Anxiety is a widespread problem that affects much of our society. Life full of stress and fast pace can make people suffer from anxiety. Sometimes the level of anxiety is so high that some people must take medication in order to feel better and function well in their day-to-day lives.

Life is not really easy, but it is worth living since it has great things hidden in small moments. Although there are reasons in life that can make you feel that you want to scream until you lose your voice, it is not worth it to get so out of control emotionally.

When you feel anxiety …

When a person feels that they have anxiety, they believe that they are losing control of what is happening around them. If this happens to you, you will feel overwhelmed and emotionally unstable. All people at some point in their lives can feel stressed, overworked and above all, physically and mentally exhausted. But is all this happening to you turning into anxiety?

Modern medicine can provide you with a quick solution for times of anxiety (an exam, an opposition, a long flight, an important job interview). Every now and then it’s okay, but sooner or later you find yourself wanting more, and before you know it, you’re sitting in the last row of a support group meeting because you’re on top of the drug to reduce anxiety in your life. .. no great real effects.

There are different types of anxiety

Anxiety appears without you noticing. You can be totally calm, without there being an apparent reason for the anxiety to appear, and without knowing how, your heart begins to pound … so much that you do not know how to stop it and you start to feel tremendously bad.

Sometimes anxiety comes from family nervous moments; before taking a test , going to a job interview or driving through unfamiliar neighborhoods without a GPS. There is also the nervousness known as the famous butterflies in the stomach that can have a good result, such as a successful presentation, a positive pregnancy test, or an exciting journey.
