Anxiety

Most of us worry from time to time. Life can be quite challenging and stressful, which makes this worse. When stress and worry are chronic, we call this anxiety.

Anxiety is best understood as fear-without-a- present- object. When we’re afraid of something present and real, like a bear, the biological fear response makes sense to us, and we use the biological arousal of the fight or flight response to cope with the real and present danger. In contrast, when we feel anxiety, there is no real and present threat and thus there is nothing obvious for us to do with our biological arousal. Most people try to avoid what makes them anxious; unfortunately this tends to make things worse over time.

Most people feel some anxiety from time to time, but for many, anxiety can become debilitating. Anxiety is the common feature of phobias, panic attacks,and post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as a host of other psychological problems.

Common physical symptoms of anxiety are sped up heart beat, increased sweating, tension in the abdomen and shoulders, and more shallow and rapid breathing. Extreme anxiety is called panic. Some people are afflicted with panic attacks.
