Why do we get Nervous?
What is Nervousness?
Nervousness happens to all- children or adults. It is the anxiety that you feel and makes your body tensed. Your body is getting ready for something that is new- maybe exciting as well, like a hiking trip the next day and you cannot sleep the entire night.
When do we get Nervous?
You feel nervous when you do something new or exciting. Also when you face challenging and difficult tasks, you feel nervous. Such feelings of nervousness arise before the activity and usually start going away once you begin that task.
What happens when we get Nervous?
When you are tensed, your body releases a hormone called adrenaline which prepares your body to face the situation. This adrenaline causes physical symptoms like sweating or heavy breathing that tell that you are getting nervous. Adrenaline sends blood rushing to the most important parts of your body like the stomach and the heart. Thus you might feel butterflies in your stomach or heartbeat racing when you feel nervous.
