7 Simple Tips To Stop Feeling Anxious

1) Get some exercise

Physical activity helps both body and mind by releasing happy hormones that make us feel good, relieving pain, and boosting our self-esteem.

Exercise is one of the most effective and natural remedies for anxiety, so whatever your mood or motivation level, get some exercise!

2) Get a good night’s sleep

Aim for 7 to 8 hours each night by going to bed at a regular time every evening. Your brain needs rest when you are asleep to relax and recover from things that have happened during the day, so don’t stay up late watching TV!

3) Eat healthy foods & drink plenty of water

What we eat and drink impacts our moods because they supply needed nutrients or deprive us of them – leading to physical exhaustion, which causes mental fatigue.

So make sure you focus mainly on whole foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meats (like fish), whole grains, and beans. And drink lots of water!

4) Take note of the thoughts you are having about your anxiety

For instance, if you’re feeling anxious about an upcoming interview because you think you might do poorly, ask yourself if any facts support this thought.

Most likely, the answer is no – since nothing is a guarantee in life, and we should never put pressure on ourselves to succeed before giving things our best shot!

But if there is something to worry about, remember that worrying doesn’t change anything – it just makes us feel bad. So try practicing some deep breathing or mindfulness techniques instead

5) Keep a journal & practice mindful meditation

Pay attention to how your body feels when it’s feeling anxious, and try to remember what thoughts were going through your mind at the time.

Just noticing these things brings you one step closer to understanding how your anxiety works – and once you’re aware of it, you’ll be better able to calm it down naturally!

Try taking a few minutes out of your day to write down everything that comes to mind, or try meditating for 2 minutes every morning and evening by sitting still with your eyes closed.

If it’s easier, continue counting your breaths from 1-10 over and over again until you reach 10 – then start over and do it all again! Remember to a deep breath as you count 🙂

6) Try not to let your feelings of anxiety dominate you

Focus on something else that’s positive and productive – like spending time with friends and family, volunteering at a food bank or shelter, or doing things you enjoy (like listening to music, going for a walk outside, painting, writing in a journal).

7) Practice gratitude

It’s easy to think only about the good things while ignoring all the bad ones when we’re feeling happy – but it takes practice to look at life through different lenses when feeling anxious!

So make sure you take some time every day to appreciate everything you have in life. The more thankful we are for what we already have, the less urgently we’ll want those materialistic

Final Thoughts:

Everyone feels anxious occasionally, but it can seem like the constant feeling of worry never goes away for those with anxiety disorders. If you’re one of these people, know that you’re not alone and there are things you can do to get your life back!
