#1. Practice Mediation

We often think that we are relaxing our mind if we are sitting down on comfortable cushions, watching television or having some munchies while talking to a friend. Unfortunately, as much as those things are enjoyable, it doesn’t mean that those activities are helping your mind to unwind and relax. To fully relax and clear your mind, you need to set aside at least 10 – 20 minutes for yourself each day. During this time it is best to be completely alone and use breathing and focusing techniques to help you get into a relaxed state. You can try relaxation techniques, deep breathing, visualization, yoga or meditation to name a few. Choose one that suits you best so that it becomes easier for you to stick with. The goal is to find time for yourself when no one will disturb you so that you can connect with yourself in mind, body, and soul, and focus on yourself.

#2. Use Mantras and Visualization Techniques

This step sounds simple but it is one that many people struggle with. Know that you have within yourself the necessary tools to heal and grow. Trust in yourself and tell yourself that you are capable and strong. If you don’t believe in yourself and your ability to get better your mind will make that true. Remind yourself of your abilities every day. Practice mantras and visualization to help you in your quest to heal anxiety naturally.

Repeat mantras daily. Repeat mantras such as: “I am capable and strong and I can conquer any challenge that comes my way.” The more you repeat and remind yourself of your abilities, the more likely you realize your full potential and ability to grow.

#3. Get to The Bottom of Your Anxiety

It can be helpful to know what are the roots of your anxiety and figure out where it came from and how it started.

If you constantly feel anxious, it can be helpful to look back at the time when it started and examine to see what possible causes might be. If you have anxiety that stemmed from worry or fear than it is likely that the anxiety was created to protect you and keep you safe. By understanding and analyzing your anxiety you might be able to better deal with it.

#4. Improve Your Lifestyle.

What we eat, drink, and how much physical activity we get can directly affect anxiety and the symptoms that accompany it. Your body and mind need to be properly nourished and oxygenated for you to feel and be well. Poor eating habits, high sugar or other bad habits can increase anxiety and contribute to symptoms of anxiety. Try to make a point of paying attention to your daily diet and how you feel after drinking and eating certain things. You may find a pattern between your anxiety and what foods and drinks you consume. Also by observing what you eat, you may realize that you might be lacking certain foods in your diet that can help improve your overall health and help you reduce the symptoms of anxiety.

Being healthy, knowing your limitations, having good eating habits and exercising can all contribute to reducing anxiety naturally. By paying attention to how you feel mentally and physically you can better understand why anxiety affects your health. Once you can understand your anxiety you might be able to use your new knowledge to help you better control it and take control of your life.

If your anxiety systems continue you must talk to your doctor and seek professional help so you can fight this serious issue.
