Anxiety is a feeling of worry, unease, or nervousness that can be triggered by a variety of situations. It is a normal and common emotional response to stress, uncertainty, or danger. However, when anxiety becomes persistent or excessive, it can interfere with daily activities, relationships, and overall quality of life. People with anxiety may experience physical symptoms like sweating, trembling, rapid heartbeat, or difficulty breathing. They may also feel tense, restless, or have trouble concentrating. Anxiety can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, environment, and life experiences.
Therapy for anxiety typically involves identifying the underlying thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that contribute to the anxiety, and developing strategies to address and manage these factors.
