Anxiety

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a sensation of disquiet that can range from minor to severe, such as worry or fear. Anxiety affects everyone at some point in their lives. You might be frightened and apprehensive about taking an exam, a medical test, or a job interview, for example. It’s totally normal to feel apprehensive at moments like this. However, some people find it difficult to manage their fears. Their anxiety is more persistent, and it can have a significant impact on their everyday lives.

Feeling down or hopeless, poor self-esteem, and a lack of enjoyment in activities that you normally like are all symptoms of depression.

Depression has a variety of effects on people and can result in a wide range of symptoms. They can range from long-term emotions of sadness and hopelessness to losing interest in activities you used to enjoy and crying a lot. Anxiety symptoms are common in people with depression.

 Physical symptoms include persistent tiredness, poor sleep, a lack of appetite or sex drive, as well as numerous aches and pains. Depression manifests itself in a variety of ways, from moderate to severe. At its mildest, depression may just make you feel down in the mood, whereas severe depression can make you feel suicidal, as if life is no longer worth living.

During challenging times, most people experience tension, worry, or a bad mood. Rather than being an indication of depression, a poor mood may improve after a short amount of time.
