Why Anxiousness Happens

Our brains can react to threats by causing feelings of anxiety.

Our brains are always at work—affecting how we think, feel, act, and how we perceive the world. Our brains react to threats by releasing chemical messengers that can cause our thoughts to race, prevent us from sleeping, and impact our ability to function. 

During the pandemic, for many of us, threats seemed to be everywhere, putting our brains on constant alert and in a state of anxiety. If feelings of anxiousness seem to be taking over, CTStronger can help.
