What is anxiety?

Anxiety is when you feel fearful in response to certain situations when something doesn’t seem right. Most everyone naturally experiences anxiety on occasion.

It occurs when your brain has a “fight or flight” reaction to a real or perceived threat. It can be triggered when you’re in or near a threatening environment like a fire or car accident.

However, if you experience this biological reaction every single day, it can interfere with your routine and overall quality of life.

Different types of anxiety disorders include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Phobias
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Separation anxiety disorder

Anxiety can affect your ability to perform well at school or work and interfere with your relationships. If you experience anxiety, the team at Peace, Hope & Harmony, Inc., can help.

What are symptoms of anxiety?

The list of symptoms of anxiety varies and can also have different levels of intensity.

They include:

  • Nervousness
  • Fearfulness
  • Feeling of impending doom
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Lack of concentration
  • Gastrointestinal issues

If you have anxiety, it can cause you to avoid specific triggers. For example, if you’re afraid of heights, you might avoid going to the tops of buildings or even flying on an airplane. Or, if you’re uncomfortable at the thought of being in deep water, you might avoid getting near swimming pools or the ocean.

The good news is treatment for anxiety can help you overcome your triggers.
