Do you feel tense when dodging in and out of heavy traffic? How about rushing to an important appointment, or even just meeting someone for the first time?
Similar moments can promote stress and anxiety, helping us to concentrate and guarding us from being physically or emotionally hurt.
The mind usually resets to a normal state once the event passes by.
Anxiety becomes a problem when worries about future events are persistent. Even to the extent that the mind finds it difficult to focus on the “here and now”.
