What is Anxiety?

Anxiety refers to a feeling of unease, nervousness, or worry about something specific that has an uncertain outcome. Anxiety is a condition that is not always negative, particularly if you encounter it on a short term basis in your everyday life. For instance, in the short term, this condition can assist you to overcome a dangerous or challenging situation. Some examples of everyday anxiety include feeling nervous prior to a big test or being worried about a job interview.

It’s when your anxiety starts interfering with your day to day activities, that it may be an indication of a more serious problem. Do you avoid situations on a regular basis due to constantly worrying or having irrational fears? Do you encounter severe anxiety because of a traumatic event which happened several weeks or months ago? If this is you, it is advisable you consider seeking professional help.

Anxiety is a condition that can produce either psychological or physical symptoms, or both. People normally experience anxiety differently. Some of the common physical symptoms of anxiety include muscle tension, fast heartbeat, sweating, headache, stomach ache and dizziness, among others.

Also, in addition to these physical signs of anxiety, this condition can produce emotional and mental symptoms such as restlessness, difficulty concentrating, irrational anger, and more.
