Realistic expectations

Anxiety is often caused by our own expectations. For example, we may expect a road to be smooth, but driving into a pothole may cause great anxiety. The anxiety is caused by the expectation of a good road when it doesn't fit the facts.

To overcome unrealistic expectations, we can adjust old expectations for new information.

Hormones and Neurotransmitters

Hormones are chemicals produced by various glands, called the endocrine system, whose primary function is to communicate between two glands or between a gland and an organ focusing on: mood regulation, pleasure, pain relief etc.
