Stress and Anxiety:
Most people encounter a fair amount of stress in their daily lives, at school, work, and at home. The level of stress experienced may become a problem when it begins to feel overwhelming, you have difficulty concentrating, and your sleep, eating habits, relationships and overall lifestyle are affected. You may also be affected by persistent anxiety that interferes with your life. Some signs of an anxiety disorder include checking or rechecking rituals, excessive worry about everyday occurrences and activities, intense fear or panic attacks that appears for no apparent reason, persistent fear of social situations, or recurring nightmares or memories of a traumatic event. Treatment for excessive stress and anxiety focuses on ways of dealing with these emotions effectively, learning relaxation skills, and learning to function and lead a satisfying life in face of stressful and anxiety-provoking situations.
