This is what it melts down to ‘How to get rid of anxiety?’
Some anxiety is a normal part and parcel of life with the often-chaotic world. Anxiety isn’t all bad, though! What it does, is makes you aware of danger, usually motivates you to stay organized and prepared and helps you to manage risks. But then when anxiety becomes a daily struggle, its time for action.
I’m pretty sure these tips might help you cure anxiety. Read all of them and start working.
Notice that these tips will also focus on YOU and the change within you as in those subtle changes which will make a mammoth difference. There is no diet included but if you want some healthy remedies, you need to check this out.
Find a mantra
I use positive affirmations every day to help manage my mood. I also have a different mantra that I repeat to myself when I’m feeling anxious.
I usually talk to myself about it. This helps me feel calm especially if I’m not in my zone or feeling edgy. I also remind myself that I’ve managed it before and I can do that now and acknowledge that it’s all going to be okay as long as I’m patient with myself.
Have some alone time
Having alone time is essential for me as mentioned earlier, and it helps me recharge my batteries and relax and evaluate myself. If you’re feeling anxious, then find a reason to be alone. You could just take a walk to buy some stuff, or while going to the gym or could be anything. Just start loving yourself.
These are all clever little ways to find alone time without seeming rude. It’s also an opportunity to practice mindfulness, which can reduce symptoms of anxiety and panic.
Talking to someone who gets it:
If your feelings of anxiety are making time tough for you then you should speak to either a health professional or talking to friends can help too. I have friends who have anxiety disorder too. When I’m feeling really bad, I do the same. Hit up my pal to seek help.
They might have a new hack I can try, or they can point out something that might have acted as a trigger. But sometimes it’s just nice to vent to someone who knows how it feels to be in my shoes.
Walking it off
At times, when you’re encountering anxiety, it’s because of build-up of adrenaline. Just a walk down the lane can help use up that extra adrenaline.
I at times, feel a bit wayward if I don’t have some quality time with myself, so walking alone is an excellent way for me to feel easy.
Also, walking in the fresh air can improve your well-being. Some studies show that people who took a walking trip in a wooded area had lowered production of stress hormones than when they remained in the city.
Writing it out
One of the worst aspects of anxiety is not knowing why you feel nervous in the first place.
That’s when writing can help. It can be an effective way to explore how you feel, especially if talking out loud feels impossible.
Another study found that anxious test participants who wrote a few notes before the test about how they were feeling and what they were thinking performed better than those who didn’t.
Accepting your anxiety
Acceptance is a very big quality to have and Accepting your anxiety (instead of feeling ashamed or frustrated by it) will actually help you feel less anxious.
It’s here now, and acknowledging that instead of fighting it frees you up to learn how to manage it. Accepting it doesn’t mean giving up, either. It means you stop spending energy berating yourself for being anxious and instead learn what works for you when it comes to self-soothing.
Give praise when you make positive changes
