Have you felt it?
That feeling like you’ve been exercising, but you really haven’t? The racing heart; shallow, quick breath; moving around like you’re on pins and needles; anxious about what happens next. And then there’s that uncomfortable tension that seems to follow you. It’s hard to relax, difficult to sleep, and you find yourself worried that you’re worrying too much. Or maybe you haven’t worried enough. Do other people see how worried you are?
If you’ve felt it, and it persists, you may be struggling with anxiety.
Just about everyone experiences some anxiety; it’s a normal part of our existence. But everyone experiences it – and reacts to it – differently. “Normal” anxiety can be a casual concern about health or family or relationships. The worry is manageable, temporary, and usually resolved within a comfortable time.
