  • Curious as to whether they could have anxiety
  • Wanting to understand the signs and symptoms of anxiety
  • Looking for anxiety support and treatment options

Most people, at some point in their life, will find themselves asking, “Do I have anxiety?”

Which isn’t surprising. Anxiety conditions are prevalent in Australia, affecting approximately 1 in 6 people annually and 1 in 4 people over their lifetime.

Anxiety varies greatly between individuals, making each experience unique. Media depictions of anxiety often paint an ‘extreme’ version of common symptoms, leading many to assume their own anxiety ‘isn’t that bad’ and doesn’t require further support.

But the symptoms associated with anxiety – no matter how severe – can profoundly impact overall wellbeing, hindering the ability to lead a healthy and satisfying life. Taking positive action to understand your anxiety symptoms is a significant step – and self-assessment is a great starting point.

Understanding Anxiety: Exploring the Symptoms and Impact

Anxiety is a complex and widespread mental health condition that affects countless individuals worldwide. It manifests through a range of physical and emotional symptoms that vary between individuals in terms of intensity and duration:

  • Physically, individuals may experience a racing heart, shortness of breath, trembling, sweating, and stomach discomfort.
  • Emotionally, anxiety can lead to excessive worry, restlessness, irritability, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbances, and fatigue.

The impact of anxiety extends beyond immediate signs, significantly affecting daily life and overall well-being. It can hamper your ability to function at work or school, maintain relationships, and engage in everyday activities.

The Importance of Self-Assessment for Anxiety: Taking the First Step

Self-assessment empowers you to take control of your well-being and seek help. Through self-assessment, you can examine your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, gaining a deeper understanding of your experiences.

We all experience some anxiety as a part of our normal lives, making it difficult to determine what’s ‘normal’ and what might need further support.
Self-assessment helps you become more self-aware, enabling you to differentiate anxiety symptoms from everyday stress. It can also help you understand your emotional wellbeing over time, identifying changes in anxiety levels and potential triggers.

If you repeatedly ask, “Do I have anxiety?” self-assessment is an excellent step towards formulating a plan for self-care and effective mental health management.
