Do You Feel Anxious?

Do You Feel Anxious?

When you're feeling anxious or stressed, your body releases stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortical. These cause the physical symptoms of anxiety, such as an increased heart rate and increased sweating. Physical symptoms can include: a pounding heartbeat.
Anxiety is a feeling of unease, worry or fear. Everyone feels anxious at some point in their life, but for some people it can be an ongoing problem.
A little bit of anxiety can be helpful; for example, feeling anxious before an exam might make you more alert and improve your performance. But too much anxiety could make you tired and unable to concentrate.
Everyone feels anxious or worried at some point. Anxiety can be a very normal reaction to a tough situation. Sometimes, anxiety can help you rise to a challenge. For example, feeling worried about a test can make you study for it.
An anxiety disorder is different from normal anxiety. A person with an anxiety disorder has very strong feelings of worry or dread for months. These feelings come often, and they get in the way of the person's everyday life. If you think you have an anxiety disorder, talk to

Are you thinking about doing something you find scary? One helpful tool is to ask yourself, "What is the worst thing that can happen?" You may realize that the worst thing that can happen actually is a lot less scary than you thought. And you might also consider the best that can happen — like everything will go fabulously well and you'll have a great time.

Here are some more ways to handle anxiety
  • Go someplace peaceful. You might take a walk in nature or lie down someplace quiet in your house.
  • Connect with others. It can feel great to have support. Friends can get your mind off your worries and onto something fun.
  • Do something soothing. Try yoga or deep breathing.
  • Find healthy ways to deal with pressure. Stress-busting tips can help calm you down.
  • Think positive. Think about the great things in your life  and in yourself! Imagine really good times heading your way.
  • Avoid things that can make your worry worse. Caffeine and certain drugs can make you feel more on edge, for example. If you're looking for energy, healthy foods and good sleep are much better bets.

If your anxiety is getting in the way of your life or it goes on for too long, you may need treatment. Treatment for anxiety disorders may include medicines or therapy. Treatment can work very well, and you can feel better. Anxiety disorders that aren't treated can get worse, though. You can find out about treatment by talking with your parents or another trusted adult.
