Why Are We Anxious?

It's said during the complex process of human evolution, we developed into highly functioning and thriving individuals who formed operational societies. As there was no authority to regulate law and order, humans were endowed with survival instincts. That is, to protect ourselves from dangers by identifying potential threats beforehand. Things were difficult then, and a lax and ignorant attitude could cost your life. Quickness and attention were necessary to assess problems effectively and find a proper solution. As a result, human brains developed a pessimistic attitude and became habitual in seeking out negative stimuli. These primitive responses accompany humans until today and do more harm than good. Our anxious response has evolved over millions of years. Though the dangers have significantly changed over time as bears no longer threaten human survival, our brain interprets family conflicts, looming deadlines, and being stuck in traffic as potential threats to our survival. Humans have advanced and evolved to a great level, but our abilities to comprehend life situations are still the same. For example, going late to an interview is indeed going to cause you some harm, but it is not life-threatening. However, human brains perceive it as a danger and give rise to automatic fight or flight responses such as dizziness, tension, dry mouth, gastrointestinal issues, or difficulty breathing. These automatic responses, in the long run, can have a profound impact on the overall health of an individual. Therefore, it is crucial to learn ways to relax naturally and gets relief from stress Anxiety or worry is caused by experiencing many fearful thoughts, which in turn activate this biological alarm system. Without realizing it, one develops a pattern of responding to situations in a threatening manner, consequently activating fight or flight inappropriately. If this pattern persists long enough, one constantly feels on edge and begins to believe that this feeling is normal, convincing oneself "that's just how I am." Schreiber-Pan, Heidi.
