Treatment of your anxiety disorder by Psychologist Amsterdam
Anxiety has a signal function and is a reaction of your body to prepare itself in dangerous situations. Your heart rate and breathing goes faster, your blood pressure goes up and your muscles tighten: your body is ready for action. There are three reactions to anxiety: fighting, running and freezing.
Does fear hinder your life?
In theory anxiety is a useful mechanism – it only becomes a problem if the anxiety mechanism is set too sharp for a long time and the alarm goes off faster than necessary or goes off in situations in which the average person is not afraid. You are already on the alert if you only think of potentially dangerous situations and that is very difficult. An anxiety disorder is more than being annoyed by something from time to time. An anxiety disorder hinders your life.
