Anxiety is a natural response to daily challenges and dangerous situations. The feeling of anxiety activates your brain, triggering the release of hormones that give you the energy and focus to deal with the challenge.

Your mind and body should relax after the anxiety-producing event ends. Your anxiety may be a problem when you:

• Have frequent or constant anxiety
• Have intense anxiety that disrupts your life
• Feel anxious without a current or anticipated challenge
• Change your daily activities to avoid anxiety
• Experience severe anxiety in response to a minor situation

These are all signs that your anxiety no longer serves a beneficial purpose. Instead, your brain stays on alert, causing overwhelming anxiety that will only improve with help from the PMA Assessment and Counseling specialists.
