Anxiety & stress

Anxiety and stress are two related but distinct terms that affect a person’s mental and emotional well-being.Anxiety refers to an excessive response of fear, worry, and heightened tension to situations perceived as threatening or stressful. It is a natural response of the body to danger or challenge, but when anxiety is disproportionate or persistent, it can become an anxiety disorder.

Some common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Constant restlessness and nervousness.
  • Excessive worry and difficulty controlling thoughts.
  • Sense of impending danger or catastrophe.
  • Problems with concentration and difficulty relaxing.
  • Physical symptoms such as palpitations, sweating, trembling, and shortness of breath.
  • Avoidance of situations that trigger anxiety.
Mental Health

Stress, on the other hand, is the body’s response to external demands or pressures, whether they are physical, emotional, or mental. It can be caused by challenging situations, significant life changes, overwhelming responsibilities, or a sense of lack of control.

Some common symptoms of stress include:

  • Constant pressure and tension.
  • Fatigue and exhaustion.
  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions.
  • Changes in appetite and sleep patterns.
  • Irritability and mood swings.
  • Headaches and digestive problems.
Tips & Info


Stress can be acute, as a response to a specific event, or chronic, when it persists over time. Chronic stress can have a negative impact on long-term physical and mental health.It is important to note that both anxiety and stress can significantly affect a person’s quality of life. If not properly managed, they can lead to mental health problems such as anxiety disorders, depression, or stress-related physical issues such as cardiovascular diseases or sleep disorders.


There are various strategies for managing anxiety and stress, which may include:

1. Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga.
2. Regular physical exercise, which can help reduce anxiety and improve mood.
