What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a normal and healthy emotion. It involves physical sensations (e.g. increased heart rate and feeling shaky), thoughts about danger or threat (e.g. worrying about getting sick or not getting on well with others) and behaviours (e.g. avoiding situations or seeking reassurance from others).
For some people, anxiety can become problematic. Worries can start to feel uncontrollable and people can start avoiding important activites. There are many different sorts of problematic anxiety.
