Anxiety can be one of the hardest things a person will ever have to deal with in their lifetime. If you have ever known person with tremendous anxiety, or have a loved one who suffers from an anxiety disorder, or even you yourself struggle with managing day-to-day anxiety, then you know just how awful and debilitating it can be. Every person on this planet has fears and worries, it is only natural, but sometimes these fears and worries can overwhelm us and take control of our behaviors and thoughts. There are many factors that can contribute to anxiety including: trauma, drugs, alcohol, chemical sensitivities, and numerous others that I will not list for the sake of brevity.
Relaxation and stress reduction are key to managing an anxiety problem. Anxiety disorders are one of the most common occurring disorders of the mind and body, and are recognized as the pathological counterpart of normal fear. It manifests itself through disturbances of mood, way of thinking, and both behavioral and physiological activities, which as you can imagine have great potential to hurt your overall wellbeing.
