Tips For Stress and Anxiety!

Do you ever feel nervous, worried and tense on a regular basis? If so, you might be suffering from an anxiety disorder. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you may be among the 40 million Americans believed to endure such a disorder.

While many individuals take prescription drugs and other medications to deal with their anxiety disorders, those drugs can have negative side effects – and in some cases simply don’t get the job done.

Thankfully, unlike some illnesses, millions of people can and are managing their anxiety issues with the help of a balanced diet, proper exercise and some tried and proven methods of relaxation.

If you like so many others, suffer from anxiety and you can’t or won’t take drugs, you should try these few tips. Don’t be afraid to use a combination of these techniques to deal with your anxiety.

Don’t Avoid Your Worries, Embrace Them

A study published on January 14, 2011, issue the journal Science, in cooperation with the National Science Foundation, suggests that we should embrace our worries. In the study, researchers asked stressed-out students to write down their fears for a ten-minute period. Researchers discovered that writing down our worries eases anxiety. Students who embraced their concerns head-on increased their test scores by a full grade point average.

Another study found that stress without confrontation can actually reduce our brain’s processing power, something known as working memory. Clearing our thoughts helps us to function at a higher level.

 

Eat A Well Balanced Diet

Anxiety can lead to a lack of focus, which in turn leads to more anxiety, and what you put into your body can have a definite influence on your brain.

Instead of a soda, try a glass of water or a decaf tea. Avoid caffeine and any other foods or beverages that put you on edge. Doctors routinely recommend fiber and protein with every meal, and a reduction in sodium and processed foods. 

 

Get A Good Night’s Sleep To Avoid Anxiety

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America suggests getting a good night’s sleep to avoid becoming anxious throughout the day. The organization notes that anxiety and sleep deprivation often go hand-in-hand. If you are finding yourself suffering from insomnia, you might want to talk with a professional about your sleep patterns.

Turn off the TV well before bed, read a book, and give yourself some time to decompress without too much stimulation right before hitting the sack. Sleep helps your body distress itself and therefore helps you avoid anxiety attacks. If proper sleep hygiene doesn’t improve your night, talk to a doctor. There may be something more going on.

Get Tense On Purpose With Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Here’s a trick I learned several years ago from a doctor friend; When you feel anxious, get tense. I know that sounds counterproductive but it works. Use a technique known as progressive muscle relaxation. By focusing on tensing each group of muscles, you take your mind off your anxious thoughts, and in turn, you reduce your brain’s ability to think about what is making you anxious. Start at your forehead and slowly tense your body as you work your way down to your toes. Hold each body part for five to ten seconds and then release the tension.

Exercise Daily

Whether you choose yoga or aerobics, a regular workout routine can rapidly reduce stress. According to the Mayo Clinic, regular exercise released endorphins, which help lower stress. But forget the chemical reactions your body will undergo; you also forget about your problems when you are focused on a heart-rate rising workout routine. As an added bonus, as you get in shape, your self-esteem should rise, leading to one less worry in your life.

Get Organized

Mark Banschick, M.D., writes for Psychology Today that organization is an ongoing effort. You don’t simply organize your home and then leave it that way. Instead, you should wake up each day and think about anything that needs to stay organized or re-organize.

This serves two purposes – it keeps your life in order and moving smoothly, and it eases the worries in your head that something has been forgotten or left undone. Keep notes in your smartphone, on your computer and on your calendar.

One thing to watch out for is over-thinking your organizational efforts. Keep telling yourself that you are well-organized and that you always think about what needs to be done. Basically, trick your brain into believing that because you organize your life every day, you are likely not missing anything important that needs to be done.

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – A Professional Solution

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is administered by a professional psychologist, and it has worked wonders for millions of anxiety sufferers. A professional can help you discover the sources of your irrational and self-defeating thoughts, and give you coping mechanisms for dealing with them. The idea behind CBT is that you can learn to be your own therapist, at least when it comes to certain triggers that you didn’t realize were causing your anxiety attacks.

 

Aromatherapy And Anxiety Attacks

The International Journal of Aromatherapy tested a group of people with anxiety disorders by administering 40-minute massages that included essential oils. Their 2004 study found that aromatherapy has many therapeutic benefits for anxiety and depression. The best part about aromatherapy treatments is that they are inexpensive, and can even be administered by a loved one at home. As an added bonus, a massage can relax you on its own. Think of the aid of aromatherapy as a double-dose of anxiety fighting goodness.
