Stress and Anxiety

What is the difference between stress and anxiety?

Stress and anxiety are often connected, although it is possible to experience one without the other.

Stress is our response to something that we perceive to be a threat or that we are fearful of. It is often a short-term response to a specific event.

Most people feel stressed at some point in their life. But if that stress begins to affect your life in the long-term and impact the way you behave, it might be time to seek extra help.

Anxiety is our emotional reaction to stress and can last long after the event that triggered it. Feeling persistently worried about what may happen or your ability to cope are signs of anxiety.

Anxiety can be general or related to something more specific, such as a particular social situation or person or a phobia.
