The American Psychological Association describes anxiety as an
emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts
and physical changes like increased blood pressure. People
struggling with anxiety disorders often experience repetitive
and intrusive thoughts, constant fear and worrying, avoidance
of certain situations, and more.
According to the National Institute of Health, 31% of U.S.
adults will experience an anxiety disorder in their lifetime.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cites 3
out of 10 people have experienced an increase in anxiety
symptoms as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
