The experience of anxiety often consists of tension, nervousness, fear, apprehension and worry. When someone feels anxious, it can interfere with their capacity to deal with certain situations. When this experience continues, it can lead to panic attacks or develop into chronic anxiety. When someone has chronic anxiety, their default position is a feeling of general anxiety.
Anxiety is often unconsciously learned during childhood or conditioned during ones upbringing. This can occur through a single or repeated negative experience. If untreated, it can maximize stress (see “stress”), increase physical ailments, develop into chronic anxiety, lead to panic attacks and even lead to depression (see “depression”).
Anxiety can be a useful inbuilt mechanism designed to prevent us from engaging in potentially harmful situations, in times when the “fight or flight” response is actually needed. Also, some level of anxiety is sometimes necessary to increase our alertness for certain situations, such as exams, public speaking, or other important events. However, when someone feels that they can not regulate their anxious response or it becomes overwhelming, it disrupts the performance and becomes a problem in itself.
