While anxiety symptoms vary from person to person, in general the body reacts in a very specific way to anxiety. When you feel anxious, your body goes on high alert, looking for possible danger and activating your fight or flight responses. As a result, some common symptoms of anxiety include:

    • nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
    • feelings of danger, panic, or dread
    • rapid heartbeat and rapid breathing
    • difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
    • insomnia
    • gastrointestinal problems
