Anxiety is a state of heightened apprehension, characterized by excessive worry, nervousness, and physical symptoms such as restlessness or trembling. It typically arises from a perceived threat or uncertainty about the future and can impair daily functioning. Anxiety disorders may include phobias, generalized anxiety, panic, and responses to trauma, among other problems.

Types of Anxiety Disorders:

Anxiety symptoms include excessive worry, restlessness, rapid heartbeat, sweating, trembling, difficulty concentrating, muscle tension, fatigue, irritability, sleep disturbances, and gastrointestinal issues like stomachaches or nausea.

How therapy works

Therapy for anxiety typically involves exploring triggers, challenging irrational thoughts, developing coping strategies, and relaxation techniques. Therapists use approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to reframe negative thinking patterns and Exposure Therapy to confront feared situations gradually, reducing anxiety’s impact on daily life.

Breaking the Stigma

It’s important to recognize that anxiety is a legitimate medical condition and not a sign of weakness or personal failing. By raising awareness and promoting open discussions about mental health, we can help break the stigma surrounding anxiety and encourage more people to seek the support they need.
