Anxiety is an everyday emotion that most people feel quite often. Worrying about an upcoming interview or whether you’re going to catch your plane on time are perfectly normal responses to familiar situations.

Anxiety and stress can even improve your performance, heightening your senses and boosting motivation. The problem arises when these feelings of anxiety never end and begin to interfere with your everyday life.

If you’re living in a continuous state of fear and extreme worry, then what should be a healthy emotion has changed into an anxiety disorder.
