If you feel the need to constantly move, are unable to calm your mind, or are experiencing a combination of both, it’s likely you’re suffering from restlessness.
A recent survey of more than 2000 Brits found that 95% of participants said they were suffering from restlessness. Despite restlessness being a familiar sensation for many, for those suffering from anxiety, this can be a constant stream of agitation and can be difficult to pin down.
Restlessness is defined as the discomfort that arises when something prevents us from relaxing or making progress. Whether physical, social, or psychological, we feel restless when we’re not moving at the pace we’d like. Some suffer from cramps in their arms or legs whenever they’re not moving, also known as motor restlessness. Other people may experience difficulty accomplishing tasks, managing time, or falling asleep at night, referred to as mental restlessness.
Restlessness is one of the more commonly reported symptoms of anxiety. It can cause a person to feel fatigued, have trouble concentrating or feel as though their mind is ‘going blank’. Furthermore, it can affect a person’s ability to function properly at work and detracts from overall well-being and can manifest itself in a variety of ways, some of the most common include hyperactivity, palpitations, agitation and insomnia.
Restlessness, like many other symptoms of anxiety, is a direct result of the flight or fight response being activated. When a person goes into fight or flight mode, their body receives huge surges of adrenaline, often referred to as ‘nature’s energy’, as a response to stress.
There are a number of reasons why you might be feeling restless. Most commonly it can be a symptom of anxiety and depression and experiencing these symptoms may cause you to withdraw from social contact, leaving you feeling exhausted and may result in you struggling to concentrate and perform at your best.
Restlessness isn’t something you need to live with, there are alternative treatments available through the use of a traditional herbal remedy with no problems such as sedation, addiction or interaction with other medications with benefits evident after just two weeks.
