Anxiety and Stress have had an unfair press. In fact, both anxiety and stress are natural parts of our flight or fright response. It's an emotional response of "fear," lingering on from early ancestral times, which was required to keep you constantly alert and focused on any surrounding threats to your survival.

So, although we don't face the same level of survival threats as our ancestors, it's left an imprint on the subconscious mind - almost like being 'hardwired' to the same survival instinct and so our mind does not always recognise a real threat from a perceived threat. This means that when you are faced with overwhelming emotions, it's a natural fear response making you feel miserable.

From time to time, we all experience some form of external stress, such as being stuck in a traffic jam, being late for work or trying to meet deadlines, and you can add your triggers to this list. In this type of stress, your symptoms ease off once the situation subsides.
For some people, stress can be a form of motivation to achieve and act for self-improvement.

However, prolonged stress can lead to:
- health problems
- high blood pressure
- bodyweight issues
- uncontrolled anger
- increased feeling of frustration.

Anxiety on the other hand is often "internal" with individuals expressing the feeling of dread, can't handle, what ifs, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, and fear. With external triggers, the situation is not threatening but your emotional reactions tend to persist even after the event has passed.

The common triggers of feelings of anxiety and prolonged stress include:
- isolation
- overeating or undereating
- substance abuse/alcohol
- lack interest in personal health
- seeking reassurance from others
- avoiding situations
- spending increased time on electronics/social media
- becoming control of others
and many other triggers.

Throughout our lifetime, we learn often through trial and error what actions to take to manage our day-to-day anxiety and stress triggers. The problem occurs when we get overwhelmed with these triggers or get bombarded with situations, that leave you feeling emotionally exhausted. This is where anxiety therapy can help.
