How do you recognize if you’ve been experiencing anxiety?
You find yourself worrying excessively
Your often feel keyed up or on edge
You struggle to control your thoughts
Your chest feels tight and you have to focus because it is hard to take a deep breath

Other types of anxiety may feel like :
You sometimes have panic attacks or feel like you’re going crazy-
It can feel hard to leave the house and go places
You may hate crowds or being around big groups of people

Anxiety can be overwhelming and inhibiting. The racing thoughts spiral in ways that keep you constantly activated, leaving you either highly tensed or utterly exhausted. Sometimes you wonder if your worries will ever ease or if you will feel like this forever. You try to force yourself to relax, but your mind and body won’t listen, even when you are completely depleted. It’s like there’s a constant hamster wheel in your brain; a train of thoughts that eclipses everything else.
