"Don’t we all wish we could feel calmer? More at peace? Less worried? Anxiety—or what we often refer to as ongoing feelings of stress, worry and fear—is a very common reason to go to therapy."
"Of course, there are some things to try at home first. A good start would include regular exercise, healthy eating, getting plenty of rest and reducing stimulants like caffeine. Some other good habits include quiet reading, time with friends and enjoying a hobby. A regular practice of meditation is also helpful to many people."
"For adults, symptoms may include difficulty sleeping or concentrating, uncomfortable feelings of panic or fear, recurring nightmares, phobias or physical symptoms such as a pounding heart or feeling sick to your stomach. In children, watch for sleep troubles, nightmares, constant worries about family, friends and activities, panic and tantrums at separation from parents that extend beyond pre-school years or frequent physical complaints like stomach aches and headaches."
