Got too much on your mind? It’s natural to feel anxious, worried or scared in certain situations but it can sometimes be difficult to control these feelings.

The NHS defines anxiety as “a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe” and notes that it could lead to specific conditions, such as generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder.

Symptoms of anxiety vary from person to person and can be both physical and psychological. They might include a fast heartbeat, headaches and feeling shaky. Anxiety can also lead to sleep problems, poor concentration, irritability and changes in appetite. In more severe cases, it might result in panic attacks, feeling unable to see people or carry out your job and generally not enjoying life.
