Below is a great article about anxiety and how it differs from stress. It talks about the hormonal responses which drive the physical feelings that stem from how the brain is processing information, as well as addressing ways to build good coping mechanisms. But what if there was a way to not need to cope any more? How great would that be?
How we respond to an event or situation is determined by whether we deem it as a threat or not - can we cope with it? This is a sense that we develop through our lives and is a combination of learned behaviours from influential figures in our lives whilst growing up, and traumas that we have experienced throughout our lives. Simply put if we have grown up around anxious parents or suffered a traumatic childhood with bereavements, accidents and so on we are more likely to be anxious.
Every single person has suffered emotional traumas throughout their lives that will still be having an impact on that persons stress levels, be it a bad break-up, a parents divorce, an abusive relationship, even an interaction with a parent that left the child you feeling upset, alone or abandoned. And while learned behaviours can be hard to get on top of the traumas can be resolved and therefore no longer need to be managed. When you resolve the emotions surrounding one of these traumatic events this 'de-stresses' the persons system and gives them a much greater capacity to cope with whatever life can throw at them and also go a long way to reducing anxiety (depending on the source).
