Did you know that anxiety is designed to protect us? It’s a natural phenomenon that humans of all ages experience. When faced with a threat or problem, anxiety can help warn us and motivate us to do something about it. So, for example, when we’re anxious about a test, we prepare. When we’re anxious about getting our children to school, we leave early.
Anxiety can become unhealthy or problematic when it starts to cause significant distress and interferes with our everyday lives.
