1. WHY WE WORRY
– Stress Is a normal reaction
– Part of our natural survival strategy
– Channels energy to help us escape danger
– Chemicals released by our brain can help us feel nervous & make it hard to think more clearly
2. OUR RESPONSE
– immediate somatic reactions
– sometimes big events in our life can cause us to feel uncertain & worry about the future

unfortunately – for some, these feelings do not go away, even after the aniety-provoking event has passed [ professional help may be needed]
