Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. While stress and anxious feelings can be a reasonable response to a situation where we feel under pressure. These sensations usually vanish once the stressful situation has passed or we have become acclimatized to it.
Everyone feels anxious from time to time. When anxious feelings remain without any particular reason or make it hard to cope with daily life it may be the sign of an anxiety condition. Mindfulness of thought dynamics helps manage anxiety and the sooner people with anxiety work on self-development, the more likely they are to recover.
Why is this important?
The philosopher Soren Kierkegaard described anxiety or dread associated with the “dizziness of freedom” and suggested the possibility for a positive resolution of anxiety through the self-conscious exercise of responsibility and choosing.
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. On average, one in four people – one in three women and one in ﬁve men – will experience anxiety at some stage in their life. In a 12-month period, over two million Australians experience anxiety.
