Having some anxiety now and again is normal. We all worry about things from time to time. We might worry whether we are a good parent, if we’ll keep our job, about our relationship going wrong. These sorts of worries are normal and a part of life.
It becomes unhealthy when it’s prolonged and becomes “too much”. Too much worry, too much stress, too much adrenaline. This can lead to agitation, sleep difficulties, a churning stomach, dry mouth and actively avoiding people or places which make you anxious.
Prolonged anxiety might have started out as a normal and natural worry. When it grows into the feeling that we are losing control over our lives, it threatens our physical, mental and emotional well-being.
It is possible to learn how to manage things better. This is much easier to do with the support of a skilled counsellor.
