Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life, whether you face a challenge at work or school or have to make important decisions about life. Anxiety goes beyond everyday worries and fears. Those with anxiety disorders experience anxiety all the time, making it hard to perform what should be simple, everyday activities.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 28.8 percent of all adults in the U.S. age 18 to 54 have experienced some form of anxiety disorder at some point in their lives. That’s nearly one in every three people.
