I am a writer, an author, speaker. I talk about overcoming anxiety and depression, developing a confident mindset, and awakening.

Anxiety Tips that you Should be Following

We all have to deal with small bouts of anxiety from time-to-time but those will quickly pass. However, some individuals have to deal with severe bouts of anxiety. Their heart starts beating rapidly while fear takes over. All of a sudden, every fiber of their being screams at them to run away so they frantically look for an exit. Sometimes supplements for anxiety will work but others require a more strategic approach. Whatever the case, severe anxiety is quite dangerous and will cripple you at the worst possible time. If you are not following these tips, then start today!

Learn to Relax

It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily grind of life that you lose the ability to stop and relax. Relaxation is not sitting in front of a television watching your favorite show. That can actually create tension. True relaxation is found through meditation, deep breathing exercises, and even yoga. All three have a positive, calming effect on the mind.

Nutrition and Supplements for Anxiety

Focusing on nutrition and using supplements for anxiety can provide your body with the power it needs to handle anxiety. Choose whole fruits and lean protein over junk food. Avoid fast food at all costs. But supplements are going to provide your mind with the biggest boost. This is a long-term strategy that you will need to combine with other methods.

Connect with Other People

When dealing with anxiety, it’s important that you don’t isolate yourself. Spend quality time with your friends and family. Being around others has a way of making us feel supported and boosts our confidence. Just make sure that you are connecting with the right people. Associating with overly negative or pessimistic individuals might have the opposite effect. Also if you are feeling anxious about something specific, then try talking to a friend or close relative about it. It reminds you that you’re not alone.

Bask in the Wonder of Mother Nature

Taking a walk in the woods or hiking up a mountain trail provides your body with much-needed exercise while also giving your mind some peace. You should choose somewhere you feel safe though. Hiking and bike riding are both really amazing choices. Maybe even see if a friend wants to join you. Make a whole day of it. Nature has amazing therapeutic abilities.

Focus on the Good Things

Negative thoughts fuel anxiety so training your mind to focus on the good things takes away a lot of its power over you. Everyone has both good and bad events in their daily life. Unfortunately, the bad stands out so you have to train your mind to start focusing on the good. Positive affirmations are a great way to counter this. Repeat positive phrases every morning and just before bed every night.

Learn More About Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal part of life for everyone but when it becomes extreme, it is a sign that you might have a disorder. Severe anxiety is not just gonna go away. You’ll have to take steps to ease it. Always start by seeking professional help. Take supplements for anxiety and add meditation to your overall wellness plan.

      I was diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and depression following a physical health crisis that lasted over ten years. When surgery finally was done to take away the heath issue, mental health issues set in. I didn't know how to live in a healthy body. I entered the mental health unit as a result of feeling suicidal and began the long road to recovery. At first, medications were necessary, then as I began to understand the thought processes and triggers of my anxiety and depression, I was able to eventually go off the medication and help others work through their issues. The things outlined in this article have become my lifeline for healthy living.
