Anxiety is a normal and adaptive human emotion, but only to a certain extent. It can present as stress, nervousness, worry, or panic. Anxiety can impact your work, make it difficult to concentrate, and prevent you from connecting with loved ones. Additionally, it can make you irritable, disrupt your sleep, and even take a physical toll on your body over time. Physical symptoms are common, such as racing heart, sweaty palms, or tightness in the chest. If you’re anxious, you also may be preoccupied with thoughts that people are judging you.
