What is anxiety?

It is natural to feel anxious or stressed at times when life presents challenges, however, it's important to be aware of the distinction between natural anxiety and anxiety which becomes persistent or excessive. When feelings of overwhelming stress or ruminating worry disrupt your sleep patterns, affect your ability to focus, take on new tasks and responsibilities, or impact relationships with other people, this may be a sign that you are experiencing generalized anxiety disorder.

According to National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated 19.1% of U.S. adults had any anxiety disorder in the past year.

Symptoms may include:

  • Feeling nervous, restless or tense

  • Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom

  • Having an increased heart rate

  • Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation)

  • Sweating

  • Trembling

What are some causes of anxiety?

Difficult experiences in childhood, adolescence or adulthood are a common trigger for anxiety problems. Going through stress and trauma when you're very young is likely to have a particularly big impact. Experiences which can trigger anxiety problems include things like: physical or emotional abuse.

How do you treat anxiety?

Treatment decisions are based on how significantly generalized anxiety disorder is affecting your ability to function in your daily life. The two main treatments for generalized anxiety disorder are psychotherapy and medications. You may benefit most from a combination of the two. It may take some trial and error to discover which treatments work best for you.
