When Does Anxiety Turn Into A Problem?

We keep on hearing that you should seek help for anxiety if it's becoming a problem in your life but how do we determine if anxiety has reached that far in your life?

Having mild or occasional anxiety is completely normal however it can get out of control really quick if you don't keep an eye on it. Mild anxiety is supposed to keep us safe and sound by giving us a foresight yet sometimes it can become the very thing that ruins our future. To keep it simple, anxiety will become a problem when

  1. Anxiety becomes intense and you cannot control your body.
  2. Anxiety becomes a daily habit which you cannot get rid of.
  3. Anxiety stops you from doing what you love or used to love.
  4. Anxiety starts even if there is no true danger for example from hearing loud noises or strong smells.
Feeling restless without any reason, having sleeping problems every night and waking up tired every day, or just not being able to control you worries, it all comes back to anxiety becoming a problem. If you cannot identify if anxiety is becoming a problem or not, going to a medical professional might help you since not only can they identify it, but they can also help you get better. Remember that healing your brain takes time and that putting in even a little bit of effort can add up to a lot in a small amount of time.
