Anxiety can be defined as, “…a future-oriented mood state in which one is ready or prepared to attempt to cope with upcoming negative events.”* Anxiety is not always a negative feeling; this emotion prepares the body for a number of psychological and physiological processes that can be helpful in the face of upcoming danger or stress.

Anxiety becomes a problem, however, when no actual danger or stress exists. Symptoms of anxiety can be debilitating and can make routine tasks, such as going to work or school, seem difficult or even impossible. The ability to enjoy life to the fullest is impaired when every activity is clouded with anxiety or the anticipation of anxiety.

Anxiety is a very real physical experience. Physical symptoms include (but are not limited to):

• Racing heart

• Sweating

• Stomach upset or diarrhea

• Frequent urination

• Shortness of breath

• Headaches

• Fatigue

• Insomnia

• Dizziness

Anxiety also produces negative emotional effects, including depression. Depression and anxiety often go hand in hand, where each problem exacerbates the other in a vicious cycle of escalating anxiety and depression. Other mental health issues connected with anxiety include eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and substance abuse.
