Understanding Anticipatory Anxiety


Understanding Anticipatory Anxiety

This 3-page product illustrates the differences between a typical anxiety pattern and an unhealthy anticipatory anxiety pattern, and includes practical tips to help resolve anxiety in healthy ways. Anticipatory anxiety develops when the mind attempts to predict, process, and adapt to future events. It helps individuals prepare for future events, but an overabundance of anxiety can be unhealthy. It often manifests as fear and worry as the body expends energy anticipating potential periods of stress or crisis.
