Young adulthood presents a myriad of distinctive challenges and experiences. Amid these, anxiety often emerges as an unwelcome companion, showcasing itself in diverse ways and impacting both mental and physical well-being. Symptoms of anxiety can extend beyond mere nervousness, influencing your cognition and overall health. If you suspect you are encountering anxiety symptoms, there are key signs to be mindful of.

Managing anxiety can be challenging, and if you’re a teenager in need of support, consider our specialized teen anxiety treatment program. Reach out to Inward Healthcare at 888.576.1875 to explore our outpatient mental health programs tailored for young individuals in California.

Common Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. It can affect young people in profound ways, influencing their physical well-being, thoughts, and emotions. Recognizing these symptoms is the first step toward managing anxiety effectively.

Some common anxiety symptoms to look out for include:

Physical Symptoms of Anxiety

  • Increased heart rate – A common sign that may feel like your heart is racing
  • Sweating – Especially during moments of panic or stress
  • Trembling or shaking – Anxiety can cause noticeable shaking
  • Fatigue – Feeling unusually tired can also be a symptom of anxiety

Psychological Symptoms of Anxiety

  • Persistent worry – Worrying excessively about different aspects of life
  • Difficulty concentrating – Challenges with focusing on tasks at hand
  • Irritability – Feeling easily agitated or annoyed

Identifying anxiety in young people requires patience, understanding, and open communication. If someone you love is experiencing anxiety, it’s about creating a space where they feel comfortable sharing their feelings without fear of judgment. Look for changes in behavior, such as withdrawing from activities they once enjoyed or expressing constant worry about seemingly small concerns.

When to Seek Help for Anxiety

If you recognize these signs of anxiety within yourself, know that help is available. Anxiety and its related conditions are treatable, paving the way for improvement in your quality of life.

Seeking professional help is a sign of strength. If signs of anxiety are impacting daily life, making it difficult to function or enjoy things, it’s time to reach out. Inward Healthcare is committed to providing accessible, empathetic support for young people and their families. Our tailored programs address the unique needs of teenagers and incorporate evidence-based treatments to facilitate healing.

Managing Anxiety

While everyone experiences anxiety differently, there are some general strategies that can help manage signs of anxiety:

  • Practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or meditation
  • Engage in regular physical exercise to reduce stress and release feel-good endorphins
  • Connect with friends and family for support and positive social interactions
  • Set realistic goals and prioritize tasks to avoid feeling overwhelmed
  • Seek professional help through therapy, counseling, or medication if deemed necessary by a mental health professional

Managing anxiety is an ongoing process, and it’s essential to have patience and compassion for oneself. Remember that seeking help is not a sign of weakness but rather a step towards improved mental health.

Empowerment comes from having the right tools to manage anxiety. We encourage young people to explore creative expression, mindfulness exercises, and physical activity as innovative ways to cope. These strategies can provide a sense of control and relief.
