What is anxiety?

Most people feel anxious at some point. Anxiety is a sense of fear and worry that something is wrong. Such feelings are common in people of all ages and backgrounds. Anxiety can be useful as it helps people focus on dangers. It can also help motivate people to solve their problem. However, feelings of worry can also create problems. A person may feel anxious all the time about minor problems. The net result can be paralyzing as they find themselves caught up in such thoughts to the exclusion of all else. For some, it can create huge barriers in life which can even impede with work or school. Anxiety counseling is proven to be 3x more effective than medication alone.
