Anxiety disorders are becoming increasingly common. To understand correctly, we all experience a level of anxiety, we're human, this is part of our alert system and is appropriate during times where we're threatened and require our fight or flight system to kick in and save our lives.
However, the trouble now is, because of our crazy busy often toxic lifestyles, our alert system never switches off, and we often live very stressful lives terrorised daily by the media, social media, work, bills, relationships, being a parent and the list goes on...
In short, your alert system never switches off and as a result you're flooded with hormones and natural body chemicals you just don't always need.
And so you get an anxiety disorder...
