If you tend to feel anxious, I have good news for you. There are four things you can do at any time to reduce anxiety in a matter of seconds without much resources.
If you are struggling with high levels of anxiety, it may be necessary to seek professional help when dealing with this challenging subject. However, there are some simple tips that can make a significant difference in your overall well-being. Remember, like everything in life, it takes some effort to feel the improvements.
Anxiety usually comes from worrying about the future, near or distant. When it becomes constant it officially becomes an anxiety disorder. We can feel anxiety in our bodies through muscle tension usually in the neck area, tightness in the chest, digestive trouble, sleep issues, and other symptoms. When we feel anxious it's also normal to experience racing thoughts which clouds our mind and keeps us in the anxiety loop.
How To Cope With Anxiety:
- If you are feeling anxious and are in a safe private place you can meditate with a mantra like Om, and pronounce out loud letting the frequency cause vibrations in your body. This will help reconnect with your body, getting out of your head, and has a soothing effect.
- Another technique worth exploring is listening to binaural beats in the theta frequency range (4 to 8 Hz). While this theory is relatively new, it suggests that these beats can reduce stress and promote relaxation similar to meditation. Give it a try and see if it brings tranquility into your life.
- Shake it off! If you are feeling tension, shake your body, hands, arms, feet. It helps reduce tension, and on top of that it is fun.
- Nurture your spiritual side. Connect with spirituality through practices such as working with crystals or immersing yourself in nature's beauty. Alternatively, find solace in religious beliefs that resonate with you. These experiences provide meaning and offer comfort while fostering a sense of security in uncertain times.
Embrace these techniques wholeheartedly as tools for self-care during anxious moments. Remember that taking care of yourself is not only important but also empowering on your journey towards inner peace and well-being!
