It is normal to feel anxious in advance of an important interview, work presentation, or a big trip. Chronic and pervasive anxiety takes a considerable toll on life and interferes with your ability to work, interact with others, and perform daily tasks.
Some of the challenging symptoms of anxiety include nervousness and worry, a sense of doom or danger, worst-case thinking, overthinking plans and solutions, restlessness, inability to let go of worry, and panic attacks.
Anxiety has many underlying causes, including separation anxiety, social anxiety disorder, and phobias. Each anxiety disorder has slightly different characteristics. Daily life can cause anxiety, especially if you’re under stress with pressure, and may show up as distress or nervousness in new situations.
