Anxiety is a general sense of uneasiness that manifests itself from mild symptoms such as general unrest to severe symptoms such as a panic attack. Anxiety is often a normal reaction to a stressful situation. We all experience anxiety at some point in our lives. However, subtle symptoms can quickly change into chronic persistent and debilitating symptoms filled with dread. It’s common for people to give up and placate the anxiety, when experiencing this cyclical feeling. However, the more you placate your anxiety, the quicker it increases and persists.
