What is Anxiety?
The American Psychological Association (APA) defines anxiety as “an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure.”
It’s important to understand and acknowledge the difference between what’s considered to be normally occurring anxiety and an anxiety disorder. Everyone will experience some sort of anxiety in their lifetime, and in many cases this anxiety is a normal and healthy biological response to stress. It’s important to distinguish between these types of “normal” anxiety and anxiety that is disruptive to your every day life and requires professional help.
How do you know if your Anxiety is a problem?
Normally occurring anxiety usually occurs in response to a specific situation and subsides quickly. The American Psychological Association (APA) considers a person to have an anxiety disorder once they begin having “recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns” and the amount of anxiety they’re experiencing is considered to be out of proportion with the reality of the situation.
How common is Anxiety?
Anxiety is actually the most common form of mental illness in the United States. According to The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) over 40 million adults in the US suffer from one or more forms of anxiety. This isn’t something that’s simply confined to the United States either, it’s been estimated that something like 1 in 13 adults around the world suffer from a form of anxiety.
