Human beings are a combination of spirit and flesh. Spirit is the heavenly gift and is deemed as eternal, whereas flesh and body are mortal. The body is controlled by the brain as the remote control of all the happenings of the body.

Anxiety is considered as an emotion, feeling of resistance towards everything, worried and troubled thoughts about anything happening in life. People with anxiety tend to be more rigid about their daily life. There are two kinds of anxiety, one could be a normal
kind of anxiety and other is actually a mental illness. Normal anxiety is characterized as raised heartbeat, sweating and increased sensitivity to surroundings. Anxiety in daily life could be due to the crucial issues of an individual’s life. Whenever a person feels he or she is in danger, he will try to escape that situation or get scared of that particular event. “Fight or flight response” also occur in anxiety as a person thinks that their situation is a threat to them and the brain releases a different kind of hormones.
Chemical reactions happening at that moment to his body is anxiety. The rush of adrenalin in the brain triggers anxiety and causes the “fight or flight” response. Anxieties mostly occur due to work tension, family issues, money shortage, family and other problems.

How to deal with Anxiety:

Exercise daily is a great consideration for dealing with anxiety. When your body works aligned with your brain, this keeps it fresh and helps in maintaining the health of body and brain. In order to be peaceful about mind-boggling stuff, you need to first make peace with yourself by controlling your emotions. It is substantial to be the master of your emotions, to control your thought process. Figure out what is creating chaos in your mind and leading you to anxiety, challenge yourself and get control over that so you don’t feel anxiety over that thing next time. Try to be optimistic about your current
situation and repel negativity as much as you can. Surrounding yourself with the people who bring positivity in your life is very important. If you isolate yourself and put yourself in a situation, where no one could bring you out from the isolated hole of you, you will be the one who suffers in the end. Anxiety, depression takes your life, you over think about trivial stuff in your life, things which should not matter suddenly matters to you. Always make friends as they are there for you in your saddest times and struggling times and be a helping hand in most dire times. One way of keeping yourself apart from anxiety is also to volunteer somewhere and help poor people. Sometimes all individual needs are soul refreshment and refinement and no better way of doing this is but volunteering. Go to the internet and search for social work, social work keeps you connected with the world and you are exposed to many new things you didn’t even know exists. You get to know stories of people’s troublesome lives and their bigger and tragic experiences, makes you realize how small your issues are. It brings you closer to reality and in one way it brings peace to your brain. Sometimes doctors also prescribe medication for anxiety, benzodiazepines such as valium provides relief from all the tension in the mind and many people take it without prescription, which is very wrong.

Anxiety is a disorder which can be cured by seeking help from others or by controlling your emotions. Psychiatrists are available for people who have severe anxiety disorders. People tend to avoid the threatening situation and that is where they lack the most and their anxiety gets worse. It is very important to get to know the root cause of your anxiety and then working on it to get rid of it. People mostly get into depression due to anxiety and they don’t understand how harmful it is. Depression then leads to suicide and ultimately people do this too.
