I came across this article last week and have many great discussions about it both personally and professionally. Anxiety is all about fear and thus is a very difficult thing to have to deal with on a regular basis. Of course there are times when anxiety is absolutely needed and it keeps you safe. However, in anxiety disorders our brains/bodies go through the anxiety response when there is no threat in the environment. One of the first defenses to breaking the cycle of anxiety is to work to understand it. The more we know about it, the more we can fight against it in meaningful, effective ways. So no matter if you suffer from anxiety or someone you know has anxiety, this article is worth the read to start breaking the cycle.
