Higher education is becoming increasingly competitive. Physical and mental fitness is becoming more and more both harder to sustain and in need of greater prioritization. Larger number of students are reported to be in need of therapy than ever before, much of it due to the rising stress and anxiety levels.
Anxiety is a combination of physical and psychological symptoms used to describe a feeling of unease, worry and fear. It is a type of fear usually associated with the thought of a threat or something going wrong in the future, but can also arise from something happening in the moment. Every person experiences feelings of anxiety many times throughout their lifetime. For example, one may feel anxious about a job interview, receiving results on an exam, financial issues or getting married. At stressful times like these, it is a completely normal reaction to have some degree of anxiety.
However, it becomes a mental health issue if the feeling of anxiety becomes consistent and gets in the way of one’s daily functioning.
If you find yourself worrying excessively about a lot of different things, and feel as if you can’t control it, it is possible you have an anxiety disorder. Being anxious to such an extent can make you feel tired, irritable and restless constantly. There are many different types of anxiety disorders in students like normal anxiety disorder, panic attacks, social anxiety, separation anxiety and phobia.
