Anxiety, an all too familiar word in today’s society. Over 40 million adults suffer from some form of anxiety disorder, leaving it to rank as the number one diagnosed mental illness. Anxiety comes in many forms and sizes and not one of us is immune.
Everyone has come face to face with anxiety at some level, whether it is taking a test, interviewing for a new job, or seeing flashing red lights behind you on the highway. Fortunately in those moments the anxiety is brief, our bodies react with a burst of adrenalin, maybe we get a little shaky and have a dry mouth but soon after all is back to normal and the internal alarm system has been turned off.
