  • Anxiety

    It’s natural at times for people to feel anxious, experience real fear or become frightened.
    In situations where we are actually in danger, fear is a healthy way of protecting ourselves.
    It alarms us to a threat and helps us to be able to react quickly.

    When we are anxious we worry about things in the future or things that might not even happen at all.

    Being fearful can also protect us: for example, from getting into a critical or dangerous situation in the first place.

    However being overly worried or frightened can also become a burden.

    It’s important to have a healthy level of anxiety and to not let your anxiety control you
