Anxiety is a natural phenomenon that has been with us for eons and has ultimately culminated in our ability to survive. Anxiety/fear motivates us to behave in certain ways, which generally is to move ourselves out of harms way. Historically, anxiety was provoked by real life threatening stimuli (e.g., saber-toothed tiger), however in today’s society we are now experiencing anxiety to non-life threatening stimuli (e.g., giving a presentation, interpersonal conflict etc). The long term effects of anxiety on our mental and physical health are well documented and it is important to seek support if you feel that anxiety is preventing you from living the life you want.
