Imagine what life would be like without anxiety. Would you do things differently?
If you got help with anxiety would you:

- Fly in a plane or go back to school to complete your degree?
- Drive on the highway so you can take road trips?
- Say yes to that party at your friends’ house? Or to a work gathering?
- Go to a store instead of ordering everything online?
- Have some peace of mind?
- Fall asleep easier and wake up without fear?
Anxiety can be healthy and normal. It’s a motivator and is our body’s way to remind us we need to pay attention. If we are anxious about something we may try harder to be prepared. Anxiety can be a helpful tool for our success and survival.
But sometimes anxiety stops being helpful and starts to run the show. It becomes so powerful anxious feelings are overvalued and evidence that might contradict worry thoughts is ignored. Naturally, the tendency is to avoid the things that feel unpleasant yet once the avoidance cycle starts anxiety has the upper hand.
Anxiety can be a helpful signal and enhance your life, but it is a problem when it begins to rule decisions. Get help with anxiety so you can stop responding to fears and worries in ways that end up making it worse.
