Anxiety & Stress

Anxiety is a natural response to stress or danger that helps us cope with potential threats. However, for some people, anxiety can become overwhelming and interfere with their daily lives. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterized by excessive and persistent worry about a wide range of topics, often accompanied by physical symptoms like restlessness, fatigue, muscle tension, and difficulty concentrating. When anxiety becomes a chronic issue, it can have a significant impact on a person's life. It can lead to difficulty sleeping, poor concentration, irritability, and physical health problems. People with anxiety may also avoid certain situations or activities that trigger their symptoms, which can lead to social isolation and interfere with their ability to work or maintain relationships. Overall, anxiety can greatly reduce a person's quality of life and prevent them from fully engaging in activities they enjoy. Seeking support from mental health professionals, learning coping strategies, and practicing self-care can help manage anxiety symptoms and improve overall well-being.
