Mental Health: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Checklist...🧠





People with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) experience constant, chronic, and unsubstantiated worry,😟 often about health, family,👪 money,💰or work. 👷This worrying goes on every day, possibly all day. It disrupts social activities and interferes with work, school,🏫 or family.



Check any of the following that apply to you:


  • Muscle tension

  • Fatigue

  • Restlessness

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Irritability

  • Edginess

  • Gastrointestinal discomfort

(Anxiety and Depression Association of America)



If you experience at least three of these symptoms, you may have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Only a trained professional can diagnose GAD.



These symptoms may be related to other conditions. It is important to discuss these and other relevant concerns with a trained professional.



It's important to get both mental and physical checkups regularly.😊

"Ashwagandha is perhaps best known as a natural antidepressant and stress reliever. It has been used in traditional medicine for centuries and research backs up the hype. A study published in the Nepal Medical College Journal found that Ashwagandha significantly reduced depression in study participants. Other research published in the journal Phytomedicine demonstrated that a main compound found in the prized herb “support[s] the use of [Ashwagandha] as a mood stabilizer in clinical conditions of anxiety and depression in Ayurveda.”



Ashwagandha is generally well tolerated by most, but you should talk to your doctor, especially if you are taking medications that could potentially interact with it and cause harm. It is not safe to take if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If taken in large doses, it can cause an upset stomach and diarrhea, and, in rare cases, it can cause damage to the liver.
