Anxiety may consist of a feeling of agitation or yearning to
face a certain situation that is ill anticipated and/or impending. In essence, it can best be described by a person suffering from a state of mental unrest. The level at which anxiety is felt depends on how the person chooses to react to a given situation. The most common causes of anxiety usually originate from issues dealing with relationships, schoolwork, and occupational frustrations. There may not be a simple cure to alleviate feelings of anxiety, but there are remedies that have proven beneficial for coping.

Physical activity may be used as a way of relieving the severity of anxiety. It allows for pent up emotions to be worked off instead of built up. When you are physically active your mental state can be altered when forced to focus on the exertion of the task at hand. For the most part, this technique should only be used as a temporary solution for emotional distress. Taking a mile long run may cause you to feel less anxious, but still does not function effectively towards dealing directly with your frustrations.

One of the best ways to tackle the thoughts and feelings of
anxiety is to directly approach the source of your dissatisfaction head on. By essentially making your difficulty known to the source you eliminate that which anxiety is made up of (which is waiting to face the problem). This may seem like an obvious solution, but it is one that is frequently considered as a last resort. If, on the other hand, the problem is one that cannot be confronted, then you must realize this and move on. At this instant there is apparently nothing you or anyone can do or say (believe it or not there are scenarios where this is the case).

In conclusion, anxiety is what most people consider to be a useless emotion. If strong feelings of anxiety persist or are frequent than one should contact a counsellor or even peer support group for guidance. This will not only help others understand your behaviour, but it will give you a chance to truly confront your problems / fears. Robert Schuller once said "Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly."
