When was the last time that you felt calm, composed and happy in your skin? It is too long if you can’t quickly recall when.
These days, everything feels like a little bit too much. We go to bed thinking about our tomorrow’s to-do list, the angry partner sleeping next to us (or one who never called,) that unsettled debt at the bank, friends who have become distant, and so many other things that we can’t even keep up. Overwhelmed, we let the negative emotions build up quickly, leaving us feeling powerless, devastated and stuck. And, before you know it, your heart is beating fast, the room is spinning, your breathing gets rapid and shallow, you feel tears building up in the core of your throat, and you think “this is it, this is how I’m going to die.” You won’t. Everyone who’s ever had an anxiety attack knows they are survivable and even preventable if you know how to handle yourself.
Whether you are just freaking out or have a full-blown anxiety disorder, here are a few natural ways you can get your anxiety under control without using medication.
Take Magnesium Supplements
One of the leading deficiencies in adults, lack of magnesium in the body can be the cause of musical tension and irritated nervous system. If you often feel like your whole body is in pain and that you’re easily triggered; try taking magnesium supplements. It should help regulate GABA and hormone function that is vital for promoting relaxation and calming the brain.
Magnesium is usually used to help with:
- Muscles aches
- Poor digestion
- Insomnia, i.e., trouble sleeping
- Sexual health
Mindfulness meditation is beneficial for everyone who has a full mind, lives in stressful conditions, experiences consistent anxiety symptoms and generally has a problem focusing. Meditation is one of the best natural remedies for anxiety, and it should help everyone with anxiety to face their stress challenges better and build a healthy coping mechanism that isn’t focused on denial but instead on acceptance, solution, and release of the problem.
Try guided meditation to reduce your cortisol levels, boost your productivity at home and work, improve your sleep quality, and treat your anxiety.
Find a Support System
In your effort to overcome anxiety, relying on your friends and family for immediate support is a fantastic way to battle the problem. If you are feeling like you would need professional help, talk to a therapist to dig deep and find the root of the problem that’s causing you to feel this way. You may discover Cognitive Behavioral Therapy very useful as it focuses on a person’s causal thoughts in determining how we act and feel. A licensed and skillful therapist works with you to help you change your thought patterns and reactions, to lead quality, anxiety-free life.
Find What You Love (and Don’t Tell Anyone)
In the world of today, we get so preoccupied with everyday activities that we often forget to take care of ourselves. Anxiety can be one of your mind’s ways to alert you it’s time you started treating yourself better! So, to naturally reduce your anxiety attacks, start doing things that make you happy. Make a list of everything that’s bringing joy to your life (from binge-watching your favorite series to going hiking or sleeping) and find the time in your week to do it. No excuses! Why? Because you come first and you want to keep yourself inspired!
Anxiety is a typical response to dangerous situations or stress, and it is one of the most prevalent mental health conditions. Follow these few tips and see your life change for the better.
