Living with anxiety on a daily basis can be really stressful. And while you are dealing with anxiety, it is very important not to sway away with the symptoms and commit yourself to a treatment. For instant release of anxiety, you really don't need to go for a vacation or to the spa or a weekend retreat. It is easy to beat anxiety within 5-15 minutes, just being where you are.
So don't think and instantly reduce your anxiety to give yourself a wonderful day. Here are 5 ways to reduce your anxiety immediately.
- Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. As per a research, doing meditation daily changes the neural pathways of the brain, thereby making it more flexible towards stress. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
- Deep Breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth. Psychologists state that deep breathing helps to bring down stress and anxiety by lowering the blood pressure.
- Laugh Aloud: A good laugh is a great way to shed off the stress and anxiety. When you laugh, chemical endorphins are released which elevate your mood. A good laugh also lowers the cortisol levels which are the stress hormone.
- Talk to someone: Distracting yourself by talking to friends and family helps. The mind starts wandering when in anxiety and alone and the effective technique to talk to some trusted person helps. The support you get from family and friends just boosts you back and wards you off the symptoms. In case of a panic attack, you can request the company of a friend and relative to watch over you.
- Trick your anxious thoughts: Anxiety does not happen suddenly but is due to the mind's tendency to have negative thoughts spiraling day in and day out and the worse is that you have no control over the thoughts. Learn to tame these thoughts and the triggers which cause these to keep anxiety at bay.
There are strategies which you can try to help you keep anxious thoughts away.
1. Question yourself when you experience anxiety. A long checklist helps you make your thoughts more realistic.
2. Give affirmations to yourself that everything is okay, you will get over the situation. Usually, affirmations are made to comfort one.
3. Know the physical symptoms as many times physical sensations like in case of a panic attack tend to trigger anxiety and stress. When you get used to the symptoms, the mind does not send signals for anxiety to the brain. Create exercise to habituate yourself to a panic attack. There is no cure for anxiety but the fastest way to get your anxiety under control is to simply manage it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist and ask a free question.
I am usually very unpredictable and easy going but lately I feel like sitting in front of my laptop and open my books and never get out of my room and listen to music all day and drown out other things in my life. What do you suggest I do? I think I have depression but I am not sure. So your opinion will really help thanks.
I wake up in the morning around 5 AM and go about my chores for going to the office, including making my black coffee, half an hour's exercise, shave and bath. Between 5 & 7 AM I am terribly depressed every day and do not want to go to the office. I long for the nights and I hit the bed at around 10 PM and generally, I sleep well. Once in a week/10 days, I have to pop in half Calmpose. I consume hard drinks (a quarter bottle, i.e. 3-4 pegs) atleast two times in a week. Once I reach the office, I am completely engrossed in my work, which is mostly on the computer. I am about 56 years of age. My boss in office is not an easy person to work and the organization is also not a good one which, in fact, is the impression of many of my colleagues, both about the office and the boss. But we can't leave as we have a couple of years left. As for me, personally, I was divorced about 15 years and am not in touch with my former wife and only daughter. I have not remarried and am living with my elder brother and his family and our mother. Saturdays and Sundays are holidays and I am mostly at home and seldom go out. Please advise if I am in some kind of a depression?
Another person’s hurting words and actions can certainly trigger sad thinking and feelings but remember over thinking on those words will lead you nowhere. Putting your energy to think another people’s actions and behaviour, on which you have no control, can lead you in a state of sadness, self-compassion and hopelessness. Psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo suggests on such conditions when another person hurts you, remember yourself that you have no control on another person’s actions and mindset, be it good or bad. So don’t waste your time or energy thinking about the incident. Instead of that, focus on inner conversations, self-analysis and put efforts to improvise things in your life and its goals.
2. Embrace optimism in your life:
Often when people get hurt they explain things to themselves in a pessimistic way. AVOID that. Remember very often pessimistic thinking approach leads to self-isolation, depression and withdrawal. What is required rather - being optimistic, try to adopt a way of thinking like, “the person talked to me roughly, did I wrongly intervene in his/her personal space? , I should take care of this next time”, or “something might not be right at that person’s end and his/her rough behaviour is an outcome of that situation”. Such kind of thinking style will always help you to become a better observer of life and will improve your interpersonal skill and the way you handle yourself.
3. Friends and relatives VS Telephones Mobiles and computers
Sitting in front of TV, Mobile and laptop screen for hours reduces brain stimulation. Remember humans are designed to do whole body movement, to move our muscles that stimulate our cerebellum, which in turn stimulates our cortex. So tell yourself if you want to be happy in life, then choose family outings, relative visits, friend gatherings, exercises over TV, mobile and PC.
