Being environmentally friendly can be exhausting sometimes. Keeping abreast of the serious and frankly terrifying things that are being done to our planet is enough to make anyone a little on edge. While it’s everyone’s responsibility to understand what is going on around us and do the right thing in response, doing so can sometimes remind us of the phrase 'ignorance is bliss' or 'not in our lifetime'.
Many people recycle and use CFL bulbs and drive fuel-efficient cars and avoid plastic whenever possible, and that’s great. However, there are some who literally worry themselves sick over the environment, and those people have what is known as eco-anxiety. They are aware of more science-based facts and do worry about what kind of environment is going to be left to their children and childrens children.
Eco-anxiety comes with the same kinds of symptoms as regular anxiety — panic attacks, loss of appetite, weakness, nausea, sleeplessness, overwhelm, etc. The difference is that for the eco-anxious, these symptoms are triggered by various environmental scenarios. There are also those who say eco-anxiety is just a product of the media blowing things out of proportion in regards to global warming and other environmental issues, which really isn't the case at all.
