Anxiety: Who says scientific writing can’t have flair? At least mine could have a little as it wasn’t a research article. I took on the task of looking at trait anxiety, when someone is innately nervous much of the time. I looked at what benefits and disadvantages it had, where the trait came from, and what techniques were available to manage it. I had to back up all of my answers with published, peer-reviewed evidence. It’s amazing how many studies I found on this single topic. So, the hardest part was sifting through those articles to find viable research that answered my questions.
