Stress and Sleep

Psychologists view stress differently from anxiety and panic attacks. Simply put, stress occurs when the object of our nervousness, anger, or frustration is posing a current threat. If those feelings remain after the threat (or stressor) is gone, then what we are experiencing is anxiety—"a feeling of fear, dread, and uneasiness," according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

Panic attacks are like anxiety: They are a response to an unclear or non-present threat. But rather than being long lasting, panic attacks only last for a few minutes. And instead of being a general fear, they make us feel like we have lost control of the situation entirely. We might even feel like we are having a heart attack.
