Gary Gilles, LCPC says “Just hearing the word anxiety is almost enough to make you start worrying about something. But, the truth is, everyone experiences some degree of anxiety.”
With the amount of external noise, expectations, numerous failures and endless possibilities, it is extremely difficult to be still and calm. Oftentimes, individuals function in default mode or auto pilot state. At times, we find ourselves experiencing anxiety without any valid reason. Many of us experience a constant state of alertness with that eerie feeling of danger or that something bad will happen. Technically, anxiety is defined as feeling nervous, a state of worry or unease usually about an imminent event or occurrence without uncertain result.
