Ways to deal with anxiety

Anxiety is the most common mental health disorder worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), one in thirteen people around the world live with an anxiety disorder. Sweaty hands, elevated heart palpitations, non-stop thinking, and insomnia are some of the unwelcome symptoms that can make everyday life-debilitating – So, finding a safe method to manage symptoms is a critical concern for many. Anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax and Valium may offer quick-acting relief but are also addictive and have many serious side effects. That’s why is important to find natural ways to help reduce anxiety - Here are a few ideas:

: Studies have shown that regular exercise can work to control anxiety in some people – even a 10-minute walk can make a difference. Exercise helps alleviate stress and calm the mind by stimulating chemicals in the brain called endorphins. They create a feeling of calm and positive mood.

Yoga: will not stop the source of anxiety but it will help you to slow down. Yoga works by reducing perceived anxiety, lowering your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathe more easily. 

Deep breathing and meditation: these techniques can manage anxiety and panic attacks when practice regularly. Deep breathing increases the supply of oxygen to your brain and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes a state of calmness. About 30 minutes of mediation each day may improve anxiety and depression. 

Limit your Caffeine and Alcohol: caffeine, alcohol, and other substances like energy drinks or sugary beverages can stimulate the nervous system and increase anxiety. When feeling anxious it is important to try to avoid these substances or limit the amount considerably. 

Eat healthily and regularly: skipping meals can lead to low blood sugar and low blood sugar can trigger anxiety. This happens because the body produces more cortisol in response to stress. So, when feeling anxious try to abstain from fasting or diets that require very low-calorie count, as you will be more prone to feeling anxiety. 

Get enough sleep: adequate sleep helps the body deal with anxiety and stress. Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night, lack of sleep can lead to anxiety disorders. 

Stay connected: practicing social distancing might trigger isolation and loneliness, which can exacerbate anxiety. So, it’s important to stay connected as best as we can even as we cut in-person socializing. Make it a priority to stay connected with friends and family, call them, schedule a zoom or a skype – social media is a powerful tool too!
