Anxiety

We all know what it feels like to be nervous or anxious from time to time. It’s a part of normal life. However, when a person begins to have recurrent anxiety, it can drastically impact his or her ability to function at work, home, or in school. It is estimated that approximately 1 in 13 suffer from anxiety disorders (World Health Organization, 2021). While anxiety disorders are treatable, only 36.9 % of people seek treatment (ADAA). There are several different types of anxiety and consequently different interventions.
  • Common Symptoms associated with Anxiety:
  • Apprehension: recurrent worry about things and having difficulty controlling the worry
  • Difficulty with concentration
  • Feeling keyed up
  • Muscle tension, feeling lightheaded, rapid heart rate, sweating
