Anxiety can be a perfectly normal emotion. All of us experience anxiety at some point in our lives, and in most cases fear can be explained. Prolonged stress or doing too many things at once can cause anxiety. Positive things can also trigger fear, such as a new relationship, a new job or moving house.

Anxiety can also improve performance for a while. However, intense anxiety has the opposite effect. It can be debilitating and cause work or study related problems, or problems with socializing and major problems in relationships. 

An anxiety disorder refers to a persistent and excessive state of "emotional disability" that can be debilitating and have serious negative effects on daily life. Anxiety disorders are a popular topic and one of the most common mental illnesses in Switzerland.

Healthy sleep has been shown to be the most important factor in predicting longevity, even more influential than exercise, diet, or genetics. Unfortunately, people who suffer from anxiety disorders usually suffer from insomnia. 

Common symptoms of an anxiety disorder are: 

  •  Feeling restless, agitated, or nervous

  • Tire easily

  • have trouble concentrating

  • Be angry

  • have a headache, muscle aches, stomach aches, or unexplained pains

  • Difficulty controlling feelings of worry

  • Sleep problems, such as difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep or sleeping too much in the evening. 

Anxiety disorders are generally treated with therapy, medication, or both. Fortunately, there are many ways to treat anxiety.
