Understanding Anxiety and the Stress Response

According to the Anxiety & Depression Association of America (ADAA), anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults in the United States every year, making it the most common mental illness. Anxiety is characterized by an exaggerated stress response, often triggered by perceived threats. The human body reacts to stress by activating the “fight or flight” response through the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS consists of two components: the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), which initiates the stress response, and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), which restores the body to a state of calm. When a perceived threat is encountered, the SNS releases stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, elevating heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate, preparing the body for immediate action. While this mechanism is crucial for survival, chronic activation can lead to various health issues, including anxiety disorders.

Employing the Relaxation Response as an Antidote

The relaxation response serves as an antidote to the stress response. It is activated by the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting a state of rest and recovery. This response reduces the production of stress hormones, lowers heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate, and increases feelings of calm and well-being.

At Boundless, our team equips clients with tools and skills that help them trigger the relaxation response. Including deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and mindfulness meditation. Regular practice of these techniques can help build resilience to stress, balance the autonomic nervous system, and mitigate the impact of anxiety.
