Anxiety's like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you very far.― Jodi Picoult
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it is estimated that about 19% of US adults and 31% of adolescents will experience anxiety.
There are seven major types of anxiety disorders; generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and posttraumatic disorder.
Many of us may suffer from a specific stressor that may cause anxiety or we may struggle with persistent feelings of unease. A common response to these feelings is avoidance which only reinforces worries and fear. The main root of anxiety is that people become easily overwhelmed by their emotions which may cause unpleasant feelings and situations.
