What is anxiety?

 

 

 

 

Anxiety is disordered fear.

Like unfitness (physical imbalance) is the disorder of fitness (physical balance), anxiety is the disorder of fear.

Fear is a natural and highly necessary, emotion. If a person has the predisposition to suffer from anxiety, fear can misfire and when it does, it can generate thoughts, phobias, obsessions and a variety of physical symptoms effecting every system of the body. This is referred to as fear disorder, or anxiety.

The most common manifestations of anxiety are digestive issues, laboured or unusual breathing and heart palpitations, but because the hormone adrenalin reaches every part of the body and mind, symptoms can appear at any time, anywhere and make the sufferer feel very scared and unwell.

However, anxiety is not mental illness. It is simply a maladjusted emotional response.
