Anxiety affects us all at various times, but for some people these feelings are constant and can affect every single aspect of their life.
A long-term issue with extreme stress will cause you to feel anxious about a range of situations and issues, rather than about one specific thing. Suffering with anxiety will mean that you are likely to feel anxious most days. One anxious thought may replace another and this can be very draining on someone. Common feelings and emotions may include feeling restless or worried, having trouble concentrating or sleeping. Experiencing physical side effects such as dizziness or heart palpitations is also common.
It’s normal to feel anxious about some everyday things, but you may find that there are some key triggers that raise your stress levels. Examples of such triggers include work pressure, exam pressures or relationship difficulties.
