Sometimes anxiety bites, hard.
In a world where we are constantly on the go and where technology invades our every waking moment it comes as no surprise that many of us feel like our minds are always switched on, consumed by worries and fears, or varying degrees of anxious thoughts and feelings. Anxiety has become one of the most common mental health conditions in Australia with approximatly 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men experiencing anxiety throughout their lifetime.
Anxiety is more than just having an occasional anxious thought — this is normal from time to time or during periods of stress. Anxiety is when these anxious thoughts and feelings don't go away, when they happen for no particular reason or cause and make daily functioning difficult.
