You find yourself constantly on edge. There's always something stressing you out, always a new problem you can’t stop worrying about. You try to "take it easy," but can't even remember what that feels like anymore. You're constantly thinking through scenarios of future events, questioning the past, and rarely living in the present moment. Your racing mind leaves you exhausted by the end of the day. Sometimes, you just want to run away from all of your problems.
Anxiety manifests itself differently for different people. You might feel physical sensations of anxiety - chest tightness, heart pounding, difficulty breathing. You might have a mind that's always turned on. Either way, you want to simply enjoy life without thinking so much every moment of your waking day.
