Stress Management: Options for Stress and Anxiety

A fine line exists between anxiety and stress.

Who’s not worried about something these days? Worry comes from both stress and anxiety, but there’s an important difference between the two. Stress is worrying about actual problems, while anxiety has more to do with worrying about possible problems. Too much anxiety can keep you from enjoying your life. This video can help you tell if anxiety is an issue for you.

Anxiety-Stress Management Home Treatment and Self-Examination

Screening and treatment for anxiety or stress can take many forms. Sometimes, home treatment may be the best option.

The Gritman Online Clinic also offers a Self-Test for Anxiety that helps determine the severity of your anxiety and when to consult with a professional.
