Now, learning handling your anxiety is something that takes time BUT it is possible, I assure you of this and I’m going to tell you about the ways I do so.
- Pick an item and focus on its detail
Whenever you feel like there’s just too much going on in your head and there’s that loud pounding in your chest just look around- or don’t.
Look at your hands and study the lines and your nail beds. Study that lovely crafted table.
It is important that you do this because it allows you to take back control of your mind by ignoring every other thought that is bombarding you.
- Remember to breathe. THIS IS MORE ESSENTIAL THAN YOU THINK
This is something I really neglected because it just seemed too simple but now I do it all the time.
Take a nice slow breath and exhale through your mouth. Breathe from your diaphragm.
Trust me, sometimes all it takes is a moment to sink into the moment.
- Keep clear of unnecessary anxious moments
Now I know its not entirely possible to avoid those moments but you do have some control. This is something I have repeatedly traced.
Watching a movie or reading a book can trigger so much when the suspenseful music starts playing .
Believe me, I’ve been there. Try to take breaks- a lot. remind yourself that its all in your head and there’s nothing to be anxious about.
Those breaks between shows were a miracle for me and it’ll be for you too!
- Give your body the nutrients it deserves
There’s many research and articles that proves that nutrition plays a big part in mental health like this one.
When I stopped taking my supplements for 6 months. I became agitated,tired and felt weak.
Just 2 weeks of taking fish oil capsules and daily multivitamins, I felt like a whole new person.
So make sure you take your supplements. Nurture your body and it will repay you
- Meditation music/ hypnosis for anxiety
This is something that I’m still new to but boy I love it already. I listen sleep hypnosis for anxiety.
This is great because it’s just allowing your mind to do tap into its subconscious and work on your anxiety as you sleep.
Best part is, you will always wake up the next day filled with relaxation and inner peace.
Check here for my favorite sleep hypnosis YouTube channel and here for meditation music.
THESE ARE JUST PRACTICES THAT WORK FOR ME. I AM NOT A DOCTOR OR PSYCHIATRIST. NOTHING IN THIS BLOG SHOULD BE TAKEN AS MEDICAL ADVICE BUT AS AN OPINION.
