In brief: Feeling anxious

Several causes for anxiety, from physiological to psychosomatic to psychological.
Best to start with full assessment by your family doctor to rule out physical causes, then psychiatrist to complete the assessment & provide treatment recommendations.

In brief: Stay active

Exercise is a great way to relieve stress.
Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.
