Have you ever felt worried and tense seemingly out of nowhere? This feeling could be the result of little things triggering your anxiety without you knowing. Every day, minor stressors from daily life, the internet, and even the food you eat can add up to a pretty serious amount of anxiety. For instance, simply taking a break to enjoy a cup of coffee and catch up on Twitter news can leave you feeling more stressed than relaxed. People who deal with anxiety disorders should know about these triggers.
For many people, specific instances or places cause these fears, which are known as triggers. For instance, if a person is afraid of plane travel, then stepping foot in an airport could cause trigger feelings of anxiety. But triggers don't have to involve the biggest fears of your life; in fact, they can accumulate slowly over the course of a day. Here are some of the more common daily stressors to keep in mind.
