What is anxiety?

Anxiety refers to a group of mental health disorders that cause you to experience intense, persistent worry or fear about everyday situations like going outside, interacting with others, or coming into contact with germs. 

Almost everyone experiences anxiety on occasion. However, if your anxiety interferes with your ability to go to work, run errands, or participate in other routine activities, it could point to a more serious problem. Fortunately, with proper diagnoses and care, it’s possible to treat anxiety. 


What are the symptoms of anxiety?

The symptoms of anxiety vary between people and depend on the severity of the condition. Common telltale signs of anxiety include:

  • Feelings of nervousness or restlessness
  • An increased heart rate
  • Sweaty palms
  • Trembling
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Experiencing gastrointestinal problems
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Difficulty concentrating

If you suffer from anxiety, you might also experience the urge to avoid activities that trigger your symptoms. 


Why is it important to treat anxiety?

Anxiety is more than an annoyance. Without proper treatment, it can significantly affect your quality of life. Anxiety can also lead to or worsen certain physical and mental health conditions, including:

  • Substance abuse
