What is ANXIETY?

 Anxiety is a normal and often healthy emotion that everyone experiences at some point in their life. However, when anxiety becomes excessive and persistent, it can become a mental health disorder. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders, affecting millions of people worldwide.

Anxiety is characterized by feelings of fear, worry, and apprehension about future events or situations. It can also cause physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, trembling, and shortness of breath.

There are also lifestyle changes that can help, such as regular exercise, stress management techniques, and getting enough sleep. It is important for people experiencing symptoms of anxiety to seek help from a healthcare professional. With proper treatment, most people with anxiety disorders can learn to manage their symptoms and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
