Dealing with anxiety and stress can be hard to do some days. Sometimes it feels as if the whole world is coming down around your ears. But don’t worry it’s not, at least not yet. Everyone suffers from this at some point or another in their lives, but there are some ways to deal with it.
You could see a doctor and ask his or her advice. But all they will do is give you some medication that might cause some side affects. Side effects are mainly diarrhea, upset stomach, nausea, insomnia, vision problems, urinary infection, and other things. Don’t forget the inherent liver damage that comes with taking medications as well.
But what doctors won’t tell you is that you can treat this yourself without medications. Doctors work with the insurance companies so there’s no way they would tell you how to treat things yourself when they can make a profit of you buying medication. Believe it or not it’s something you could have been doing all this time, and it’s simple. If you suffer from stress, anxiety, or worries then you need to try these methods.
The first method is breathing exercises. Practice taking deep, cleansing breaths whenever you feel yourself getting overloaded with worries, and concerns. This will help you keep your head on your shoulders, and keep your breathing under control. Keeping yourself calm when under stress or during an anxiety attack is crucial to not succumbing to the attack itself.
The next step is exercise. You don’t have to do this when the attack occurs but if you have any excess energy when the attack hits it will use it and make you worry more. That’s on of the reasons why people ho suffer from stress and anxiety attacks are so tired. Exercising burns this extra energy up before the attacks and if stress hits it will have nothing to feed on. Essentially you will be too tired to be stressed.
In addition it will keep you in shape, and you will generally feel better. This is always a plus in any case. Finally we come to meditation. Meditation doesn’t always have to be you sitting cross legged in a room full of candles chanting like a religious monk. This is just the stereotypical expectation. Meditation is in fact anything that focuses you and allows your mind to go into a deep state of relaxation.
When you reach this state you can do many forms of self improvement. But mainly you can attack stress and worries from within. By attacking them in this way you are ridding them from your mind, and since they are no longer in your mind they can’t bother you. This takes some practice though but it is worth it.
In any case if you practice one or all of the above mentioned methods then you should be able to handle your stress and anxiety better. Keep in mind though natural treatments done yourself have no time table. The length of your recovery is linked to the amount of work you put into it. So essentially take the time out to work on it every day. Whether it’s just breathing, exercise, meditation, or all of the above eventually you will get there.
