It’s normal to feel anxious about moving to a new place, starting a new job, or taking a test. This type of anxiety is unpleasant, but it may motivate you to work harder and do a better job. Ordinary anxiety is a feeling that comes and goes but doesn’t interfere with your everyday life. In the case of an anxiety disorder, the feeling of fear may be with you all the time. It’s intense and sometimes debilitating. This type of anxiety may cause you to stop doing things you enjoy.

What are anxiety disorders?

Generalized anxiety disorder (gad). People with gad worry excessively about ordinary, day-to-day issues, such as health, money, work, and family. With gad, the mind often jumps to the worst-case scenario, even when there is little or no reason to worry. Women with gad may be anxious about just getting through the day. They may have muscle tension and other stress-related physical symptoms, such as trouble sleeping or upset stomach. At times, worrying keeps people with gad from doing everyday tasks. Women with gad have a higher risk of depression and other anxiety disorders than men with gad. They also are more likely to have a family history of depression.

Many of the clients i have supported found breathing exercises and grounding techniques worked well for them when suffering high anxiety or panic attacks. Many had heard of ‘breathing exercises’ and ‘grounding’, however, they were unsure what they meant and how to go about using these techniques.
