Often when I’m working with clients they ask me about the difference between stress and anxiety. I hear, “Everyone is stressed out so why can’t I handle this?” or “Why do I always feel tense?”. In a culture like ours where everyone is trying to do everything at once stress can feel pretty normal. It’s difficult to see when that tense and overwhelming feeling is coming from anxiety and not stress. Here are a few clues that what you are experiencing is anxiety:
If you relate to these clues and are wondering whether you are struggling with anxiety, then you are not alone! You also don’t have to continue struggling with these thoughts and feelings. There are a lot of tools that can help including mindfulness techniques.
If you or a loved one is struggling with issues related to anxiety, then we’d like to help! If you’d like to talk to a therapist about anxiety or learn more about how therapy can help, then feel free to contact the Summit Counseling Center at 678-787-0958.
