Anxiety

We can all experience anxious feelings sometimes – it might be about exam results, a job interview or even who will win the final of a sports match. These feelings are a normal part of life and can help us avoid danger or perform at our best. For some people though, their anxious feelings can be much more extreme. This anxiety is more than feeling stressed – it’s a serious condition that makes day-to-day life difficult.

Anxiety is the body’s physical response to fear. The symptoms might include:

  • racing heart
  • rapid breathing
  • sweaty palms
  • butterflies in your stomach
  • ‘burst’ of energy
