What sets the feelings of anxiety apart from a regular experience of emotions is that they occur out of all proportion with external causation factors; they can even occur suddenly with no apparent explanation or trigger.
For those of us experiencing anxiety, the intensity of these feelings can be difficult or impossible to shake, alleviate or distract from. This can lead to significant distress, difficulty working and carrying out daily tasks, even interrupting healthy eating and sleeping patterns.
Externally, anxiety can manifest in physical sensations including palpitations, trembling, nausea, fatigue, sweating, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Individuals may also experience bouts of hypervigilance, irritability, restlessness and racing or intrusive thoughts.
More than 1 in 10 Australians report anxiety-related experiences each year.
