Anxiety is normal human reaction to life challenges. Your body’s natural response to stress can trigger fear, worry or apprehension about a perceived threat. Different life situations such as change in employment, divorce, having an interview, sitting exams, or moving home can bring up anxiety. For whatever reasons, everyone can experience feelings of anxiety at some point in their life.
However, anxiety becomes a problem when it turns into one of the anxiety disorders such as generalised anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder. These mental conditions are diagnosed when for a prolonged time you experience various psychosomatic symptoms that create significant distress and interfere with your daily life.
We live in a world of constant change and disruption that has never been as pronounced as during the global Covid-19 crisis. Unfortunately, the by-product of the pandemic is another health crisis.
With the lockdown, came the unprecedented isolation, loneliness, disconnectedness and uncertainty that negatively affect the mental health of millions of people around the globe.
Worldwide, there’s a significant increase in neuroticism, especially anxiety and depression. Note that these common mental health conditions are comorbid which means that they can occur simultaneously.
