Do you know the difference between stress and anxiety? No matter how great our relationships, no matter how calm our work environment, no matter how abundant our finances, stressors are an avoidable part of life. We all have deadlines with things to accomplish, we have weddings and house moves and new jobs to learn. We get caught in traffic and lose our internet signal. How we deal with these things as they come up determines how enjoyable our lives are on a day to day basis.
Anxiety is more generalized. It can be so pervasive that although we know we are miserable, it’s not tied to any particular issue or event, like planning a wedding for six months that will be over. It’s usually a way of life. Many of us remember being anxious as children or remember how anxious a parent was. For ancient survival, the more primitive part of our brain is constantly scanning for danger, so it has a bias to look for the negative. Neuropsychologist Rick Hanson says that our brains are like Velcro for the negative and Teflon for the positive. We can even invent things to worry about that may never come true!
