Anxiety is a natural response to stress or a perceived threat, often referred to as the “fight or flight” response. It’s a normal part of life, and in some situations, it can be helpful by alerting us to potential dangers and motivating us to take action.

However, when anxiety becomes excessive, uncontrollable, or irrational, it can develop into an anxiety disorder, which can significantly impact a person’s daily life.

Some common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Excessive worry about future events, often accompanied by a sense of impending doom or dread
  • Tendency to focus on negatives and imagines worst-case scenarios
  • Feeling on edge, unable to relax, or a constant need to stay busy
  • Brain fog and difficulties concentrating
  • Becoming easily agitated, frustrated, or having a short temper
  • Experiencing muscle tension or tightness
  • Feeling constantly tired, even after a full night’s sleep
  • Panic attacks
  • Shortness of breath, sweating, shaking, trembling of hands
  • Difficulty with sleep
  • Avoiding situations or places that trigger anxiety

There are different types of anxiety disorders (such as generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias etc.) and anxiety symptoms can vary from person to person.

If your anxiety starts to feel overwhelming, causes you considerable distress, stops you from doing everyday activities, or interferes with your ability to function socially, academically, personally, or at work, then it is important to seek help.

Treatment for anxiety:

Anxiety disorders are treatable and treatment guidelines vary depending on the type of anxiety you are dealing with. A substantial amount of research in the last few decades has focused on understanding anxiety disorders. This has given practitioners good knowledge of what underlies different conditions, and what helps to overcome them. The treatments and therapies they use can help you understand what drives your anxiety, learn techniques for managing your anxiety in the short term, and develop lasting changes that cultivate more comfortable levels of anxiety in the long term.

Seeking treatment for anxiety can lead to various positive outcomes, including:

  • Reduced worry and feelings of anxiety
  • Increased feelings of calm and security
  • Reduced fear reactions when exposed to anxiety-provoking situations
  • Helpful new coping strategies to reduce symptoms in daily life
  • The ability to think more positively and identify irrational or unhelpful thoughts
  • Better sleep, increased physical health, and more energy
  • Increased confidence and self esteem
  • A sense of control over your life and your circumstances
