I read a number of news websites each day at at least once a week I see an article that features anxiety. It’s making me wonder how common anxiety actually is. Reading the comment section of these articles features a lot of people claiming to suffer with anxiety. If I look at it from a selfish perspective the more people that I read suffer with anxiety the more I feel I’m not alone but what we should really be thinking is why is it so common now. Is it our lifestyles? Are our lives becoming more stressful? I can’t say for sure obviously but all I know is that if statistics show that 1 in 4 people are suffering from anxiety in their life time surely there must be an explanation. I’d love to hear everyone else’s thoughts on this matter.
