How to manage Anxiety?
Treatment of anxiety is most effective if it tackles; cause, emotional consequences, mental consequences, physical consequences and vicious cycle.
Unfortunately, however, many people avoid seeking help because:
They are ashamed of embarrassment.
Maybe medication is not for them.
They believe the treatment will not work.
Asking for help shows weakness, or so they believe.
A healthy balanced diet provides the body with the nutrients it needs to help tackle certain anxiety aspects. Exercising is also essential; it reduces the amount of adrenaline in the body and releases “feel-good” hormones known as endorphins and reduces tensions.
Relaxation is an important part of treatment which may include listening to relaxing music. Finding ways to relax helps stimulate the brain, settle breathing, settle blood pressure, settle heart rates, improve sleep, reduce tension, and settle thinking.
Various muscle and physical relaxation methods can reduce tension, such as dancing, hypnosis, massage, and yoga.
Breathing techniques help limit anxiety and create calm, helping the mind and body in various ways by feeling more in control, removing toxins, delivering more oxygen, and stimulating the nervous system.
Identifying the causes, response and consequences of anxiety help tackle them. Keeping a record helps identify elements of the illness needed to break the cycle of anxiety; identifying what is good about life helps build perspective to balance or outweigh the anxieties, which might include comfort, family, friends, pleasures and warmth.
Herbal remedies may have anxiety-relieving tendencies, such as chamomile, ginseng, lemon balm, St. John’s wort and the Valerian.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy CBT is widely used in treating anxiety, focusing on unusual behaviours, emotions, and breaking them; adopting a holistic and healthy lifestyle approach will help enormously.
No one way will tackle anxiety, but the right combination can be very successful.
Generally, when anxiety has a severe impact on daily living, medication may be appropriate. The most commonly used medications include; antidepressants, antipsychotics, beta-blockers, mood stabilizers, and tranquillizers.
Medication alone may not be the best approach; combining other treatments such as a healthy diet and a good sleep better may be more effective.
Severe anxiety affects many people with serious negative effects on their quality of life; reassuringly, most people overcome anxiety disorders with the right approaches.
