Tips and Tricks to Relieve Anxiety

Anxiety is something that everyone faces, sometime in their lifetime. Whether that be at a young age or when they mature into an adult. But anxiety can affect anyone at anytime. The first time I dealt with anxiety it was the summer of 2013, while I was vacationing in Sri Lanka. Throughout the past 3 years, I have learned ways to deal with anxiety 🙂

1. Relax

Anxiety almost always occurs when you are stressing out. Instead of causing stress on your mind, take a few minutes to relax. This can be done in whatever way you wish, whether it be a nap or just sitting there.

2.  Read a Book

My favourite way to destress or relieve anxiety is reading a book. At any time of the day, one can catch me holding a book. Reading a fictional book allows you to escape into another reality or universe but a little while. This will help keep your mind at ease.

3. Acceptance

Constantly, when one is feeling anxious they tend to push away those thoughts. But they do not realize that pushing away your thoughts only make it worse. As you are not giving it attention to make it go away. When you have a thought you do not enjoy, question it using the 5 W’s and How. This will help make the thought go away

4. Workout

My getting your body moving, you are allowing yourself to focus on something else. As well as working out releases endorphins that lighten your mood. As Like Elle Woods said, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. ”

5. DO SOMETHING YOU ENJOY

What do you do to manage not only your anxiety but also stress?
