Anti-Anxiety Training (Introduction)

Anxiety may be psychiatric or medical. Sport-related anxiety may have a psychiatric or medical basis.

Clarifying the cause of anxiety is important in determining the best approach to dealing with it.


What We’re Talking About

Symptoms of anxiety may include the feeling of being on edge, irritable, nervous, or agitated.

Fear, worry, distress, and/or apprehension are often present.

Physical manifestations include muscle tension, trembling, restlessness, shortness of breath, hyperventilation, dizziness, lip tingling, palpitations, rapid heart rate, sweating, dry mouth, trouble swallowing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, hot flushes, frequent small-volume urination, difficulty sleeping, and weight loss or gain.

Anxiety takes energy. Waste too much energy with anxiety and you may be overly fatigued later.
