We all experience stress in our daily lives. While some stress is good for us and helps us respond to changes in life and adapt to difficult situations, stressful events can sometimes get overwhelming and too difficult to reasonably tolerate. Stress comes in many forms, including work-related or financial stress, challenges with social or interpersonal relationships, new life changes, and even impending positive life experience such as an upcoming marriage, vacation, career or job change, planned retirement, or move.
When stress becomes chronic or prolonged, and/or is not managed in effective ways, this can lead to physical and psychological effects including anxiety. Symptoms of anxiety include excessive worry or fear, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, tense or achy muscles, inability to concentrate, avoidance of a feared object, person, or place, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath or panic attacks.
