Before going for the procurement one must know the cause of it”. There are so many different factors on which your level of anxiety depends upon. You must remember that it doesn’t happen suddenly; it's a combination of thoughts that occurred over a period of time.

  Environmental factors - it depends upon the current stage of your life, like your personal relationship, your work area, your college or school environment, your peer’s group or you must be in an area where the level of oxygen is low like in altitude areas.

  Past or childhood experience – one must experience some toxic environment in their childhood or maybe their past relationships are not that much good, that you remember again and again and once those thoughts and feelings come again you start feeling the same sensations in your body.

  Genetics – This is not proofed by neurologists and physiologists that anxiety is completely transferred from genes but some of them get transferred and the rest of it that you are surrounded by people who are dealing with anxiety and the chances of you getting it increases.

    Drugs and medication – people who are continuously dealing with anxiety or depression there’s a chance of them taking alcohols or other drugs for making those feelings go away but you might end up being addicted to those drugs. For the person who is suffering from some other diseases then there might be a side effect of those medications.  

  Suffered from a traumatic experience – a person who has recently suffered from the death of their loved one that it became so stressful for them that they end up getting panic attacks.

Remember this-

“Anxiety occurs with the thoughts and the first step is taking your attention away from those thoughts”.
