Thoughts and concerns are persistent and troubling.
Worrying seems to be a way of life for you. You may worry constantly about relationships, work, and unexpected life events – all of which keep you on guard for the next bad event.
Concentration is complex, and feeling anxious makes it challenging to have a good night’s sleep. Sometimes, an event triggers a sense of desperation as your heart rate increases and breathing becomes difficult.
Relationships can become challenging, especially if you feel constantly on edge or angry. Therefore, you avoid social settings, family, and anything that makes you anxious – making your world smaller and smaller.
Living day-to-day is challenging.
These feelings exemplify persistent anxiety.
When you suffer from anxiety, your brain seems never to shut off. It’s constantly thinking about the worst-case scenarios or things that could go wrong. The more you try to distract or push away those thoughts, the stronger and more frequent they become.
Anxiety has many causes; some are environmental, and others may be genetic. Unfortunately, high levels of anxiety can lead to unhealthy patterns – affecting you mentally and physically.
Don’t think of anxiety as a medical condition but rather a reaction to events and triggers that cause exaggerated emotional responses.
