    Almost one factor in our lives causes us pain or overwhelming emotions. One such factor 
    can be hard to determine and can be seen as inconceivable, among many others. These 
    emotions may be hard to identify, harder to grasp, and could lead to various unfavorable 
    events in our lives. Unless they are recognized for the problems they cause, and 
    appropriate care is offered as soon as they are conceived. 
    Anxiety, also termed by the common notion of concern, is one such thing in our lives that 
    affects us, daily or temporarily. It is that one factor that people need to be cautious of and 
    should make no fault in determining the cause of. The solutions that come forth after 
    conceiving the cause are also to be given crucial importance. 
    Some common questions that many people wonder: What is anxiety? What is the cure for 
    anxiety? Are there any symptoms to determine it? There are a lot of questions, but there 
    appear to be fewer solutions. Although these solutions can be determined over time and 
    implemented in our daily lives, doing so requires perseverance. The constant motivation 
    and drive are what makes it seem real in the end, but knowing the solutions that can aid 
    when implemented is one vital step towards happiness. 
    “Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Happiness” helps determine the different causes of anxiety in its 
    various forms, comparing it to other well-known notions and seeking out the differences. 
    It also aims at posing the necessary solutions to combat anxiety using the right practical 
    knowledge and methods.
