Are you Health Conscious or Health Anxious?
Almost every one of us gets concerned about our health and well-being. That is why we always try to eat right, sleep well, exercise properly and lead a good lifestyle. Being health conscious is great. It helps a lot in leading a healthy, happy, successful and meaningful life.
However, problem arises when this health consciousness gets transformed into “health anxiousness”. If you get too much obsessed about your health, if you get too much apprehensive that you are suffering from a severe illness (without the presence of such medical symptoms), then probably you are experiencing health anxiety. Technically it is termed as “hypochondria”. Etymologically, it is a somatic amplification disorder in which the person suffering from it gets overly anxious or obsessed over his/her physical conditions. They see even a minor problem as an exaggerated severe illness. People suffering from hypochondria often require continuous care, support and assurance from health service providers, family and acquaintances.
See if you recognize yourself in the symptoms of health anxiety:
