You find yourself constantly on edge. There's always something making you feel stressed out, always a new problem to worry about that you can't stop thinking about. You try to just "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 barely 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 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.
