The role of the acute anxiety response is to keep you safe by increasing levels of awareness and producing fight, flight or freeze reactions. Your body is programmed to respond to any threats you perceive 'with immediate effect'.
Whether the response takes the form of a full-blown panic attack or chronic worry, sustained anxiety begins to limit the potential of the individual.
However, with an always anxious mind, you will find yourself feeling frightened or worried, even when there is no apparent threat.
Fear is a survival tactic which has been with us for 150 million years, although fear cannot be cured, Anxiety can.
