All of us experience anxiety, but not all anxiety is normal.
Some butterflies before taking a test or giving a speech can help you perform your best. However, there is a tipping point at which anxiety becomes unhelpful. It can even prevent you from living your life to the fullest.
Anxiety can be a surprisingly physical experience: your heart races, you feel panic in your body, or you find yourself with recurrent headaches and stomachaches. Sweating, lightheadedness, or “zoning out” can also be symptoms of anxiety.
