Anxiety is a normal part of life. We all feel anxious from time to time. Anxiety can be useful as it can help us to cope with stressful situations, such as sitting an exam.

However for some people anxiety can interfere with their life and get in the way of study, work and relationships. If this sounds like you, it may be a good idea to talk to someone who you trust about how you are feeling. There as many ways you can learn to manage your anxiety so you can achieve your study, work and personal goals.
