Staying active with exercise of some kind will help to burn off energy that your body would put to use to feed your anxiety. Get out for a walk, take a swim or take up aerobics or yoga for positive physical activity. Anything that will feel good as you do it and burn energy is going to help alleviate your anxiety.

 

Try to stay busy as much as you can when you are dealing with anxiety. While meditation and deep breathing exercises are a good idea, other things that keep you idle are not good for you. Staying active will keep your mind off of all the things that are creating your feelings of anxiety.

 

Try creating your own anxious worrying period. Choose a single or two 10 minute spots each day where you can worry and just feel anxious. During this worry period, try focusing only on the anxious, negative thoughts without trying to correct them. The rest of the day should remain anxiety-free.

 

When you are creating your meals, try your best to incorporate as many vegetables as possible. If you are having meat, add a carrot or pea dish to complement your meal. These vegetables are fantastic as they provide you with natural vitamins that are great for improving your mood during the day.

 

Work on having good posture. Having bad posture compresses organs, cuts off circulation and shortens breathing. Many times, it is easy, even under a normal amount of anxiety, to sit in positions that cause harm to our body. Try not to do this, as this will better your health and help decrease the amount of anxiety you endure.

 

Laughter can really help you during the course of the day. If you work or go to school, you will face a lot of stressful situations that require you to put things in perspective. Laughter helps you to control your mood, so that you can stay positive, all day long.

 

Create a list of the things that stress you out every day. Break the list up into things you can change and things you cannot change. Learn to accept the triggers you can't avoid and to avoid the ones you can.

 

Always keep your promises to yourself, as well as, to others. Anxiety can come on from feelings of inadequacy because you make promises to yourself or others that you fear you cannot live up to. If you promise yourself a vacation, for instance, do not let fear and doubt about going, cause you to break another promise to yourself. This will only lead to more anxiety.

 

As stated earlier, the difficulties of life can be greatly increased when you live life with anxiety. Anxiety can immobilize you and keep you from being happy so much of the time. Hopefully, this article has given you some hope of being able to address your issues with anxiety and help you to lead a more rewarding life, free from fear.
