1. You worry way too much
Sometimes, worrying is helpful, especially when you have to complete certain tasks, but if this feeling becomes a thing in your life, you should get in touch with your doctor as soon as possible. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the most common mental illness in our country is anxiety disorder.
“Worrying enough to heighten your awareness that you have a test and that it requires studying, that’s good, and that’s adaptive,” says Aaron Fisher, PhD, assistant professor of clinical psychology at the University of California, Berkeley.
“If, though, your worry is so great that it blows right past preparation and actually freezes you in your tracks and you don’t study because you’re so worried that you feel frozen or stuck, that’s problematic,” he added. So, if you consider that your anxiety isn’t helping you at all, maybe it’s time to talk to a professional.
