Anxiety is like a smoke alarm. It goes off when it detects a threat in our bodies or our environments — like when we feel we’re in danger, alone or out of control. In most cases (though not all), anxiety does not mean something is wrong inside us, but rather, it means there are fires in our environment — like disconnection, safety concerns, overstimulation or past trauma — that need to be addressed. Sometimes, it’s as simple as drinking way too much coffee and not getting enough sleep.
