Anxiety

Do you worry excessively about things that are unlikely to happen, or feel tense and anxious all day long – sometimes with no real reason?  Everyone gets anxious sometimes, but if your worries and fears are so constant that they interfere with your ability to function and relax, you may have generalised anxiety disorder.  GAD is mentally and physically exhausting.  It drains your energy, interferes with sleep, and wears your body out.  But you can break free from chronic worrying and learn to calm your anxious mind.

Stress

There are an abundant number of emotional and physical disorders which have been linked to stress; depression, anxiety, heart attacks, stroke, hypertension, disturbance to your immune system that increases your risk of infections, viral disorders such as the common cold and herpes.  Furthermore, stress can have direct effects on the skin (rashes, hives, atopic dermatitis, gastrointestinal system (peptic ulcer, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome) and can be a contributing factor linked to insomnia and degenerative neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease.  For all these reasons and more we need to realise how susceptible we are to stress and what we can do to reduce the effects.
