Anxiety is the body’s response to stress which everyone experiences quite frequently in today’s world. It may be a reaction to a single or isolated incident or event and it can be short lived or continue for a prolonged period of time depending upon the source of worry. Long lasting anxiety can have several negative impacts upon the health and can lead to high blood pressure, headaches and unnecessary fear and nervousness. It also deprives one of the ability to concentrate as a result of which work as well as relationships on the social as well as the professional front suffer.
Anxiety can also cause heart palpitations, muscle tension, profuse sweating, dry mouth, jittery feeling in the stomach, sense of impending doom and quivering nerves. Prolonged anxiety induces the secretion of certain chemicals which can damage the body’s organs and affect the proper functioning of the brain and the nervous system.
