For 1 in 4 people anxiety is debilitating

Anxiety is a common and often debilitating mental health condition that can affect people of all ages and backgrounds. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders worldwide, affecting around 1 in 4 people in their lives.

Anxiety can manifest in different ways and can range from mild to severe. It can cause physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, and difficulty breathing, as well as emotional symptoms such as feelings of worry, fear, and panic. If you are experiencing anxiety that is disrupting your daily life, it is important to seek help from a mental health professional who can help you manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

With the help of a therapist, counsellor, or another mental health professional, you can develop coping strategies and work with you to identify the causes of your anxiety and manage it.

If you are experiencing severe anxiety or panic attacks, it is important to seek help immediately. You can contact your primary care doctor or a mental health professional for an evaluation and treatment recommendations. Sometimes, they may recommend medication to help manage your anxiety.

It is also important to take care of yourself and practice self-care. This can include getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, and engaging in activities that you enjoy. It can also be helpful to talk to a trusted friend or family member about your anxiety and how you are feeling.

Remember, it is okay to ask for help. Seeking treatment for anxiety is a sign of strength and can lead to a happier and healthier life.
