Let's talk about anxiety and what a bitch it can be! Anxiety is not the same as fear. Anxiety is the general term of unpleasant or uncomfortable feelings associated with a future threat - an event that you have built up so much in your head that it can consume and overwhelm you.
Anxiety is a feeling of uneasiness and worry, usually generalized and unfocused as an overreaction to a situation that is only subjectively seen as menacing. It is often accompanied by muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue and problems in concentration.
Often we allow anxiety to take over so much that we can never really enjoy being in the present moment. It robs us of our joy and peace. City dwellers have a higher risk of anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses. Studies have shown that just by being around greenery, the brain quiets. You immediately feel calmer, less muscle tension, refreshed, blood pressure lowers, and you are more focused to make decisions throughout the day. And to be more science-y, by being out in nature it quiets the subgenual prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain associated with anxiety and brooding.
Now that I am done with being technical and science-y, lets talk about this gorgeous babe featured! Miss A voiced about her high anxiety. It was something she dealt with on a daily basis, in her personal and professional life. Sometimes it would consume her, so much so that it ALMOST kept her from doing this shoot!
