The anxious person experiences a general sense of apprehension and worry that considerably alters normal life. The most frequent worries centre on interpersonal relationships, work, finances, health and the future in general. This state escapes the control of affected persons and tends to disable them.

Anxiety may appear without any apparent physiological manifestation or with somatic evidence that may reach the level of panic attack (find more information. The symptoms of anxiety appear in the table below.

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health problems and they are on the rise. Unfortunately, the conditions of life today seem to favour these problems and cause much suffering to those affected and to people near them. 

It is therefore necessary to understand how to prevent and cure anxiety as outlined in this unit.


How to prevent anxiety

Symptoms of anxiety disorders often remain latent until a stressful event

takes place and a crisis develops. There are easy preventive tasks capable of avoiding and also soothing the symptoms when they appear:

• Talk about your problems. 

• Seek the close company of people. 

• Interact with a person or persons to share your experiences widely.

Those living alone run a higher risk of anxiety. If this is your case, make sure you keep good relations with a member of your family or with a friend who can meet your companionship needs.
