Reduce Anxiety

Reduce Anxiety

Having anxiety can be a normal part of life – feeling anxious about a date or a new job is to be expected. When our anxiety is out of our control or impacting our lives it may become an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are amongst the most common of disorders. Social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and general anxiety can cause us to suffer during the most mundane parts of our lives. Symptoms of anxiety may include, feeling nervous, jittery, or helpless. We might experience increased heart rate, hyperventilation, sweating and even trembling. If you experience these it may be time to consult with a counsellor.

In the meantime, here are some tips to reduce anxiety and get on with your day to day!

  1. Keep physically active. Develop an exercise routine and hold yourself accountable. Exercise has been proven to lower stress and in turn, reduce our feelings of anxiety.
  2. Avoid alcohol. Yes, that “liquid courage” might make you feel more prepared to handle that speech but research has shown that alcohol can increase anxious feelings.
  3. Cut back on caffeine. Caffeine has been proven to increase heart rate, which can mimic signs of an attack for people with panic.
  4. Use relaxation techniques. Yoga, meditation and mindfulness can play a massive part in relaxation. The more relaxed we feel, the less likely to be hit with feelings of anxiety.
  5. Prioritize your sleep. Getting enough sleep makes all the difference in the world. Waking up refreshed and well-rested can decrease cortisol levels and release more relaxing feelings.
  6. Eat healthy foods. The better we treat our bodies the better they will treat us! Sticking to a healthy diet keeps your body in check, and making sure we are regulated throughout our bodies keeps us calm.
