Most everyone has felt anxious at some point; before a job interview, first date, or an important event. The symptoms of anxiety may actually help to motivate us to focus and achieve. However, when anxiety becomes unmanageable to the point that it is interfering with daily functioning it may be time to get help.
1. The anxious body (physical symptoms of terror and panic, sweating, trembling, tension, etc.)
2. The anxious mind (overactive thoughts, rumination, worry, inability to shut off thoughts, etc.)
3. Anxious behavior (avoidance of any situation which increases anxiety or engaging in rituals to combat the anxious feelings, etc.).
The good news is that anxiety is a treatable disease and, with treatment, symptoms can be managed or alleviated.
