What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

If you struggle with anxiety, know that you are not alone. Anxiety is a tough condition that many people struggle with.


There are many common symptoms that people with anxiety experience, both physical and emotional, and it can be helpful to know what to look out for.

Here are some of the top signs of anxiety:


  • Excessive worrying: Anxiety can cause persistent and uncontrollable worrying about everyday events, such as work, relationships, or health. This worrying can be so severe that it interferes with daily activities.


  • Irritability: People with anxiety may feel irritable or easily agitated, which can make it difficult to interact with others.


  • Muscle tension: Anxiety can cause muscle tension, which may lead to headaches, neck pain, or back pain.


  • Restlessness: Restlessness is a common symptom of anxiety, which may cause people to feel fidgety, unable to sit still, or constantly on the move.


  • Sleep disturbances: Anxiety can cause sleep disturbances, such as difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up early.


  • Panic attacks: People with anxiety may experience sudden and intense feelings of fear or panic, which can cause physical symptoms such as a racing heartbeat, sweating, trembling, and shortness of breath.


  • Avoidance behaviors: Anxiety can cause people to avoid certain situations or activities that they perceive as threatening or anxiety-provoking.


  • Digestive problems: Anxiety can cause digestive problems, such as stomachaches, diarrhea, or constipation.


  • Difficulty concentrating: People with anxiety may have difficulty concentrating or focusing on tasks, which can affect their work or school performance.


  • Self-doubt: Anxiety can cause self-doubt, negative thoughts, and feelings of inadequacy, which can lower a person's self-esteem and confidence.


It's important to remember that everyone experiences anxiety differently, and not everyone will experience all of these. However, if you are struggling with any of the above, there are treatments available that will help you manage your anxiety.

Evidence-Based Anxiety Treatment Options

At Stillwaters, we provide the best possible treatment options for our clients dealing with anxiety. Luckily, there are a wide range evidence-based treatments that have been shown to be effective in reducing anxiety symptoms and improving overall mental health.


One popular treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which involves identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety. CBT has consistently been shown to be effective in treating anxiety disorders.


Mindfulness-based therapies, such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), can also be effective in reducing anxiety symptoms by helping clients stay in the present moment and accept difficult thoughts and feelings.


No matter what the approach, our evidence-based strategies can help you overcome your daily stresses and triggers.
