Since we always tend to introduce to people those more medical and thus more exact definitions to certain terms, illnesses, disorders and alike states, this time the emphasis will be on more down-to-earth definitions, in this case the one related to anxiety. Putting those medical and psychological terms aside for a moment, the condition in question can also be described as a state characterized by continuous worry, accompanied by tension that tends to put a tremendous pressure on the person in question. On the other hand, anxiety as such can also be viewed as the way in which our body attempts to alarm us to get ready for the dangerous and potentially harmful moments that might come quite soon.
