Relief from Anxiety and Stress in Glendale, CA
Managing the fight or flight response
Fight or flight is a natural, instinctive response, designed to keep us safe in dangerous situations. For example, when you’re facing a wolf or bear, this response can help save your life. For some people, this sensation is triggered in the absence of a threat, especially during awkward social situations. Though it’s extremely beneficial in times of danger, it’s not very helpful and can be downright uncomfortable in nonthreatening circumstances.

The Link Between Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety and stress go hand in hand. Stress is an emotional and physical response that keeps the mind alert and body prepared to act in difficult situations. Some stress is normal, small amounts can have a positive effect on one’s life. But too much or constant stress can be harmful. Without adequate rest to recover between stressful episodes, the risk of adverse emotional and physical effects is high.
Anxiety, on the other hand, is a mental reaction to stress. It manifests as a persistent or unrelenting sense of unease or worrying. Sometimes while trying to avoid stress, people develop anxiety from worrying more than necessary about things that may or may not be beyond their control. This creates a vicious cycle that can be incredibly difficult to overcome without the right guidance and support.
