3. Poor Concentration

Poor concentration refers to a difficulty to focus on tasks or think clearly. Importantly, several medical conditions can cause poor concentration, including many anxiety disorders. Specifically, people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder often report that they experience difficulty concentrating due to excessive worrying. In addition, they can also report a sensation of “their mind going blank”, which happens when attention fails to convey any stimuli into conscious awareness.
