What is anxiety and how do you deal with it?

Asked by nina (895points) July 22nd, 2008

In the answer to the question about BOREDOM I mentioned the Boredom-Engagement-Anxiety continuum. Anxiety is a whole separate topic. Your thoughts, Collective, please!!!!

Anxiety is worry-producing thoughts in excess of what a situation warrants or constantly worrying about things past, present, and future.

Mild cases can be helped by practicing some retraining of your inner dialogue. More serious cases of anxiety disorder probably require work with a therapist. In some extreme cases, medication may be required.

Exercising will help with anxiety; takes your focus off what’s worrying you. Get your heart rate going! It will make you happier.
