Anxiety from stress is usually caused by thoughts of the future and fear of the unknown. “What will I do?”, “What is going to happen?” “What if …” “Stress and anxiety can negatively affect us in many ways, and may lead to physical symptoms, social inhibitions, loss of confidence, feelings of panic, addiction, and problems at home or on the job” warns Dr. Susan Pazak a Licensed Psychologist in Southern California.
Problems can be chronic, mildly persistent, flare up, and become more severe. When left unaddressed, problems may last for years. Feelings of anxiety are a sign that life is out of balance, with a negative impact on mind, body, and spirit. Balance in our life, awareness of our feelings, and utilization of coping skills, creates freedom to reach goals and live a healthy and happy life!
