Anxiety is defined as distress or uneasiness of mind caused by fear of danger or misfortune, and in its most basic form is a common and normal reaction to everyday life stressors. It is when these feelings of worry and apprehension are excessive, uncontrollable, and come with no evidence to warrant the feelings that one may want to consider examining the sources of the these feelings. Uncontrolled anxiety can lead to depressed mood, substance misuse/abuse, and physical symptoms such as tightness in the chest, stomach discomfort, dizziness, muscle tension, restlessness, and headaches. It is important that one treats uncontrolled anxiety for overall health and wellness.
