What is Anxiety?
There are many types of anxiety disorders.
Some of them include Panic Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder.
It’s born in every person on this earth. You can’t get away from it and you can’t cover it up. The “fight or flight” response we have allows the body to take over when there is danger.
Have you ever noticed when a sudden noise startles you, your heart rate races, you can feel your blood moving, and you just turn and stand there looking at the object that made the noise?
In that very instant, your brain takes over with the “flight or fight” response and assess the situation.
It realizes there is no danger, so it lets you move. It only takes a second, but in that second your brain took over your entire body.
It also started the release of adrenaline in your body.
Once the fear is over and the brain lets your body go, it also stops more adrenaline from being released.
But it’s not an instant stop; it takes a few minutes to stop the flow of adrenaline.
Had your brain assessed the noise as a real danger, it would pump more adrenaline into your body.
However, it didn’t. The threat wasn’t real and so your brain released you to go about your business.
