Anxiety

While concern and worry commonly affect people, anxiety presents itself as much more intrusive to daily life. Unwavering apprehension and dread take hold, with or without correlating stressors.

Common Symptoms of Anxiety

• excessive muscle tension
• irregular heat beat
• panic attacks
• irregular sleep patterns
• troubles breathing

Causes

Anxiety is brought on primarily by environmental factors, such as financial or work-related stress. Family conflict, life transitions, and even certain medications can cause anxiety to set in.

Treatment

Treatment for anxiety includes medication and therapy. Therapy can aid in easing tension, bettering relationships, providing satisfying experiences with work or school, and improving sleep patterns disrupted by anxiety. Therapy aims to get to the root of the matter, instead of mitigating the symptoms, as with medication. A skilled therapist can provide the necessary tools to lessen suffering.
