Anxiety is a condition that all of us experience at certain stages of our lives, even if only for a few minutes. In certain situations, anxiety is commonplace and healthy. However, if the body "exaggerates" this anxiety (if there is not really a logical reason for the anxiety feeling) we are talking about an anxiety disorder (distress).
