what is anxiety


“What is anxiety” It is a disorder that causes uneasiness, fright, apprehension, and worries. Also, anxiety can be well-defined as an emotion branded by a feeling of tension, troubled thoughts and bodily changes like increased blood pressure. Anxiety has been in existence with humans from creation, but age and time have differentiated the anxiety experienced by people.

At the beginning of time, the appearance of animals such as predators and other similar dangers triggered a body-alarm which is manifested in the form of increased heartbeats, sweating, and amplified sensitivity to environments.

A rush of adrenaline in response to dangers or threats caused these reactions. The adrenaline prepares human to physically confront or bolt any threats. Presently, running away from large beasts and looming danger is a less pressing concern. Anxiety now revolves around work, money, family, life, healthiness and other crucial issues that demand one’s attention.
