We live in an uncertain world, and many people suffer from some level of anxiety. While these stressful feelings can accelerate into a serious medical issue, there are some things you can do to prevent your worries from overwhelming you.
If you suffer from anxiety frequently, try exercising. Regularly exercising helps to keep your mind and body fit. As a result, your anxieties can be kept at bay; try walking, swimming, aerobics or some other type of sport. You will be surprised by how much exercising can help minimise your anxiety.
If you are a big coffee drinker you should do yourself a huge favor and switch to decaffeinated coffee. Many people that suffer from anxiety do not realize the negative effects that coffee can have on their moods. Switching to decaf is a good idea, if you do not want to stop drinking coffee altogether.
When you are dealing with anxiety, be sure to take a time out every once in a while. Get a massage, listen to some relaxing music, read a book. Take some time away from your stressors and clear your mind. Then you will be able to tackle your challenges with a little less anxiety.
While it is important to keep up with the news, it can actually trigger anxiety pretty consistently, if not done in moderation. The news moves at a fast pace, and it is constantly relaying the latest stories of disasters or disheartening emotional accounts that trigger anxiety.
To help you deal with anxiety and rid yourself of negative feelings, try watching something on TV that cheers you up. Oftentimes watching your favorite TV show or a comedy which makes you laugh, will have a positive effect on how you are feeling. If you are feeling positive, then you stop thinking about the negative things that are causing your anxiety.
Breathe easy. When you start to feel anxious, try to concentrate on breathing correctly. Inhale through your nostrils for about two seconds, and then exhale through parted lips for four seconds. Continue this routine for a full minute. Proper breathing is essential to reducing sudden feelings of anxiety. Using a count to control your breathing can be an effective way to reduce anxious feelings.
Pick a count, such as 3 in, and 3 out. Repeat this pattern, until the feelings of anxiety have resolved, and passed. Once your breathing gets back to normal, follow it up with a couple of minutes of soothing, positive self-talk.
If your anxiety is so bad that you have a hard time sleeping you should adjust your nightly ritual accordingly. Avoid watching things like horror films and action movies that create negative feelings that persist once you go to bed. Try watching more relaxing programming or listening to a hypnotherapy C.D. before or when you are in bed.
If you have a small snack that is high in protein right before you go to bed, you will help your body keep steady blood sugar in the night. Many times your panic attacks and anxiety will happen in the middle of the night. The cause of this is often low blood sugar, so a snack will help you stay asleep.

The key to this is to understand that it takes time. When you look back over the months you will notice your progress, and after a year, you will be able to notice a significant change.
Take a few deep breaths. Anxiety attacks can strike at the worst times. If you find yourself experiencing one, don’t panic. Stop and take three deep breaths. It will have a cleansing and calming effect on your body. Slow your breathing, and try to think about something else, if your mind starts racing.
When you start feeling anxious, it can be hard to feel anything else. That’s why it’s a good idea to know what you will do when you start feeling that way. Being prepared for an anxiety attack will make the attack easier to get through.
