Anxiety and depression are two very different emotions. Though they share some similarities, a person who inhibits or overemphasizes her expression of some emotions is suffering from a(n), not the other. In this blog post we will explore what each emotional state entails so you can better understand your own mental health needs! *Anxiety is a feeling of intense and overwhelming fear. It can be accompanied by physical symptoms such as shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, trembling hands, dry mouth, nausea or dizziness.* *Depression is an emotional state that displays feelings of sadness with loss of interest in activities once found pleasurable or rewarding. It also includes feelings of grief over the end of relationships and career disappointments.* Both depression and anxiety are severe mental illnesses that affect people’s cognitive abilities- how they think about themselves and their future prospects (i.e., self-esteem). These conditions often become more prevalent when faced with certain triggers which vary from person to person but may include: death/illness; work stress
