Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety Disorders

I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal - and soon they'll forget my number. ~Edith Armstrong

The 20th century has been aptly described an age of anxiety. Many people nowadays suffer from mental stress and tension. High blood pressure is the result of mental tension. If we are indifferent toward getting rid of hypertension or high blood pressure, this might lead to several serious diseases like heart failure and kidney failure.

Is it not better

to keep smiling? If we are always afflicted with anxiety and sorrow, we will soon suffer from high blood pressure. The plain truth is that we should change our life style so that we get inner happiness. Pushed to extremes, our morose and negative thinking will certainly result in complete ruin of our health.

It will be

very useful to remember that at times due to anxiety and mental strain many persons begin to use drugs that turns their life into bleak future and despondency.

The famous English writers like S. T. Coleridge and Thomas De Quincey due to anxiety started taking opium to get peace of mind. This spoiled their health. Thomas De Quincey was so much perplexed with his addiction to opium that he wrote a long essay ”Confessions of an English Opium-eater.” He very aptly remarks: “The elevation of spirits produced by opium is necessarily followed by a proportionate depression, and that the natural and even immediate consequence of opium is torpor and stagnation, animal and mental.” The essay points out the pain and unhappiness of Quincey due to his addiction of this vice of taking opium.
