Like all emotions, worry and anxiety have positive purposes, at least in the right dose. Our anxiety warns us of dangers, signaling us for high risks, pushes us to perform at a high level, and motivates us to take protective measures and actions. Yet, excessive anxiety can be overwhelming, even paralyzing, while panic attacks can be terrifying and even traumatic.
Anxiety represents our body’s natural alarm system, signaling to us the possibility of danger. When this response arises too frequently or intensely and doesn’t match actual situations of danger, it can interfere with life and cause great distress. A high level of stress and anxiety can be debilitating. This is why when high levels of distress is experienced, it is important for people to be able to access strategies to reduce anxiety and manage it to minimize its negative effect.
