“Apprehension ad anxiety, worries and concerns, injure the spirit”
Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic, from 2nd century BCE
Worry, or anxiety, is thought to serve a useful evolutionary purpose. It has enabled us to anticipate danger and difficulty and plan strategies to deal with them. Moderate worry helps us deal more effectively and safely with our environment and the world, as long as it remains under our control. However, it becomes harmful when it is excessive and we are unable to free ourselves from its tight grip.
