You're juggling school, work, family, friends and extra-curricular activities, and chances something personal is really stressing you out RN. But what happens when the stress is constant, when it overtakes your life?
Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or concerned about a problem. Anxiety is a feeling that doesn't go away. It continues to exist even when you can't identify why.
Clinical psychologist Dr Glen Hosking explains: "Stress is a normal part of our day-to day lives, but anxiety becomes a problem when it starts impacting our functioning. Or we may find we're so anxious that we don't want to go to class and we start to avoid socialising. All of these are indicators that normal stress has become more chronic anxiety, and it's at this point that we should consider getting some help."
