Anxiety is a normal reaction to many different kinds of situations and events that happen in life. It’s our body’s “fight or flight” response to stressful situations, alerting us to danger and preparing our body to fight back. A healthy amount of anxiety is actually a good thing – it can help us be motivated to complete a project or can keep us safe.
Sometimes, anxiety can be disruptive to everyday life. There are quite a few ways you can learn to help manage your anxiety that help your brain and body return to their normal states. Check out our blog post with four breathwork patterns for anxiety and another that shares three simple ways to reduce anxiety. Sometimes reducing anxiety takes a bit more work than this. If that’s the case, you may be dealing with an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety is a problem when it becomes unmanageable or overwhelming. This means that your body’s stress signals are not turning off at the appropriate times, sending fight or flight signals to your body when none are needed. Some signs that you may be experiencing an anxiety disorder include:
Child anxiety and teen anxiety can show up in the form of separation anxiety, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, and OCD.
