What is an anxiety disorder?
A little anxiety in your day-to-day life is very normal but when it starts hindering your functioning or makes it difficult for you to function at your optimum level in a healthy manner, it is considered an anxiety disorder. It interferes with your ability to respond to a situation calmly and might lead to emotional reactions when you feel triggered by something out of your control. It often looks like a racing heart, muscle tension, or trouble sleeping. While an anxiety disorder can be overwhelming, there are several treatments available to help you tackle the symptoms.
