Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It helps one deal with a tense situation in the office, study harder for an exam, keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps one cope. But when anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it has become a disabling disorder.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder is characterized by persistent, excessive and unrealistic worry about everyday things. This worry goes on every day, possibly all day. People with an anxiety disorder feel their worrying is beyond their control and can't be turned "off." They often expect the worst, even when there is no good reason for concern. Their excessive worrying is often about health, family, money or work. This worry is hard to control, and occurs on more days than not for at least six months. The unrelenting worry interferes with every day living and can affect all areas of life, including social, work/school and family.

The symptoms may include:

  • Recurrent and unpredictable panic attacks,
  • Persistent fears
  • Unrealistic worries
  • Triggered by life threatening event
  • Picking at self and others
  • Panic attacks


  • Consider life style (exercise, bathing, massage), diet, friends and family.
  • Beware of alcohol, drug use including smoking, excessive sex, intake of tea and coffee
  • Use relaxation techniques-yoga, meditation
  • Consult a counsellor
