Stress is a part of life. Often, it stems from facing a challenge: a job interview, a test, too many things on a to-do list, and too little time.
The right dose of stress can be a good thing. It can give you a boost of energy or make you more alert. Once you’re through the challenge, it usually goes away.
Anxiety, on the other hand, is the response we have to stress. It’s a normal reaction to feeling under threat, coping with stressful events, or going through big changes. Sometimes, you may feel anxious for no clear reason. It can leave you with a feeling of dread that doesn’t go away.
Stress and anxiety can have many of the same symptoms:
- Intense worry
- Headaches or pain
- High blood pressure
- Trouble sleeping
The difference: Stress comes and goes, whereas anxiety doesn’t always go away.
If constant anxiety keeps you from living your life the way you want to, it may be related to another mental health issue, like panic attacks or PTSD symptoms. In that case, treatment can help.
