Anxiety is associated with a wide range of emotions, ranging from alertness to feeling persistent worry and a lack of energy. Physical symptoms and racing thoughts can interfere with our sleep and reduce our ability to connect with others. Anxiety can be contextual and stress-induced or unrelated to any particular event. While a basic fight-or-flight response is an appropriate reaction to emergency situations, exposure to chronic stress has negative effects on the brain and body. Stress triggers the release of cortisol and adrenaline, two hormones that in excess worsen anxiety and cause a cascade of reactions that negatively affect the body’s immune system and mental functioning. An overworked immune system will no longer provide proper protection against inflammation in the body.
