Dealing all of your Psychological issues effectively

What is Anxiety ?

 Anxiety is the mind and body’s reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations. It’s the sense of uneasiness, distress, or dread you feel before a significant event.  A certain level of anxiety helps us stay alert and aware, but for those suffering from an anxiety disorder, it feels far from normal – it can be completely debilitating. Over the years, you might have struggled with feelings of intense worry or fear over what might happen. Whether it is the first day of college/office or talking to unknown people, the fearful thoughts might have troubled you and brought multiple sleepless nights.

It’s normal to feel anxious for major life-events but when this state becomes part of your personality and interferes with your daily functioning, it needs to be healed.

Experiencing anxiety is defined as a state of prolonged fear or arousal in response to a threat that is either ambiguous or unspecific. It is a reaction to the situation or context in which threats may take varied forms and predictions which further impacts your well-being. In such scenarios, anxiety needs to be conquered before it ruins your health and happiness.
