What is an anxious mood?

The anxious mood is by far the most common sub-type of depression, in part because of its relationship to stress. In our experience, nearly 80% of people with a depressed mood fit into the anxious mood sub-type. This pattern is often not true clinical depression, but instead what is called an “adjustment disorder.” By definition, an adjustment disorder is stress-related and most often caused by the way your body and mind react to life situations. This means that  (a) reducing stress or (b) preventing your body from reacting to stress can help your body move out of "fight or flight" mode to a state where you are capable of experiencing more joy.


What does an anxious mood feel like? 

Serotonin is a brain chemical that plays a large role in helping you cope with life’s challenges. Too little serotonin can cause:

  • Feelings of susceptibility to even mild stresses.
  • Feelings of insecurity or insufficiency.
  • Difficulty taking risks and putting yourself out into the world.
  • A tendency to withdraw, even from friends or activities that would be supportive.
  • Impulsive behaviors like binge eating, alcohol abuse, or serial relationships, which represent an unconscious effort to feel better. Unfortunately, these actions only makes things worse.
