s as potentially intelligent as the rest of the class, poor academic performance can be very frustrating. If this persists into adulthood, they might think they are not good enough and would start to fear failures. He/she might not want to go to school anymore.
And as adults age, we can also feel helpless thinking that nobody cares for them, nobody likes them because they cannot do anything right, or that no one likes them thinking they will never be good enough could lead to isolation and depression.
Situations can really escalate eventually if not quickly if you will not do something today. Know more about the types of disorders, the signs, and the impacts of anxiety and depression. Also, discover more about on how the Australian Tomatis® Method can help below.
