Understanding Anxiety

Understanding AnxietyAnxiety is a low-level fear response. It can be generalized — we often or even most of the time feel a little bit uneasy, even without a specific reason. We begin to think that feeling anxious is normal. We can get so used to the feeling of generalized anxiety that we don’t remember what it’s like to feel calm and relaxed.

The feeling of anxiety can also be triggered by something specific, such as remembering something unpleasant when we see a color, or smell something that reminds us of that first event. Sometimes a situation, such as taking a test or going someplace new, can trigger an anxious feeling.
