Anxiety And Tension

How I Deal With My Anxiety


Anxiety is defined as “a state of uneasiness and apprehension, as about future uncertainties”. Dealing with anxiety is different for each person, and what works for some may not work for others.

Some of the things that I utilize to deal with my anxiety are:

Meditation
Mediation is a perfect way to relax. Meditation help you focus on one’s inner-self and let the problems, uncertainties and fears slip out of focus. This way, you can allow for a clearer solution to be found. Sometimes simply stepping away from your problems and calming down can help you see solutions.

Exercise
Anxiety can leave you feeling depressed and run-down. But, with exercise, you can reinvigorate yourself. Exercise can boost endorphins in your body, leaving you feeling refreshed and less anxious.

Yoga
Yoga is a form of exercise that does not involve impact. Yoga is more a series of fluid movements and stretches than vigorous exercise. The fluidity of yoga is very invigorating, yet it is relaxing and calming while still producing endorphins in your system.

Talking
Sometimes talking about the things that are making you feel anxious can really help lighten the burden of the anxiety. Find someone that you trust to talk to. By vocalizing your anxiety, you may find that you are less anxious.

Relaxing
By indulging in whatever relaxes you the most - a bubble bath, a walk in the park, watching a movie - you can allow your anxiety to pass by not focusing on it and instead enjoying your relaxing time. Detaching yourself from your problems and fears, even briefly, can help you cope with anxiety.
