How To Relieve Anxiety Fast With 6 Simple Relaxation Techniques

"How do I stop my uncontrollable anxiety?"

"I need some serious anxiety relief!"

"How do I relax?"

"How do I prevent panic attacks from happening?"

It's sometimes difficult to determine the initial cause of your anxiety. That's because over time, stress and unhappiness can build up and morph into feelings of general helplessness and worry.

There may be days when you feel unable or unmotivated to do things you've done all your life. This condition plays tricks on your mind and will wreak havoc with your mental health.

Luckily, you can reduce your anxiety by adding some relaxation techniques into your life. For best results, be patient with yourself as they begin to work! Clear your schedule and your mind. Embrace the relief you're about to experience so you can live anxiety-free.

Implement these six simple relaxation techniques and kick your anxiety to the curb:

Get Fresh Air.

When you feel an anxiety attack coming on, run for fresh air! Fresh air inhaled slowly can help you relax almost instantly. Give yourself 10 minutes to take in the freshness and feel it calming your entire being.

  • Enclosed spaces like offices tend to worsen episodes of anxiety. This is why it's a good idea to head outdoors the minute you feel an anxiety attack coming on.
  • Closing your eyes while breathing deeply can help to expedite the process.

Where's the nearest door?

 

Participate In Guided Yoga.

Yoga in itself is a great meditation tool. But sometimes, you need the guidance of a yogi to get your mind in the right place. Yoga instructors can guide your thoughts and breathing patterns for best results.

  • There are great DVDs available where the yogi gives instructions and explains how a particular pose positively impacts the physical and spiritual being.
  • Taking a yoga class can help reduce stress and anxiety in several ways. Having other people around you who are calm can help put you in a healthy state of mind.

When will you start?

 

Remove Clutter.

A cluttered space contributes to heightened anxiety.

  • Ensure your office is free of clutter. Remove mounds of paper or file them away.
  • Get the rooms in your home in order so there is no sign of mess around you.

How unorganized or messy is your personal space? Dedicate 5-10 minutes to start now! Once you begin, you'll keep going.

 

Get Exercise.

Regular exercise is one of the best ways to relieve stress, especially when it's causing anxiety. Exercising releases the "happy" hormones and helps free you of anxiety and fill you with joy.

  • Choose an exercise activity that demands your complete attention. This helps to get your mind off the anxiety triggers.

What exercise(s) will you choose?

 

Remove Food Triggers.

Some foods trigger a negative response to stress. Do some research on those foods and try to eliminate them from your diet.

  • Caffeine has been tagged as the enemy for anxiety sufferers! Take a break from your morning coffee and see if you feel less anxious.

What foods do you need to reduce or eliminate?

 

Avoid The News.

While it's a good idea to keep up with current affairs, if you have anxiety it might be better to avoid the news! Because there are so many troubling stories on the news, you're bound to be affected.

  • Instead of watching or reading the news, ask someone to update you on the lighter news stories.
  • Use your news time to watch something lighter like a comedy or a home renovation show. Visit SolveYourProblem and improve your day immediately!

How much news do you read, watch or hear? What will you do instead?

 

Unfortunately, anxiety has become a way of life for many people and the new norm.

However, it's not healthy and you can eliminate much of your anxiety by making a few easy adjustments.

Allow yourself to experience a calm existence by making the above changes in your life.

It may take a little while to get rid of anxiety completely, but be patient and your efforts will prevail.
