SELFCARE SATURDAY – 11 Tips to Combat ANXIETY…!!
Having occasional feelings of anxiety is a normal part of life, but people with anxiety disorders experience frequent and excessive anxiety, fear, terror and panic in everyday situations. These feelings are unhealthy if they affect your quality of life and prevent you from functioning normally.
Common symptoms of anxiety disorders include:
A sense of impending panic, danger or doom
Increased heart rate
Obsessively thinking about the panic trigger
These feelings of anxiety and panic can interfere with daily activities and be difficult to control. They are out of proportion to the actual danger and can cause you to avoid places or situations.
While most people with anxiety disorders need psychotherapy or medications to get anxiety under control, lifestyle changes and coping strategies also can make a difference.
Here are 11 tips for coping with an anxiety disorder:
Keep physically active.
Avoid alcohol and recreational drugs.
Quit smoking, and cut back or quit drinking caffeinated beverages.
Use stress management and relaxation techniques.
Make sleep a priority.
Eat healthy foods.
Learn about your disorder.
Stick to your treatment plan.
Keep a journal.
See your health care provider or a mental health provider before your anxiety worsens. It’s easier to treat if you get help early.
