When stress really hits you, it reaches to the core of our being and it starts affecting most of your life - work, physical health, relationships and essentially your wellbeing.
We all experience anxiety on occasions and the feeling typically passes after the situation that caused us to feel anxious is over. Anxiety is part of life but it becomes problematic when we are always anxious, worried or feeling overwhelmed without a particular reason. Ultimately, anxiety makes it hard to cope with daily life.
Factors that offset the trigger to panic attacks can include internal conflict(s), loss of someone dear, an ongoing battle with illness OR fear even after recovery and even injuries from accidents or surgery could trigger panic in an individual.
Contributing factors of depression have been found to include a combination of genetic, biological and psychological factors. These can be a stressful period of major life changes, a personal or family history of depression or caused by certain illnesses and / or medications.
