Don’t let ANXIETY become relentless

Each one of us has experienced anxiety at some point or the other- before an examination or an interview, whether one locked the door to the house before leaving or not, while getting ready for a date, and many such instances. Most of this anxiousness is anticipatory, where one dreads the future without any reason or logic.

Anxiety is one of our primal instincts to avoid threats. It actually helps us perform well, respond to threats or even protect us from harm. Hence, mild occasional anxiety doesn’t need to be fixed, as it is a part of normal neurological functioning. However, in chronic cases, it is essential to identify and work on coping with anxiety as it can cause one to be agitated, fearful, and constantly on the edge. If left unaddressed, it would soon begin to impact one’s daily activities, health, job performance, and even relationships.

People mistake anxiety as “normal” or a byproduct of “stress” and often people are not even aware that they have an anxiety disorder.

What are the common signs of Anxiety?

1. Physical & Mental Fatigue

The eyes tend to feel heavy and tired all the time. Sleep also gets impacted, as people suffering from anxiety are unable to fall into a deep sleep and are mostly restless throughout the night with a fear of impending doom. This in turn impacts the next day and so on and so forth.

2. Agitation, Overdramatic Outbursts& Anger

There is a perpetual irritation towards people and situations without any reason. The mind is constantly whirring. This further may lead to a rapid heartbeat, shaking or sweating, and dry mouth. There is also intense & sudden fury where one tends to lash out even at the smallest of things. Research shows that men are more prone to reacting to anxiety triggers with anger.

3. Difficulty in Focusing/Concentrating

A person with anxiety may spend hours looking at the computer to come up with the ideal design/concept/any other work and at times even experiences short-term memory difficulties. This is more like a brain fog situation where one lacks sharp focus and is mostly unable to think clearly.

4. Social Avoidance

In some cases, a person suffering from intense anxiety is prone to cancel plans at the last minute. There is an underlying fear of being judged/humiliated socially.

5. Soreness in Muscles

Tense temples, aching legs, headaches, clenching muscles, sore jaw, etc. are common symptoms of anxiety.

6. Ceaseless Criticism

Most people with anxiety cover up their anxious thoughts by constantly criticizing themselves or others. Everything appears more difficult to them and in some way, they find it soothing to blame and criticize themselves and others – it gives them a feeling of more control.

7. Excessive Alcohol/ Coffee intake

A lot of anxious people love to mask their stress and anxiousness with multiple cups of coffee. Some even take to alcohol as it lowers their inhibitions apparently.

8. Hypervigilance

Relentless anxiety causes the brain and body to be constantly on high alert – constantly thinking of what can go wrong. This impacts the interaction and relationship with others. In extreme cases, it leads to paranoia.

9. Irrational Fears

Anxiety causes extreme fears also known as phobias. These could be situational phobias (fear of flying, fear of heights, fear of elevator, etc.), animal phobias, agoraphobia (fear of closed spaces or open spaces or public transportation or crowd, etc.), natural environment phobias, and many others. These phobias interfere with one’s ability to live a normal life.

10. Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are debilitating as they are mostly unexpected and induce intense overwhelming fear accompanied by shortness of breath, sweating, tightness in the chest, nausea, and fear of losing control or dying. These can be a major issue if they occur frequently.

How to cope with Anxiety?

1. Psychotherapy

It enables to the target of the negative beliefs that cause anxiety. Restructuring of the brain through cognitive changes results in a reduction in anxiety. Success through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is quite prominent wherein the expert helps to explore, analyze & challenge the irrational & negative beliefs behind the triggers and gradually replace them with reasonable and positive ones.

2. Mindfulness& Meditation

It enables one to be reflective and not reactive. Mindfulness is the art of ‘being present’ – being aware of thoughts, sensations, bodily states, and what we see, hear, taste, smell or feel around us. By being present in ‘the now, one can manage the fears and worries more effectively. There are a lot of mindfulness activities one can practice such as Mindful Breathing, Body Scan Meditation, Mindful Walking, Doodling/Coloring, Journaling, Guided Meditation, etc.

3. Physical Exercises

Physical activity releases endorphins that reduce the perception of pain and help in better sleep and release anxiety. Hence, discomfort is minimized.

4. Mindful Healthy Eating

Balanced nutritive meals help in coping with anxiety. Seek guidance from a nutritionist for structured plans & monitored results.

5. Deep Breathing

Deep breathing and other breathing exercises help in calming and coping with anxiety. Make them a part of your daily activities.

6. Medication

The medicines prescribed by the psychiatrist may help mitigate anxiety but the results aren’t long-term. In addition to this, the medication has side effects – nausea, dizziness, vomiting, etc. Also, once dependent on these drugs, one is unable to get off them and soon the results begin to wear off and doses are increased. Alternative therapies are preferable as they are more beneficial in the long term.
A person suffering from anxiety is not looking for attention; he/she is looking for compassion & reassurance. So if you know someone who needs help, reach out to them and let them know that you are there for them. And if you are one of those who is experiencing intense anxiety, please know that you are not alone!

We care! Feel free to reach out if you like.

This will ensure that you cope well and also learn the techniques and strategies to effectively manage anxiety and allow it to be minimal such that it aids in your growth instead of being the reason for your ill health.

We changed their lives and here they send us reasons to smile !
Priceless words of honour.

I have known Dr Chandni for only 6 months. Yet today I consider her part of my family and my being. When I met her, I was exhausted with life and with myself. Not only did her session uplift & transform my physical body but I was grounded like I havent been in 8 years. Highly knowledgeable, able to answer your deepest questions, full of light and exuberance, I havent seen any energy healing so significant and long lasting. Im privileged to receive wellness from her and I know that Im never alone. My association with her is for life and her specialness is above the heavens for me.

Ms. Rosy Singh
Corporate Trainer, Delhi

I was part of the session with Dr. Chandni Tugnait and so many friends asked me about my experience. The following analogy reflects some parts of the experience -The best of Buddhas disciple gave their quantifiable findings but when it came to Andanda, his closest one, he had tears in his eyes and responded in a single sentence – “I don’t know”.Buddha responded emotively, you have me in you. One has to experience it to believe in the healing process in totality.
Thanks a lot for your contribution Chandni

More power to her, she is changing the life of many people with her holistic healing techniques and helping in removing limiting beliefs of people and unleashing the power within them to get healthy and successful life.

Anketaa Sachdev

At times i wonder where does she keep it all. Such compassion – non judgmental, ever accessible, invaluable. It’s got to be a fountain within her that flows incessantly for the wary soul. No matter what your wound is, the magical waters of this fountain can cure all. And it was magic that got me to this fountain. For I had neither met her nor known her, at-least not in this lifetime! The first time i spoke to her, her compassion cut through my dense energy.

It was indeed a great honor for me to be trained by Ms. Chandni on my first visit to India. Not only did she teach us techniques on improving our proficiency in the English Language but also helped us to be able to communicate effectively with people from different cultures. The sessions with Ms. Chandni are always fun & informative. Even after hours of training with her, there is no sign of tiredness or lethargy. I extend my gratitude to you for teaching us how to be BETTER THAN THE BEST!!

Every teacher educates but only a few enlighten and Chandni ma’am is one of them. Besides having outstanding teaching methods, she is also very skilful and enthusiastic. And the best part is she never settles for what she and her students have accomplished. I owe a lot to her in terms of motivation, enlightenment and most importantly for making me a good human being. Her words of motivation “YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE BEST” always are a major source of ENCOURAGEMENT..

Ms. Chandni is a fine young lady who simply touched my heart during my visit to India. Although she is my daughter’s age but the ease with which she handled our group of 40 odd people from different countries and different cultures, left me spellbound. English was never a problem for me but this young girl, who I proudly call my teacher, taught me some very interesting things. I wish you the best of luck in everything that you do. Smile as often as you can. May the Lord bless you!

Not only am I more confident and happy now but also more capable of helping others by healing different issues in their lives. Thanks for always being there to guide me.

I’m really glad I attended the Serenity Surrender Basic Workshop with Chandni Ma’am. I’ll be indebted to you all my life for showing me the path of self empowerment. I had put myself in the gentle and capable hands of my guide and mentor ‘Chandni Tugnait Sharma’ and found that my opinion of myself, and my beliefs in the cycles of karma changed forever. The sessions and workshops have helped me develop my full potential, unlock hidden talents, and create more compassion and love for myself and others. Love You Ma’am.

I shall be eternally grateful to my sister-in-law for helping me uncover the fantastic laws of Universe and exposing me to the world of great mysticity and grandeur. Nothing seems impossible for me now. I get all that I desire and much more. One workshop changed so much for me. I, now, truly believe that nothing is unachievable in this abundant Universe.
