Why Your Body Reacts to Non-Existent Threats

Anxiety is a complex emotional and physical response to perceived threats, often rooted in past trauma. It manifests when individuals try to exert control over uncertain future events. At its core, anxiety stems from a sense of powerlessness, leading to a physical reaction characterized by shaking, sweating, and a rush of adrenaline.

This adrenaline surge is a natural response meant to prepare the body to face a threat, providing the strength needed to confront danger. However, in cases of anxiety, there is no actual immediate threat. The body is tricked into this state of readiness, resulting in the uncomfortable symptoms of a panic attack. Essentially, anxiety is the mind's way of preparing for a non-existent threat, causing a mismatch between physical reactions and reality.
