“Anxiety” is described in the Oxford English Dictionary as “a nervous feeling caused by the fear that something bad is going to happen and worrying without reason”.
This is a very common condition in those who are unable to assimilate and absorb stress either at work or at home and has been plaguing many, but to treat the condition, it needs to be diagnosed early and the appropriate medication was taken.
Anxiety in its normal condition is something anyone could undergo and it does not mean that every time you feel a sense of anxiety, it is an alarm to go and see the doctor it could be a normal condition and nothing to think or worry much about.
It is only when you are constantly plagued by such a condition and every little thing happening around you draw’s you to fear the consequences of it, that a problem which should be treated by medication would arise.

Some simple remedies to counter anxiety attacks
The above are just a few physical symptoms that should draw your attention to the problem of anxiety and it does not mean that if you are faced with such issues a doctor would be the answer.
On your own you could try to solve the issues by trying in your own way to tackle them, one could be by changing your lifestyle, for instance meeting up with friends after work, if you are pressurized with work overloads.
Talking to your family more than what you would normally do or taking the kids out more often, catch a movie more frequently than you would normally do.
Such slight variations in your lifestyle could take the stress of work away if that would be your problem but if it is a problem at home ensure you spend more time at home without running away from the issues.
You could also try a very simple exercise and that would be by closing your eyes and counting your breath up to ten slowly in a relaxed manner and that you could do anywhere.
If the issue at hand is a major one and you are faced with a situation bordering on an anxiety attack and you know what you would be encountering, sit down and try to relax for a few minutes and shut yourself off from the surroundings.
You could also try some meditation every day in the morning where you could relax your mind prior to starting your day and these are just a few things that you could try out if you are constantly prone to any of the above physical symptoms but if it persists seeing a doctor would be advisable.
