What Is Anxiety

What Is Anxiety

Just like everyone feels sad from time to time, we all experience anxiety too and it will affect each one of us differently,

People may get anxious about giving a speech, going to a job interview, first date, talking to the opposite sex etc, there are many different ways we may experience anxiety

People struggling with anxiety don’t get anxious about one specific event, say giving a speech, for example,

They feel anxious about a wide range of events and scenarios on a constant basis.

People with Anxiety may feel anxious most days and often struggle to remember the last time they felt relaxed.

As soon as one anxious thought is resolved, another may appear about a different issue
