Nine of Candles (Anxiety)

Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress and danger. Symptoms of anxiety include elevated heart rate, sweating, nervousness, feelings of dread, rapid breathing, and trembling. In a dangerous situation this Fight or Flight response is meant to help you survive by boosting adrenaline to run away or defend yourself. A person with anxiety can enter Fight or Flight mode when there is no danger.Types of anxiety include: Panic Disorder (repeated/unexpected panic attacks), Agoraphobia (fear of situations where you may feel trapped), Social Anxiety Disorder (fear of being embarrassed or evaluated by others), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (uncontrollable worry about day to day things). Accepting that you feel anxiety in the moment rather than trying to fight it is a good way to start rewiring your brain and controlling your mind.
