Anxiety is an emotion characterized by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by nervous behaviour such as pacing back and forth, somatic complaints, and rumination. It is the subjectively unpleasant feelings of dread over anticipated events, such as the feeling of imminent death. Anxiety is not the same as fear, which is a response to a real or perceived immediate threat, whereas anxiety is the expectation of future threat. It is often accompanied by muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue and problems in concentration. Anxiety can be appropriate, but when experienced regularly the individual may suffer from an anxiety disorder.

Being an anxious person and a college student myself, I have found that you can reduce your anxiety by making sure to do your school work as early as you can and never wait until the last minute because eventually the work starts to build up, and so does your anxiety. Also, it is very important to exercise regularly to stay healthy and reduce stress. Always remember that school work should come first before any other activities students tend to participate in through college.

One way to stop a panic attack is to focus on what is real and physical around you, basically to get yourself out of your head and fake sense of danger. So you would for example try to focus on the tree out the window, or the trash can by your desk and think about what how big it is or what size it is.
