What is anxiety?
Anxiety is that feeling of worry or nervousness that we may experience when we feel pressure or resistance around some aspect of our lives. Anxiety makes us feel overwhelmed and in a state of stress. For others it may be even more extreme and experienced every day as an anxiety disorder or linked with depression. There are a variety of anxiety symptoms and circumstances — all of which can be addressed and minimized with the right approach. For example, during the upcoming holiday season many people will feel some form of social anxiety with the pressures of socializing and meeting new people, or at family events. Anxiety is that feeling of panic that gets in the way of us really relaxing and enjoying our down time. The truth is, any type of stress or anxiety are indications that we are out of balance.
