At its core anxiety is a healthy fear reaction and serves the valuable purpose of keeping us safe from actual harm. Anxiety makes itself known when there is a danger or a potential threat in your environment. At these times, your sympathetic nervous system is triggered and your brain makes the split-second decision to respond by staying confronting the danger or running for your life.
But for many of us, the anxiety sensors seem to be set too sensitive causing our internal responses to be triggered when there is really isn’t any need: no danger or potential threat. But when you’re having an anxious reaction, it is so difficult to discern if the danger is truly worthy of the anxiety.
In other words, ANXIETY can make innocuous circumstances seem like actual dangerous ones.
Left alone anxiety takes root. It grows and engulfs the healthy vibrant self. It infuses all our interactions with fear. Without treatment, we start experiencing things first through a lens of fear.
Anxiety is treatable.
You can learn to manage your anxiety and free yourself from its stranglehold.
Start living your life fully without the limitations that anxiety places on your everyday. Anticipate socializing and living with a calm optimism. Stop worry and dread in its tracks.
You can develop and function through a new perspective – one where you move forward free from the bonds of anxiety.
