What Is Anxiety?
Anxiety, or extreme apprehension and worry, is a normal reaction to stressful situations. In some cases, however, worry becomes excessive or chronic and can cause sufferers to dread everyday situations.
For many people the holidays are happy times – family gathered around the table to dine and spread good cheer; presents to buy, wrap and open; bellies full of delicious dinners; and a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues. The anticipation of the holidays and the reality of the holidays are positive experiences and memories to carry for years to come.
