Anxiety can impact every aspect of a person’s life. It affects how people think and feel, and it has physical symptoms.
Anxiety resembles fear, but when a person experiences fear, they know why they are afraid. Anxiety is often less specific.
Some people are more prone to anxiety than others. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling, while severe anxiety can be debilitating.
Even for people who experience frequent or severe episodes of anxiety, there are ways to manage it.
