Inspirational Anxiety Quotes: Read Quotes about Anxiety and Depression

The popular phrase ‘butterflies in the stomach’ is nothing but an anxiety attack and our anxiety quotes totally agree to that.

When the mind is not able to cope up with stress, the body gets a panic attack called anxiety. 

If it persists for a long time, it may turn into depression as well.

When you are deeply afraid of something or about the outcome of an event, anxiety happens. 

Our body then enters into a fight or flight mode. Why? In order to protect itself from any potential threat or danger.

As far it is limited to physical danger, anxiety is okay. But when it is converted into a psychological issue, you need to overcome anxiety as soon as possible.

It may even get out of control and enter the stage of anxiety disorder.

If you are an easy victim of panic, tension, and mental stress, our collection of depression and anxiety quotes is the need of the hour.

What triggers anxiety?

Any foreign life situations or something unknown is going to occur, that very thought sends ripples of uneasiness and panic signals to the body. 

It feels as if some losses may happen either to the body or to your personal image.

You may feel an irregular heartbeat, restlessness, sweating in the palm, not able to relax or calm down, unable to put the body to sleep, etc.

Remember, every person is unique and has different personalities. So you cannot pinpoint a general view and name that person is having an anxiety disorder.

The symptoms vary greatly as time and situation change. 

But it is very important to recognize the problem. Because the delay only worsens this overwhelming feeling of fear and apprehension and may turn into serious depression.

How to prevent or reduce anxiety?

If you look into our social anxiety quotes and quotes about depression and anxiety, one thing is common, anxiety is directly related to fear and stress.

Naming it as a mental health disorder won’t be of much help for the person to overcome anxiety and stress. 

You have to understand what is that person is fearful of and what trigged stress in his or her life.

Once you know the root cause of the issue, you can now find ways to reduce that particular fear and stress from the person’s life. 

Also, anxiety can attack anybody and any age group. Even children and the elderly can have the ability to develop anxiety and depression. 

One of an inspiring anxiety quote from Astrid Alauda, says ‘Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries.

How true isn’t her statement! Lets us solve our worries as soon it erupts and never allow the body to bear the brunt of it.

Anxiety can occur for various reasons. It could be social, relationship problems or anything very particular.

See, once you deeply understand that this very life we have is very short and always slipping by, then you will want to live a life that is free of stress and worry.

Whenever anxiety attacks you psychologically, pause and ask – What the worst it will do to me?  

Ask repeatedly to yourself, one precious life I have got, do I need to spend it in constant worry or unknown imagination of what may become of me in the future? 

The permanent solution lies not solely on medications or psychotherapy, but more of understanding what all things in life cause stress and fear in the first place. 

Get rid of that and you will find anxiety having a lesser and lesser impact in your life.
