Anxiety is a normal reaction to danger, it is the body’s automatic fight-or-flight response that is triggered when you feel threatened, under pressure, or facing a stressful situation.
Our brains are programmed to believe that impending doom is around every corner; this is due to an evolutionary trait that helped ancient humans survive. In moderation, anxiety isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can help you to stay alert and focused, spur you to action, and motivate you to solve problems.
But when anxiety is constant or overwhelming, when it interferes with your relationships or daily activities—you’ve likely crossed the line from normal anxiety into the territory of an anxiety disorder. In today’s world, mere inconveniences are triggering the same primal “threat warnings” that are manifesting into anxiety disorders.
Despite their different forms, all anxiety disorders illicit an intense fear or worry out of proportion to the situation.
If anxiety affects you regularly and impacts your daily activities, MindLab Life Coaching provides a wide range of treatments, including medicine-alternative solutions such as neural rewiring and non-invasive brain chemical modification.
