( Edvard Munch Stress And Anxiety )
I wish to answer this from the point of view of C.G. Jung’s depth psychological method because in my experience, both individual and professional, this way of seeing into anxiety and anxiety provides not just deep insight into the problem, but also, profound healing.
What I imply by recovery is that you welcome and transcend the stress and anxiety and anxiety by knowingly working with them, rather than alleviate the symptoms with medication.
Let’s start with a quote from Jung, which might strike you as insensitive or arrogant without context, but I promise you, the quote is abundant in meaning and it comes from Jung’s own experience with anxiety and stress and anxiety:
The foundation of all mental illness is the hesitation to experience genuine suffering.
What he means by legitimate suffering is that stress and anxiety and anxiety are actually signs of a much deeper issue, a problem of the soul which has actually not been effectively metabolized, psychologically speaking.
( painting, Edward Munch, The Scream)
Now, the medical technique to anxiety and anxiety will say, “it’s a chemical imbalance” and the CBT technique will say, “it’s thought distortion”.
The medical method deals with the chemical imbalance with pharmacology.
Cognitive behavioral therapy, holding that the distorted beliefs or thoughts cause negative actions or feelings, works to alter those distorted patterns by reinforcing not-so-distorted patterns.
Mental suffering is not just a mental or chemical imbalance. To consider it in this way is to succumb to the misunderstanding of the mind/body split. We are entire beings. Whenever we suffer, that suffering expresses itself at every level. Anxiety and anxiety affects the entire individual: psycho-spiritually, physically, psychologically, and physiologically. The signs and symptoms of stress and anxiety and depression will manifest at every level. 
From the Jungian point of, the problem with anxiety or anxiety, as with any form of mental suffering, is that your entire life system is out of balance.
My experience with anxiety and anxiety
Whenever I discuss Jung’s psychology, I am not speaking as a Jungian, per se. I am speaking from my experience with his technique to life. I never ever state anything is so, even if Jung stated it was so.
I handled mental concerns for years of my life. I was one of those individuals who looked like I had it all together, but on the within, felt like I was falling apart.
I could easily indicate my childhood experiences and say, “this is why”, however that did nothing to change the reality that I experienced serious anxiety and anxiety.
Stress and anxiety and depression have an irrational aspect that will not yield to intellectualizing your issues, i.e., reducing your problems to “this is why” or “this is the cause”.
In order to get to that unreasonable element behind your anxiety and depression, you have to ask yourself some hard concerns.
Asking the Right Questions About Why You Suffer
( Painting, Edvard Munch, Separation )
In order to work with the illogical factor, you have to ask yourself not, what is the cause of my suffering, however rather, what is the function of my suffering?
Once again, I draw from Jung:
The sensible man … will ask himself: Who am I that all this should happen to me? To discover the response to this eventful concern he will look into his own heart.
What does it imply – to check out your heart and ask this fateful concern about the nature of the important things that have occurred to you?
Who am I that all this should occur to me?
It is not the same as falling into the ineffective, why me syndrome. Here’s another quote from Jung:
I am not what occurred to me. I am what I pick to become …
That is, what you pick to end up being REGARDLESS OF your suffering – or perhaps – due to the fact that of your suffering
Now this is a challenge due to the fact that a great deal of people don’t like who they are.
If that is you, it is just due to the fact that you do not see yourself clearly. Believe me, you’ll find something special in there, something valuable that has endured …
( Van Gough, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear 
You have to find a method to value yourself – love yourself even – and guy, is that hard to do for some of us.
You need to wade through a great deal of self-loathing in order to discover what is really precious in yourself. In some cases, it’s unconscious, other times, it’s best in our face.
For me personally, I needed to give up to some disgusting experiences in my life. There was no medication or thought-reprogramming that could change any of it.
I needed to ask myself that exact same eventful question that I encouraged you to ask yourself.
Who am I that all this should occur to me?
… and after that, dig actually deep to find my answers.
I have actually lost clients because they were just unable to make the transition from holding on to their suffering and sense of oppression to asking themselves what their suffering could indicate for their soul’s course.
If you can find a way to be available to those kinds of concerns, then currently your anxiety and depression begins to move.
Discover the Meaning in Your Suffering
( Painting, Edvard Munch, Melancholy  )
Finding meaning in your suffering – this is very difficult for a great deal of individuals. Again comes the concern:
Who am I that all this should take place to me?
Yes, I keep repeating it due to the fact that I desire you to hear it – truly hear it echoing from the depths of your soul.
As I said, the question of Jung’s has absolutely nothing to do with falling into states of self-indulgent pity. Self-indulgent pity is invalid suffering.
Do not read that incorrect. For a few of us, those states of self-indulgent pity belong to our procedure. Lots of people come from a past where empathy or compassion simply did not exist, so we need to discover it for ourselves, in ourselves.
But the key to not falling into it is consciousness Mindful suffering is the key. I juxtapose relating to your suffering and conscious suffering
The difference is this: I am depresse d or I am nervous(identification) and This is anxiety or this is stress and anxiety ( conscious suffering).
You see, by doing this you immediately different you from the state of anxiety or depression.
Mindful suffering is what Jung meant by legitimate suffering.
Anxiety, Anxiety, and Legitimate Suffering
Generally, if you say that you “suffer from anxiety and depression” and leave it there, then that would fall under the category of “hesitation to bear legitimate suffering.”
Once again, do not get me wrong. No doubt that you suffer, but it’s not from your stress and anxiety and anxiety. It’s that other thing that you won’t look at it: that underlying discomfort, humiliation, or rejection in your life.
Here’s a twist: your anxiety and anxiety are an effort at self-healing.
Just as a fever raises your body temperature level in order to kill an infection, so your psyche produces its own signs to eliminate a mental infection.
Going Inward: the Battle for Your Life
( Painting, Alexander Louis Leloir, Jacob Battling with the Angel)
In a personal letter, Jung as soon as wrote of his own anxiety
When the darkness grows denser, I would penetrate to its really core and ground, and would not rest till amidst the pain a light appeared to me, for in excessu affectus(in an excess of affect or enthusiasm) Nature reverses herself. I would turn in rage against myself and with the heat of my rage I would melt my lead. I would renounce whatever and participate in the lowest activities ought to my depression drive me to violence. I would battle with the dark angel up until he dislocated my hip. For he is also the light and the blue sky which he withholds from me.
This going inward begins with your state of mind: the sensation tone of the stress and anxiety or the depression itself.
Getting to the Core of Anxiety and Depression
( painting, Vincent van Gough, S orrowing Old Man (At Eternity’s Gate))
It may be handy here for me to share my own insight from dealing with the structure of anxiety and anxiety:
- Depression is a withdrawal of your important life force
- It steals your vigor by drawing your life force into your depths. It’s that darkness that you have to enter. That’s why you have no energy.
- Discover the location where that energy is saved, for instance, a lost or declined part of yourself.
- Give it your attention, even if that’s simply by looking at it.
- Eventually, you will gain access to your vigor once again.
- Stress and anxiety divides your life force such that it scatters and ends up being worthless for anything other than falling under worry and concern.
- There will be a center around which all of your worries and concerns circle.
- it’s not money, task, relationships – all of that is simply on the surface area
- Find out what that core fear is, for example, self-doubt or insignificance
Unsolved horror, rage, sorrow, or any other emotions that we brush aside or suppress– these are the locations we need to go in order to get to the roots of depression and anxiety. Once you discover yourself in the middle of those feelings, you then need to turn them completely, as Jung suggests below in his letter to a depressed pal. 
Relief, Remediation, and Recovery from Anxiety and Anxiety
( Vincent van Gough, Landscape with Wheat Sheaves and Increasing Moon)
What I have been speaking about throughout this post is psycho-dynamics. In essence, when our psychic energy streams outward, we cultivate and animate external life. When psychic energy flows inward, we cultivate and stimulate inner life.
Both worlds need our energy and attention. When we deprive either of their right to life, then we suffer the effects of that deprivation.
If depression takes your life force from the important things you love, then turn inward and look for where that life force is locked away, awaiting release. Tend to that lost place in yourself and it will launch that vitality back into your life.
If anxiety spreads your vital force into fear and concern, pull that energy into yourself. Sit with that stress up until it reveals the true nature of your discomfort. Once again, tend to that unsettled aspect of yourself and you will restore a sense of control in your life.
Pleased brand-new year and all the best …
