Feeling anxious?

Anxiety is a natural human response to stress. When we feel anxious we can experience a sense of uneasiness, nervousness, worry and fear. Our heart might quicken, our muscles might tense up, while our sweat glands go into overdrive. After a while a feeling of weakness and lethargy sets in and everything may begin to feel impossible.

Common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Mood swings and strange thoughts

  • Irritability

  • Sleep problems

  • Poor concentration

  • Breathlessness

  • Tightness in chest

  • Heart palpitations

  • Increased blood pressure

  • Sweating

  • Fatigue
