Anxiety can wreak havoc on your body mentally, physically and emotionally. If you Google anxiety you will see the usual symptoms people associate with the condition such as, heart palpitations, nausea, feeling of impending doom. But not many people correlate these symptoms with anxiety.
Anxiety is vital for our survival as it warns us that we're in potential danger that may require a fight, flight or freeze response. In dangerous circumstances anxiety can help us, however, when we have those horrible "what if" moments frequently that's when it becomes a disorder. Crazy to think we have this amazing superpower that can protect us yet also be our Achilles heel at the same time.
