What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a common human emotion, often serving as a beneficial motivator in various situations. While it can be challenging, it's important to remember that these emotions also reflect a heightened sense of awareness.

With the right guidance and support, you can learn to channel this energy in positive ways. By discovering the incredible resilience that often comes hand in hand with the anxious mind.

Anxiety can be beneficial when alerting us to potential risks or encouraging us to complete tasks. However, when excessive stress and worry become excessive or persistent, it can develop into a challenging disorder.
