Stress and Anxiety

stress and anxietyExperiencing stress and anxiety is very common in the world we live in today. A certain amount of stress has become a normal part of daily life – we are all under pressure in various areas of our lives, and there can be high expectations in this day and age to achieve and to cope with ongoing, numerous demands. When the mind is in a constant state of overload, it becomes hyper vigilant and it is hard to switch off and relax. When there are added pressures and stresses such as sickness in the family, financial or relationship problems, grief, significant life changes, a demanding job or a job we dislike, this can lead to us feeling overwhelmed. It becomes difficult to cope each day, without experiencing high stress levels and constant worry about the future.

Stress and anxiety can manifest in various ways, and the symptoms can vary from person to person. Some common symptoms of stress and anxiety are:
