What is anxiety? It’s the feeling of nervousness, many describe it as butterflies in the stomach. Which we all feel from time to time in daily life in situations like when we have an exam coming up, or an interview.
If we imagine that exam going wrong or that interview not working out we feel anxious, this is a form of negative self-hypnosis. So what is anxiety? It is the resulting feeling we get from imagining a negative expectation that something fearful might happen in the future. Feelings like this usually dissipate once the situation passes or a positive outcome for that future situation is expected, a form of positive self-hypnosis. These feelings are natural and help us to prioritize and deal with stressful situations and circumstances in our lives in an appropriate and effective way.
