Anxiety can be physically, emotionally, and psychologically draining. Our minds and bodies are hard-wired, from an evolutionary perspective, to make us feel anxious when there is a danger or threat nearby. Anxiety is a key emotion necessary for our survival. In terms of an evolutionary perspective, our ancestors were glad they had anxiety so that their fight-or-flight system would get activated and help them run for safety when a tiger was coming after them. Fortunately, today we don’t have as many loose tigers roaming the streets. Yet, our minds and bodies still react in a similar ways to non-life threatening sources (work deadlines, relationship troubles, etc).
