We all have times when we feel anxious…. butterflies in the stomach before a presentation, worry over bills, pressure to finish something…
Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It helps one deal with a tense situation at work, study harder for an exam, or keep focused on an important speech. But over 40 million adults experience too much anxiety ranging from free floating feeling of anxiousness and distractedness to feeling of uncertainty and fear that effect the quality of life.
Anxiety can cause difficulty relaxing or sleeping, sweaty palms, shortness of breath, pounding heart, dizziness and chest pain. It can be mildly annoying or severely disabling. Effective therapies are available and research is uncovering new treatment that can help most people with anxiety.
