Anxiety can manifest in the body and in the mind. Most people experience anxiety at various points in their life and at varied levels of severity.
Some people experience anxiety for short periods of time (like a panic attack) or for longer periods of time (like a sense of unease or worry that lasts for days or weeks). Often the symptoms develop slowly. How these symptoms are experienced varies from person to person. Ask Yourself – How does Anxiety effect you?
