Anxiety can be a debilitating psychological state to be in. A person experiencing anxiety might feel muscle weakness, heart palpitations, tension and fatigue. Other common symptoms can be nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath stomach aches and headaches.

What is the reason for the development of these symptoms? What causes this reaction? Anxiety is associated with worry about the future. As one person described it, anxiety is a “future-oriented mood state in which one is ready or prepared to attempt to cope with upcoming negative events.” The way anxiety is differentiated from fear is that anxiety focuses more on the future, and fear is focused on the present. In most cases it is normal to feel anxiety. Anxiety is the normal, physical reaction to stress. But when the reaction becomes an overreaction, and becomes debilitating, then a person can be said to be suffering from an anxiety disorder.

There is more to anxiety than the physical reactions. The emotions can become involved as well. People that are experiencing anxiety describe themselves as feeling dread, tension, jumpiness, mind going blank and other uncomfortable, fear-based emotions. Sometimes a person experiencing anxiety overreacts to a real pain, such as a headache believing that this could be a sign of a tumor, stroke or aneurism, and can’t stop thinking about it. Anxiety can cause a person to obsess on a negative thought and not be able to get it out of their mind.

Different types of anxiety.

August 29th, 2010

Anxiety comes in many forms and types. Some of the more common types of anxiety disorders are test and performance anxiety, stranger and social anxiety, trait anxiety, decision or choice anxiety and paradoxical anxiety.

Let’s investigate test anxiety. This is a type of anxiety many people have suffered from, since so many of us have gone through school systems or entrance exams for which we have felt uncertainty about the outcome.  If a student is not confident he has mastered the material, or is afraid he may have forgotten something he will need to know for the test, or thinks that maybe he has studied the wrong material or not enough he might feel uneasy or anxious about taking the test.  This can be compounded by the connection a person might feel between his own personal worth and the grades he achieves. Bad grades equals bad person. Test anxiety is similar to performance anxiety, since they are both basically evaluations of ability and can be associated with self-worth.

An interesting and less understood form of anxiety is known as paradoxical anxiety.  This type of anxiety is exhibited when methods and techniques which are usually used successfully to reduce anxiety, actually cause greater anxiety.  This can happen with techniques like relaxation or meditation and even medications used to relieve anxiety. This phenomenon is discussed in the religious literature of Buddhists which places a significant emphasis on meditation, relaxation and turning inward. The literature describes people that become more agitated rather than less during meditation, and they explain that this happens naturally and recommend that this should be “mindfully explored” so that the person can “gain insight into the nature of emotion, and more profoundly, the nature of self.”

Then talk to the coaches of the breath of last generation, use and benefits and their characteristics. Coaches of breathing second generation born in the U.S. following a series of scientific studies conducted by several universities on the effects of breathing training devices, for example: “Clinical Applications of Inspiratory Muscle Training” by Dr. Allison McConnell in March 1992, or “influential” Robin Hood for the lungs? A respiratory metaboreflex That ‘Steals’ blood flow from locomotor muscles, “Dr. Douglas R. Seals, department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology, University of Colorado at Boulder, 2001). As a result of these studies found that the most effective train the muscles involved in breathing was through breathing coaches, in fact, the mere use of these muscles during any sports training (for intense it is) is not sufficient for training, only the use but not training.

Also found that training was really effective inspiratory muscle (see “Robin Hood for the lungs.”), As opposed to what was done so far with training almost exclusively of the expiratory muscles. Some of them trained both actions in the same breath, that besides the training and inspiratory muscle training of expiration is also vital in areas such as performing arts, with the wind players and singers for example. Use and benefits: These coaches work by training for strength, like a dumbbell, but for the muscles involved in breathing. The training consists of long breaths and exhalations through the device, each user with a resistance level appropriate to their state. Designed for the areas of sport, performing arts (especially wind players and singers), and several health conditions, but may find benefit from its use practically anyone. Its effects more – User-friendly universal controller for training at various levels of resistance from low to intense. So the consumer has no need of buying different power for different levels of resistance or for specific markets (eg, just sports, just music).

In one product some of them supply all these needs (not). – Nozzle Ergonomic silicone fully professional high quality and durability. – Free pharmaceutical products. – Some come with a box designed to maintain both health and to carry the product in bags, sports bags, tool bags, etc.
