What is anxiety?


When you have general feelings of apprehension and worry without a particular trigger or cause – or once the original source of stress has passed or disappeared - that’s probably anxiety. Although it can sometimes be easy to confuse the symptoms with the hectic pace of modern life, long term anxiety can have a big effect on your life and can result in a feeling of being uncertain and ‘out of balance’.

Coping with anxiety

It’s difficult to make anxiety just ‘go away’, but there are lots of things you can do to cope with it, feel better and get on with life.


Adjust your diet and lifestyle

Avoid caffeine, which can raise your heart rate and make you feel more anxious. Smoking and alcohol have also been shown to make anxiety worse.

Find support

Anxiety UK is a registered charity that can provide support and help if you’ve been diagnosed with, or you suspect you may have, an anxiety condition. Mind, the mental health charity, provides advice and support to help empower anyone experiencing mental health problems, including anxiety.

Stay active

Physical exercise can certainly help to reduce tension, stress and mental fatigue. You don’t need to join a gym or sports team; simply walking instead of taking the bus, or taking the stairs instead of the lift, can make a difference.

Activities like yoga and pilates can help you stay both calmer and more energised, and keep your mind focused.
