Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a mental and behavioral disorder, specifically an anxiety disorder characterized by excessive, uncontrollable and irrational worry about everyday things [2]. People with GAD may feel restless, tense, or on edge [5], have difficulty focusing [1], experience recurring thoughts about a source of worry such as finances [4] and have a constant feeling of being overwhelmed [6]. Symptoms can include fatigue, restlessness, irritability, muscle tension and difficulty sleeping. Treatment typically involves psychotherapy and medications such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety drugs. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been found to be particularly effective in treating GAD[3][7].
