Anxiety can be defined in many ways; however, it is best described as persistent, excessive worries that don’t go away even without a known source of stress or trigger. Anxiety is normal in stressful situations such as during exams, speaking in public and undertaking activities that could cause harm are just a couple of examples. When feelings of anxiety become excessive or unmanageable and interfere with our daily lives, it is an indicator of a potentially more significant underlying illness. Societal events can cause or add to existing anxieties. We cannot change the event, but we can control how we deal with it and process it.
Stress can be defined as any change/action/event that causes physical, emotional or psychological pressure. Stress is your body telling you attention or action is necessary and that attention or action may create discomfort. Some reported symptoms of people experiencing stress are irritability, anger, tiredness, gut issues and trouble sleeping. Everyone experiences stress to some degree; however, your response to stress makes a big difference to your overall welfare.
