We all experience anxiety periodically. Some of this anxiety can be tied to specific events such as the first day of school, giving a speech or going on a first date. Sheryl Ankrom, black-rose-bielefeld.de's Guide to Panic Disorder, notes that some anxiety can actually be beneficial. "The discomfort anxiety brings in all of these situations is considered normal and even beneficial," she writes. "Anxiety about an upcoming test may cause you to work harder in preparing for the exam. The anxiety you feel when walking through a dark and deserted parking lot to your car will cause you to be alert and cautious of your surroundings, or better yet, get an escort to your vehicle."

Excessive anxiety, however, can cause real problems in multiple areas including school, work and family relationships. If you feel like your anxiety level is too high, then be sure to check out some of the following information:
